When looking at employability skills desired in the current job market, we see the importance of effective communication, teamwork, creative thinking and problem-solving is increasing. However, this set of skills is hardly trained in the traditional school scene. Soft skills require a challenging environment that gives an opportunity to assess oneself and own behaviour and they are developed through real life work and often through gaming techniques and methods. Quest games are one of these methods, involving a team of people working together to fulfil challenging mental, logical, at times physical tasks together under a specific time limit. With this training course we would like to discover connection of quest games with soft skills development. The training aims to provide youth workers & youth leader with tools, frameworks and space to create and playtest educational portable quest rooms and outdoor quests that foster soft skill development in young people. The training course is designed for youth leaders, youth workers, trainer, teachers, educators, NGO volunteers, game enthusiasts. Ideally participants are involved in youth work or education of young people daily/weekly.
Interested applicants are to fill the participation form here by Saturday 13th April 2019.
