Context
Non-Formal Education (NFE) is crucial for a complementary development of young people. NFE develops many different aspects in a young person’s life: Beneficiaries of NFE experiences become more self-confident and have more resources at their hands. They receive tools and motivation to actively participate in and shape their societies and communities. Especially relevant today with a youth unemployment rate of over 25% in the European Union, a study of the European Youth Forum (YFJ): http://issuu.com/yomag/docs/reportnfe_print has proven that NFE contributes to the employability of young people, providing 5 out of 6 competences most demanded by employers. Thus, NFE also contributes to bridging the gap between the labour market and the education system.
In this context it’s crucial to ensure a quality experience of NFE to the participants of trainings. Even though occasional quality checks take place in all the organizations, at the moment there is no coherent approach to quality assurance and impact measurement of trainings.

The long term project idea
The training course in Altamura is part of the long term project QUAT (QUALITY ASSURANCE OF TRAININGS). This long term, project aims to join resources in a common effort make sure that the indicators are implemented in all our NFE activities, share best practices for their implementation, allow an outside evaluation and comparison between the different organisations on their implementations to make sure that in the end we have common standards and our trainings are of high quality to give the best possible outcome for the learners. It also aims to build the capacities of the organisations involved and the youth workers themselves.
