Professionalization of Junior Coaches
Project start: 1.10.2012
Project end: 30.9.2014
There is a growing demand for young urban performing arts and media coaches in schools and youth work institutions in the cities of North-Western Europe. A chance for a growing number of young urban performing and media artists from the culturally diverse quarters of those big cities.
In the previous project “The ROOTS & ROUTES Academy”, we have developed a curriculum for a Junior Coach education, providing young artists with basic educational and management skills. “Steps ahead” will transfer this concept to new countries and settings, adapting it to the situation in Greece and Italy, and will, in line with the needs of the young coaches, extend the curriculum towards closer cooperation with the labour market, including wider entrepreneurial competencies and “testing zones” for young coaches, providing work experiences in real-life settings.
