Welcome to the starting point! This voyage will give you the opportunity to travel one, two or all of the journeys offered to you by following a story line...
In days long past, young people chose to undertake a long journey of learning opportunities in order to master a trade and earn more privileges. They would travel places, meet people, let themselves be taught by guild members – all to develop and refine their skills and become accomplished tradesmen or craftsmen such as textile workers, stone cutters, glass workers, carpenters, carvers, metal workers, armourers, shoemakers etc. Supervised experience, proven skills and years of apprenticeship later, they would become a journeyman – a qualified tradesman ready to develop into a master.
We would like to invite you to our modern-day voyage of learning and discovery while still preserving some flavour of the times long gone. Should you enter our portal, 4 levels of virtual journeys await you! You can travel them all or only some of them.
Leave behind your status of an Apprentice and dare to assume the role of the Journeyman (levels 1-3). Once a certified modern Journeyman, you will find yourself close to the acclaimed Youth Worker Master (level 4) that you can grow to be only after having completed the entire journey, on all 4 areas.
Similar to journeys of learning in the old day, we propose you a 21st-century journey on different virtual places, where to discover:
· Tools to be used in getting ready for a career nowadays, from discovering your inner preferences to preparing yourself for an interview – 1st area;
· Movies about 10 professions, descriptions, and some career simulations, which will help you unveil aspects of jobs you want to find out more about – 2nd area;
· How to learn, in an online training course focusing on developing your learning to learn competence – 3rd area;
· A training course for the youth worker aimed at those who would like to find out more about ”the youth guides” – 4th area;
At the end of each topic area you will get a bracelet indicating the successful completion of that particular journey.
From the ”masters”, the most active ”travellers” from each country will be invited to apply for taking a real final trip, in Transylvania, Romania, taking place from 6th to 9th of July 2017. There, in an open space, medieval environment you will have the opportunity to share your results, learn from others, and enjoy, once again, the full process of learning.
During this trip you can go deeper and become a member of ”The youth workers guild”. Membership to another guild – “The learning to learn guild” – will also be available for those successfully completing the learning to learn online training course.
Moreover, a special face-to-face, offline level is open to people who are able to speak Romanian and enrol in a certified training course.
Have fun and enjoy the ride! You can start now, here!
