The project ARMOUR aims to support first line practitioners, parents and policy makers to help prevent radicalization among young people. To do so, seven workshops were designed, each focusing on a topic which is seen as a possible causal factor in the process of radicalization. .
A three-day Train the Trainer (TTT) course has been designed. On one hand, it is meant for first line practitioners to get acquainted with the TTT to be able to give the training themselves; on the other hand, the TTT can also serve as an opportunity to get knowledge on radicalization and its causal factors and experience examples of possible exercises to influence these causal factors.
The dedicated Training Manual describes the methodology, timing, objective, input, and output. It provides more in-depth explanation of the concepts applied and offers specific exercises. Some of these exercises are designed to support better understanding of the topics, some have been created to identify or map the problems, and others to help solving these problems.
Due to the mixture of effects and topics, it makes sense to use them in combination and carry them out repeatedly in order to be effective and to reach the desired results. Examples of the exercises will give a good impression of the way they assist in reaching the goals of each workshop. The Train the Trainer material is provided along the 3 sessions that are envisioned for the course. The Training Manual supports the autonomous and sustainable implementation of the courses by practitioner organisations.
=> To complement the train-the-trainers material an e-learning training is offered on the HERMES TRAINING platform.
