Call for participants from Serbia for project in Macedonia

europeDear youth workers and young leaders from Serbia, CET Platform is proud to invite you to apply for participation on projects “Capacity Building For Those Working With Socially Excluded Young People” that will be hosted in Vinica, Macedonia, between February 26 (arrivals) and March 04 (departures), 2015.


This is a 5 day training course aimed at those working on this topic in a cross-culturalsetting wishing to improve their confidence in the English language in the context of this priority topic. The aim is to increase the quality and quantity of both localised and European project work to the benefit of all concerned.

Organised by the Macedonian Anti-Poverty Platform, it will be held in Vinica, Republic of Macedonia and provide you with the opportunity not only to practise your language skills but also to discover the town with Roman fortress and unique terracotta icons known worldwide. You will have chance to visit the vineyards in this part of Macedonia where the sweetest grape in Europe was discovered and now a very good wine is made out of it.

This winning combination of content and language will help you to increase the capacity and potential of your organisation by dismantling and removing barriers to communication, thereby helping you to realise your developmental goals. We can help you to gain clarity to the topic in a European context using learner-centred methodology, thereby avoiding ambiguity and misconceptions based on cultural and language differences which the training team have the ability to recognise in every way. By scaffolding a quality learning process which strengthens the confidence and resolve of the participants to work on a European level in their chosen topic, they will create new and improved projects; a tangible measurable outcome for all stakeholders.

We invite 3 legally resident participants per promoter country with experience of living and/or working in challenging communities who wish to explore the topic, share tools and experiences to the benefit of all present. You must have a working knowledge of the language and be able to participate in discussions within the group. IMPORTANT: We do not accept participants who are related to one another or participants who come with friends. It is our aim and priority to maximise the full potential of the training. Please respect the programme and attend as a motivated individual who is active in the community in a contributory way.

This innovative training course will be delivered by a unique and dynamic international team who are all members of the Training Pool for their own National Agency. In addition to which they are all also highly qualified to teach English as a Foreign Language, and so this combination of skills and experience provides an unrivalled wealth of learning and support on a topic that is relevant to you and in way that is both memorable and beneficial to you in your work on a European level. The programme comprises a meaningful and worthwhile series of highly interactive workshops with a strong thread running through it. This has not happened by chance but through years of combined experience and knowledge gained within a strong training team drawn to each other through common values and a passion for a theme such as this.

You will be provided with a wealth of opportunities to interact and peer-share, clearly making the most of practising the language at all times. Use of mother tongues will be discouraged from the moment you arrive. We would request that wherever possible, participants do not apply with friends and colleagues as we would like the multiplying effect to be as wide as possible. Preparation work on the topic will be necessary and instructions given in advance of the training.


Accommodation, subsistence and training costs are fully covered. There will be no participation fee. Please mind that travel reimbursement will be done after project report is accepted by National Agency which may take few mounts after the project. Reimbursement will be done via bank transfer.
