ASC Carrier Seminars
During the ASC carrier seminars, the working time is at least six hours per day (or 8 learning units). Work is usually done in the mornings and afternoons, sometimes also in the evenings. During the free time there is the opportunity for creative or sports activities - sometimes under the guidance of ASC Göttingen's instructors and teamers or the volunteers themselves.
The volunteers actively participate in the content and implementation of the seminars (=> educational year). Each seminar is evaluated with the group members at the end of the week.
In addition to the work in the sites of operation, participation in educational opportunities is an essential part of voluntary services in sport (FWD). The law requires a total of 25 seminar days for a 12-month FWD. If an FWD of more than 12 months is completed, the number of seminar days increases by at least one day per additional FWD month. The number of seminar days to be completed must be completed and submitted one month before the end of service.
You will find the concrete number of your seminar days in your contract or in our monthly newsletter (via e-mail).
Participation in the seminar is considered working time and is compulsory. Vacation must be planned outside of the seminar hours.
For all volunteers 15 seminar days are organized and financed by the ASC Göttingen. These are divided into an introductory, an intermediate and a final seminar (5 days each). During the introductory and intermediate seminars, the basic and advanced courses of a trainer or Trainer C training are often held. A link to a sample schedule for these two weeks and an overview of the possible license trainings can be found below.
In addition to the introductory, intermediate and final seminar, one week of political education is an obligatory part of the FWD for BFD'ler. In the FSJ a total of 10 freely selectable seminar days must be planned.
Your freely selectable seminar days
Freely selectable seminar days are to be planned together with your place of work. The 5-10 free seminar days can best be used to complete the started (professional) license. The foundation stone for all licenses is usually laid with the first two carrier seminars (introductory and 1st intermediate seminar). Within this framework, a valid first aid certificate (not older than 2 years) is required at the time of application. A first aid course can be taken as a free seminar day.
Free seminar days must be planned according to the interests of the volunteer in accordance with the place of assignment. Seminar days are working days means that for seminars on weekends or in addition to the weekly working hours, a corresponding time balance must be agreed with the place of work. All seminars that are officially advertised by (external) educational institutions are possible here (for an overview see seminar offers) and are confirmed with a certificate of participation.
To be recognized:
Only whole seminar days within the scope of 6 learning units (LE) or at least 4.5 hours. A LE comprises 45 minutes.
calendar day before the course units: No more than one seminar day can be completed on one calendar day.
A copy of the certificates of attendance of free seminar days not conducted by the sponsor must be sent to the ASC as soon as possible (Seminare@fwd-sport.de or by post).
In case of uncertainties regarding the recognition of a planned free seminar day, we are available for consultation by telephone or e-mail.
The 15 days of seminars, which are run by the executing agency, are free of charge for the volunteers and the sites of operation. The Political Education seminar is also free of charge. The seminar days, which can be chosen freely, are to be planned jointly by the sites of operation and volunteers and financed by the sites of operation.
If volunteers are unable to attend the seminar due to illness, a short notice (certificate of incapacity) must be sent to the ASC by telephone and in writing on the first day of the seminar.
In this case the seminar days will be considered "excused attendance". We recommend that the participants make up for the missed content. This would be necessary in any case for a desired license agreement.
In the event of illness outside of the seminar times, the originals of the sick certificates should also be sent to the ASC Göttingen via the place of assignment.
