From 11th to 18th of March one of our penguins – Olga had a chance to be part of Training of Trainers organised by Fundació Catalunya Voluntária-FCV in Vilanova i la Geltrú, Spain supported by the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
Applying for this project was like one of those things you think will never happen, just started working around topics connected with conflicts, not knowing well the idea of this TOT, so many applied.. but it happened and it was one of those important days that will give great input and live mark in the professional life of a trainer.
The specific objectives of this Training of Trainers were:
1. To enhance the competences of young people in training delivery and facilitation of culturally-sensitive conflict transformation trainings – checked
2. To develop participants’ competences in designing, planning, monitoring and evaluating quality training activities, guided by a competence framework as a tool – double checked
3. To raise participants’ awareness about the importance of cultural diversity and context in conflict settings – checked (with pain sometimes)
4. To develop participants’ multiplying skills by preparing and motivating them to run trainings and workshops – already working on it
After some days of processing and translating to the reality many ideas connected with peace building and transforming the conflict, we will update you in the follow up activities, because that is all about right? learn and share, learn and share… 🙂
