Product Type teaching material
This Guidebook for social circus trainers is aimed at providing the social circus
sector with a 20-day training programme for social circus trainers.It is the result of 2 major European projects submitted under the Life Long Learning Programme of the European Commission and led by Caravan along with its members and in partnership with the Université Libre de Bruxelles and University catholique de Louvain.
The 1st European project took place from 2009 to 2011 under the Leonardo Da Vinci - Partnership programme. This 2-year research in the field of social circus developed a proper bottom-up methodology based on field analyses, which enabled to bring up the specific competences a social circus trainer needs to acquire. It resulted to the creation of the framework of competences for social circus trainers and the definition of social circus.
Based on the results of the Partnership project,the aim is to create the first 20-day European training programme for social circus trainers. Respecting a tight schedule and supervised by a pedagogical team of experts led by the Professor Emeritus Léopold Paquay (UCL), this TOI project is a great success! It has been prepared, tested and evaluated in 8 European countries.
The Guidebook for social circus trainers is more specifically the outcome of this second European project “Circus Trans Formation”.
