In the beginning of the training the participants experienced two different types of simulation games. In the end of the training the participants created their own simulation games, and were enabled to conduct them with their own target groups on topics they chose for themselves if they work on international or local youth projects. The training course was based on a non-formal and a trainee centered approach putting the needs and abilities of the participants into the center of the training.
The Training-of-Trainers focused on 24 youth workers learnt how to design and how to implement simulation games.
The overall Goal of this ToT was to pass on the method of simulation games in order to enable the participants to use it in their work. To effectively achieve this goal, we do not only want to demonstrate the variety of different formats of simulation games, but also breed enthusiasm among the participants concerning the method, by letting them experience it. The training improved the training competencies of the participating trainers, facilitators and team leaders in the field of non-formal education and youth work.
