28 Youth Work Competence Framework by SALTO-YOUTH As youth work has gained a more European and international perspective, there is a need to highlight the competences required for working within these contexts. In response to that, the Competence Model for Youth Workers to Work Internationally has been developed by SALTO-YOUTH, in the framework of the European Training Strategy (ETS) in the field of youth. The model is a guiding and reflection tool for youth workers who participate in international learning mobility projects, educational staff and trainers who organise international mobility projects and organisations that develop training strategies for youth workers. The model focuses on the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and behaviours within eight competences: facilitating individual and group learning in an enriching environment, designing programmes, organising, and managing resources, collaborating successfully in teams, communicating meaningfully with others, displaying intercultural competence, networking, and advocating, developing evaluative practices to assess and implement appropriate change. 1. Facilitating individual and group learning in an enriching environment The set of knowledge, skills, and attitudes to improve a young person’ learning process, enhancing their motivation, and supporting them in recognising and meeting their needs. This involves setting an ongoing dialogue and collaboration between individuals, groups, and communities. 2. Designing programmes The set of knowledge, skills and attitudes to design and develop (educational) programmes in line with the needs of the multifaceted groups and environments internationally. Indirectly, it also refers to addressing political, societal, and cultural issues in youth work. 3. Organising and managing resources The set of knowledge, skills, and attitudes to identify the values and working culture of youth projects and youth organisations and the influencing factors, respectively. It includes recognising the impact of leadership styles, the way motivation is enhanced, and risks are managed. Finally, it also includes being aware of the existing national legislation and the strategies to manage financial resources. 4. Collaborating successfully in teams
