European program for basic circus training
CATE PROJECT – European program for a basic circus trainer
Assisted by an EU Grundtvig Grant, and in cooperation with the European Youth Circus Organisation (EYCO) 10 European youth circuses created the project CATE – Circus Adults Training in Europe Click here if you want to find out why and how.
On this page you will find also the people who took part in the first CATE course, organized as part of the PEYC project. They now have the experience of going through this program and could assist you setting up a CATE course in your country.
Starting point were the job level descriptions developed by an EYCO working group. Based on these descriptions the choice was made to focus the training program on the basic level. The next step was to clearly define the competencies of a basic circus trainer. Talking through teaching manners, pedagogical methods and sharing experience within small working groups, it became clear that there were many possible ways of nurturing a learner towards gaining these competencies.
It became clear that to create a trainer program format suitable to the needs of every European country was difficult, and that trainers should be able to tailor the program to fit their particular needs.
Therefore two different formats were developed:
A ready-made day-to-day program – CATE Handbook starting at page 17
a modular program – CATE Handbook starting at page 33
Meet the CATE-experts, ready to bring CATE to your youth circus!
