Welcome to Skills Summary e-learning course for youth sector!
This e-learning has been developed to strengthen your capacity in supporting young people to recognise, track and develop their life skills and your capacity to capture the impact of non-formal education and youth work.
Skills Summary is an easy to use online tool that captures the skills young people gain by participating in youth work and volunteering opportunities, building their confidence, so that they can better communicate the value of these essential skills to future employers.
This training is for all who work with young people, regardless of your level of knowledge of the Skills Summary tool – you can start from the very beginning and get to know the concept or you can just refresh your knowledge in some areas if you have already done our training or have used Skills Summary.
This online course should take you approximately 30 minutes to complete, but we would like to invite you to take more time and reflect on each module and your learning. You can pause and take a break at any point you want/need and get back to it at a later stage. You can also click into modules at the order you prefer. For example, if you are already familiar with the concept of Skills Summary, but would like to remind yourself of the features of the website and how to navigate it, you can simply skip the first two modules and click into Module 3: Tour of the Tool.
This course will provide you with understanding, information and knowledge of Skills Summary as well as some activities that you can run with your young people. We also have different resources to get you inspired and resources with suggested activities you can use to connect your young people with Skills Summary, you can find them all on our resource page.
To participate fully in this online course, you will need:
- A relatively quiet space for you to concentrate.
- Speakers or headphones as this course uses video and audio.
- A pen and paper or an open Word document to record any questions, reflections, comments you might have.
- A desktop, laptop, tablet or a mobile phone. This course is mobile friendly, but you might prefer using a desktop computer if available to you.
