4 weeks of training in assisting others with school education

The Trophées Solidaires, an initiative that rewards the best solidarity and humanitarian projects by students in higher education, is launching the "Training in supporting school education" MOOC online with the support of the Orange Foundation.
The first MOOC designed to train volunteers, students or parents wishing to help children or young people experiencing academic difficulties, this free training will begin on 14 April next on the Open Classrooms website.
Advance registration has already begun.



4 weeks of training

This MOOC, which is hosted on the Open Classrooms platform, offers numerous testimonials and reports from volunteers and stakeholders on the ground. Those participating in the MOOC will learn about the fundamental principles of education and benefit from a wealth of advice to help with the progress of the young people they are supporting. Resource documents, links to useful websites and quizzes will be offered throughout these 4 weeks of training.

The main topics covered will include: the first steps (the missions of an assistant, initial contact with a young person, etc.), the various ways of conducting an individual or group session, personal development and expanding one’s horizons through the youth project and the use of digital tools.

Participant questions will be answered through a forum, thanks to the participation of a number of experts.

Why this MOOC?

Today, almost 700,000 young people in France are experiencing serious difficulties with academic work. 150,000 pupils leave school each year at the age of 15 without obtaining any diploma. This reality has moved many young students, who are often involved in associations, to support those who are falling behind. This MOOC has been developed for the purposes of training them for this supporting role.
