2nd edition of Train-the-Trainer workshop series on EU association
In the framework of the Civic School for Sound EU Practice (CiSEP), the IEP has been conducting Train-The-Trainer workshops for representatives of the Ukrainian civil society to become trainers on EU association. The participants are CiSEP alumni of previous CiSEP basic and specialisation trainings on EU association. From September 2019 till March 2020, the participants attend four workshops of three-day length each in Chernihiv and Dnipro. These trainings empower them with in-depth knowledge about the EU-Ukraine association process, as well as the practical skill-set to operate as multipliers with their own interactive trainings on EU association in the future.
Didactically, the training series focuses on conveying interactive training approaches to optimise the participants’ learning process. As regards content, the emphasis of the two workshops was to deepen participants’ knowledge on the EU-Ukraine association process and to elaborate helpful training methods and plans, including training materials. The future trainers learnt how to identify various learning types and audiences, as well as how to incorporate them into audience-specific trainings. This conceptual work was supplemented by practical exercises on trainers’ interaction skills with the training audience. The two remaining workshops will aim to strengthen participants’ presentation, visualisation and evaluation skills.
Besides the workshop participation, this training programme also foresees that the future trainers gradually elaborate and prepare their own trainings. The IEP supports them in this process with personal feedback. In order to successfully pass the training programme, the participants will realise their own trainings.
