The training course “DTVS: Digital Tools and Visual Storytelling, new instruments for
communication” takes place in Nicosia, is inspired by the need to
create better conditions through which young people can enter the world of work through
the right skills.
The context in which the training course takes on functionality is that dictated by the
priorities of the key action KA1 of program Erasmus+ which in its 2020 guide explains: “for
equipping youth workers with competences and methods for their professional
development, including for digital youth work”.
The problem of unemployment, after the various analyses carried out, is one of the most
urgent to be solved, therefore equipping the Youth Workers with skills concerning the
digital world will give them the opportunity to realize themselves in the immediate future.
Nowadays the world of work, in most fields of application, is focused on everything related
to digital development skills including the ability to communicate one’s work through social
media and visual storytelling to attract more users interested in their own services and be
efficient in presenting your brand and be recognizable.
The training course therefore has to interface with the problem of unemployment and
overcome it through actions and activities, carried out through non-formal methodologies,
which can help the Youth Workers and some of the points of interest on which the project is
based are among others:
The youngsters participating in the project come from: Cyprus, Spain,Portugal , Romania, Russia and Egypt, and are aged between 18 and 30 and during the activities they will always be divided into mixed groups by gender and nationality to better allow the exchange cultural.
The activities created specifically based on the project theme are all based on the non-formal learning methodology. The driving concept of each activity is to encourage the increase and new knowledge of skills related to the digital world, whether the activities are indoor or outdoor.
Thanks to the training course and non-formal learning methods, participants will have an
impact on their personal life and also on their professional life, the increase of knowledge
there will form for immediate entry into the job market, the results that will be first achieved in
the short term are:
attract job opportunities;
professional way that will increase their CV;
the training therefore gives Youth Workers and NGOs the opportunity to be efficient in digital
communication for the world of work through the main areas such as: visual (through visual
storytelling and video making activities) and online communication (through activities on
social media );
