Bakketun Folkehøgskole is proud to present its Erasmus+ projects, an exciting initiative that provides staff and students with unique opportunities for personal and professional development through international collaboration.
Erasmus+ is the EU's program for education, training, youth, and sport, offering support for mobility and cooperation between educational institutions in Europe. Here is an overview of the projects:

Natural Curriculum

"Natural Curriculum" is a long-term project under the ERASMUS+KA2 Programme.

Project results:

The Main Result of the project is the E-learning Module, together with the E-learning platform. The topic, in a very brief description, will be "Civic Education through Outdoor Methods." This will be a "Ready to Use Product" envisioned for a certain period, (eg 15 lessons/ working hours) logically structured and holistically built up, including concrete theoretical framing and resources, set of activities & exercises, games, video lectures, supportive materials, guidelines, Assignments, step-by-step description of the process, possible adaptation tips, etc. In other words, it will be an educational curriculum that can be taken, slightly adapted to the context, and used by Vocational Educational teachers, Youth Workers, Youth Centers & NGOs, etc. as their extra-curricular material.

The project results will soon be ready at: https://www.naturalcurriculum.org/

Outdoor Trainers

Train Outdoor Trainer (TOT) is a three phase training course for youth workers, youth leaders, educators and teachers who want to learn how to integrate Outdoor Adventure Learning into their work practice. The project will be based on Adventure Education programs and provide participants with hands-on practical experience to internalize their learning. The aim of the Train Outdoor Trainer (TOT) project is to enhance the quality and relevance of youth work practices within the partner consortium by equipping participants with necessary competencies and promoting active, adventure & nature-based, learner-oriented practices in youth work.

The first mobility took place in Georgia 24.05.24 – 01.06.24, and the second mobility will be here at Bakketun 23.09.24 – 30.09.24.
