Who is it for?

Language proficiency
This Erasmus Plus training course is most suitable for participants with at least an A2 level of English proficiency. All course materials will be presented in English.

Our course methodology prioritizes active participation and optimal learning experiences, emphasizing:

Theoretical work If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.

Practical work Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.

Coaching Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.

Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening with Saturday being optional for enjoying cultural activities. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
