Training of Trainers 2015

In June 2015 a training of trainers under the title “Change is a chance! Upgrade your skills and help Europe(ans) grow!” was organised in co-operation with the International Secretariat of SCI. 25 activists and youth workers from 13 countries got the opportunity to be introduced to the different aspects of training and to practise their trainers’ skills. The project aimed to improve the quality of international volunteer and youth activities by providing youth workers with the know-how on the essentials of training designing and running. The project participants learned, among others, how to assess and address others’ learning needs, design exciting and effective training sessions, prepare training materials, adjust training style to diverse learning styles, use a variety of methods, facilitate group discussions, create positive group dynamics, effectively manage challenging participants, and evaluate their trainings.
