This badge is a reflection tool for the first day of our training.
It is based on the work we have done together to:
- Build and form the training group
- Understand the structure of the course we are working on
- Explore how the Mercedes Model works for us to change our own state and that of the young people we work with for the better.
L1.1:Awareness of and confidence in one’s own and others’ abilities to learn, improve and achieve with work and dedication,
L3.1: Awareness of one’s own learning interests, processes and preferred strategies, including learning needs and required support,
L3.2: Planning and implementing learning goals, strategies, resources and processes,
P1.1: Awareness and expression of personal emotions, thoughts, values, and behaviour,
S1.1: Awareness of another person’s emotions, experiences and values and
S2.2: Understanding and managing interactions and conversations in different socio-cultural contexts and domain-specific situations.
The holder of the badge will have worked either on their own or in a small group to reflect on the questions:
- how the day has gone
- what has been learned
- how to use this in your youth work
- how else to use it.
The questions are designed to optimise generative learning: they are not just about what the participant has learnt but also how they can use the learning in their work and personal life.
