Steps Ahead Further Training Seminar Rotterdam
Show all details...

What at first hand seemed to be a simple thumb wrestling match, turned out to be a great method to deal with groups. Afterwards, Aikido teacher Jan van Buren explained how this method could be implemented to motivate participants, to help with communication and to take away possible feelings of resistance.

Steps Ahead is a new project of ROOTS & ROUTES in Germany, Hungary, Greece, Italy and The Netherlands. It is a follow up to R&R academy, where young people were trained to become coaches. In the Further Training Seminars young dancers, media makers and musicians are guided in their further professional development as coaches. A lot of emphases is put on business-, marketing- and project management skills but didactic skills and personal growth were also an important part of the program.

The first workshop weekend was organised end of May in the World Music and Dance centre. Different guest lectors, among which musician Alvin Lewis and director Peggy van Steenvoorden, shared their experiences with the group. The participants were given different tools and inspirational talks, from peaceful Aikido tricks and tips about working with group to writing business plans.

In July the Further Training Seminar continued with a 8-day training. The program had various topics and several guest teachers, with the personal and professional development of the participants as main focus. Every morning started with a warming up by the participants. Wouter Muste from Albeda College gave workshops on didactics, the Chamber of Commerce explained how to start your own business as a freelancer. Other workshops gave insight in making budgets, writing project plans, marketing and PR, project management etc. Finally, the participants went on a Entrepreneur Tour through Rotterdam, getting inspiration from other young entrepreneurs.

Steps Ahead makes sure that young people take steps forward, not only as a coach but also to be able to make their dreams a reality.
