Culture Education Department is sharing experiences on student’s training in real life conditions
Professionals of youth work from Estonia, Finland and Great Britain met to exchange best practices in the framework of a common project “Student’s Practice Management in Youth Work Curricula: Exchange of Best Practices”
The aim of this meeting was to share and analyze each other’s experiences and find ways how to ensure that students gain practical experience throughout the course of their degree. The partners in this project are Newman University in Birmingham, UK; Humak University of Applied Sciences in Finland and Tallinn University, University of Tartu Narva College and University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy from Estonia. The representation from Estonia makes the project special for us because all the higher education institutions involved in teaching youth work are also connected with it.
The activities carried out through this project are planned to involve all the participating countries. The opening meeting took place in Narva in mid-September and from October 18-21 a meeting to exchange best practices took place in Newman University. The next meeting is set to take place at Humak University in Finland and the final meeting is scheduled for January in Tallinn University. Every university has two representatives at each meeting and these people are directly involved with the youth work curricula at their respective home institutions. Viljandi Culture Academy is represented by Piret Eit and Ülle Roomets.
The project is supported by Archimedes Foundation Erasmus+ funding
