Great article from our colleagues! Enjoy reading!
* Characters, institutions, places, events, incidents and Trainers are either the products of the authors’ imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual Trainers, living or dead is purely coincidental.
The two writers of this ‘insider view’ are trainers in the European youth field. We were working together some time ago and talking about our lives as trainers, about various colleagues, and our experiences of working with them. As we talked we started to realise numerous trends appearing in our discussion. Many of our colleagues are a little eccentric, maybe even a little strange at times with particular habits and rituals. Much of the time this eccentricity or strangeness is similar or the same among many of us. Through discussions between us and with other colleagues over the last months, we realised that a larger ‘we’ has developed, or perhaps become, our own culture; the culture of ‘Trainer in the European youth work field’! See what you think!
