Training of Trainers (Sudan)

Date: 21 - 23 Mar 2017
Length: 3 days
Location: Khartoum, Sudan
Residential: No

About the course:

It has been said that “good teachers produce good students.” It is equally true that good trainers produce good aid workers. By passing on their wisdom and experiences through effective training techniques, humanitarian aid workers can extend the impact of their work to future projects and generations. Trainers in the humanitarian sector ensure aid workers are equipped with the skills and knowledge they require to deliver successful humanitarian programmes.

This three-day course combines theory and practice to help you understand the fundamentals of training and facilitation and develop competencies to aid you in becoming a more effective trainer.
You will learn from experience, observation, and feedback in highly participatory activities. The skills you learn during the course will immediately be put into practice and developed as you plan and deliver your own short training sessions.
