This Training Course aims to explore Sexual Identity and Gender Expresion/Identity for those unfamiliar with the LGBT+ community.

Queer it Up! is a 5 days European multilateral training course for youth workers. This Training Course aims to explore Sexual Identity and Gender Expression/Identity for those unfamiliar with the LGBT+ collective. The TC will provide participants with the necessary competences to include Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression perspectives in Youth Work Practice and to combat prejudice and discriminatory attitudes.

We seek youth workers who are interested in promoting accessible and inclusive youth work, and who are committed to developing their own practice.  The training course will also provide an opportunity to build relationships and to help youth workers to network with youth work practitioners from across Europe.

Methods of work

The course methodology in this training is based on experiential learning and non-formal education, in an atmosphere where participants can learn from each other (peer learning) and feel empowered to share their experiences, and critically examine their practice.

Some sessions will be worked in small groups and the theoretical topics both in plenary and small group. Spaces for participants to share experiences will be provided in order for the participants to be more actively involved in the course.

Additionally, online live interviews, videos, graphic facilitation and storytelling methods, Self-directed learning and open space activities, will support the flow of the Training Course.
