Description des formations

The sports instructor’s approach: Éductraineur™ (6 hours)

During this course, you will learn about four approaches identified to maximize your impact with the people with whom you work. The importance of a connection based on equality between the instructor and the participant, the context and the use of humour will be discussed.

The skills of sports instructors: Éductraineur™ (6 hours)

Instructors make use of different aspects of their personalities depending on the context and the people with whom they work. This course, which is based on the Persona Masks Method© developed by the PACE group, will allow you to explore your strengths in order to learn how to use them in different contexts.

Leading a game using a psychosocial approach—Part 1 (6 hours)

During this course, instructors will work on techniques used to lead games, which promote the implementation of effective pedagogy focused on the psychosocial development of participants and the group through sports. We will address many issues such as how to create the right conditions for participants, make a game dynamic, and vary intensities throughout a game or activity to achieve the objectives that had been set.

Leading a game using a psychosocial approach—Part 2 (6 hours)

In this module, which is mandatory for those who want to obtain Éductraineur™ certification, you will lead games throughout the day. You will be filmed, and group feedback will be provided to optimize your practices.

Creating/adapting a game—Part 1 (6 hours)

During this course, instructors will learn to coordinate the various aspects needed to set up a game or a sports activity using a psychosocial approach, in order to ensure that pedagogical objectives are achieved. You will also learn techniques to turn sports into a metaphor for everyday life.

Creating/adapting a game—Part 2 (6 hours)

In this module, which is mandatory for those who want to obtain Éductraineur™ certification, you will invent or adapt games throughout the day and then lead them. You will be filmed, and group feedback will be provided to optimize your practices.

Developing a sports project (7 hours)

During this course, you will explore the various elements that need to be implemented in order to carry out an outdoor sports project using a psychosocial approach. We will discuss institutional issues, participant recruitment, complementary interventions, as well as the 12 drivers of psychosocial action.

Organizing and supervising a sports adventure (7 hours)

It takes a lot of effort not only to prepare a group for a sports challenge or adventure, but also to then supervise it! In this module, we will provide you with guidelines to ensure that you optimize the conditions in which your participants can challenge themselves, by finding the right balance between safety and taking risks. The importance of rites of passage will also be discussed.

Outdoor adventure (1 night)

This “initiation” activity aims to provide you with an experience that you can use when working with people. After this outdoor outing, you will be invited to write a short text about how you felt during the adventure.
