A Self-DiscoveryTraining Course
Be the leader of your life
The concept of talent development has become very popular in
many organisations and companies. It’s no longer associated with
developing certain talents but rather as personal growth and lifelong
learning. Talent Development is a process that starts from self-awareness
and aims at self-empowerment.
The training course “InsideOut” is designed as a process of self-discovery in which participants will have
the opportunity to confront the way they live with the way they are. They will do that by reconnecting
with their inner worlds of emotions, passions and needs. During the project we will reﬂect on the
concept of identity and self-awareness, while exploring the connection between body and mind and
ﬁnding our inner leadership as well as we will develop some skills that will enhance the process of
Objectives of InsideOut 3:

•To Explore Basic Concepts of Emotional Awareness and
Body Awareness in the Context of Personal
•To Stimulate the Creativity, Vulnerability,
Conﬁdence and Resilience of the Participants
•To Encourage and Serve the Participants in
Planning Their Learning Process Also After the
Training Course and Also Implement With
Their Target Groups
•To Learn More About the Erasmus+
Program and its Actions, and Youth Pass
as a Tool of Recognition of the Key
Overall aim: to explore how to
develop our talents and passions
to increase the employability
skills through the tools of self-
awareness and self-discovery
The approach and methodology
This training course will be based on non-formal and
informal educa6on methods with a self-directed learning
approach. That means the par6cipants are responsible for
their own learning and throughout ac6vi6es facilitators
guide the par6cipants through their own learning process.
The training course will be characterised by highly
par6cipatory, interac6ve and experien6al methods. The
working methods will include case studies, working in pairs
and small groups, team building ac6vi6es, physical exercises,
movement ac6vi6es, relaxa6on techniques, storytelling,
crea6ve expression exercises, discussions, and self-
reﬂec6on. Some sessions will be completed by theore6cal
inputs and all them will be followed by group reﬂec6on or
Proﬁle of the participants
Youth workers, youth leaders, educators and teachers.
We invite participants who work in education and have direct impact on young people. The project is
ﬁnanced by Erasmus+ and aims at rising competences of people actively involved in youth work.
Therefore we highly recommend this TC for people over 25 who already have some experience in
youth work and search for new opportunities of their personal development in order to increase their
inner motivation and job satisfaction. Participants should be ready to share and reﬂect on their
personal experiences and emotions as well as participate in physical activities involving body
movement and physical contact with other participants. It’s also important that participants will have a
chance to network, represent the sending organisation and take decision about future cooperation.
After the training course participants will be
asked to share the outcomes of the project and
help to promote it on local level. They will be
encouraged to prepare dissemination materials
such as: articles, photos, videos and share with
their partners using social media and websites
of their organisations. They will be also asked
to describe how they can implement their
learning and methods into their work and
design little actions they can do to
promote the concept of talent
development in their organisations
and target groups.

What to bring?
Because for this training we have chosen a speciﬁc location we’ll have to
adapt ourselves to its requirements. It’s a “farm house” and the sharing
of the accommodation will be part of the experience.
We will have to bring:
• Sleeping bag (ask Javi if you can’t get one)
• Shampoo, toothbrush…
There will be a variety of rooms, some people will be sharing the room with 1 person (in a double
bed), 6 person (in bunk beds) and 8 person (in bunk beds).
We know that sharing showers, even with double curtain, could be challenging for some people, if so
we really hope you to take it as a “out of confort zone” experience.
We’ll make our best to assure you feel confortable and your privacy is respected at all times.

As we are a very big group we are looking for volunteers who would like to sleep
on mattress on the ﬂoor, on another room with just 3 people.
Or, if they prefer, we could plant a camping tent too outside.
