Trainers Qualification Event 2019

Trainers Qualification Event 2019

We would hereby like to invite you to apply for the upcoming IFLRY Trainers Qualification Event in Vilnius Region, Lithuania. The event will take place in Vilnius Region between the 1st and 3rd of March 2019 and will be hosted in co-operation with our Belarusian Member Organization “Civil Forum”. We would like to extend our gratitude to the D66 Party of the Netherlands as the sponsor for this event.

IFLRY is organizing a Trainers Qualification Event with D66 and Civil Forum that is directly targeted at qualifying Belarusian young people to act as trainers within and outside of their respective political and civil-society organizations. The event is specifically planned for prospective trainers that will be selected by the IFLRY Belarus and Ukraine Programme. The general idea of the event is to give the selected perspective trainers a crash-course in the role and tasks of a trainer in the environment of political and civil-society organizations. Leading to the event the participants will already receive educational material and specific tasks to help them prepare for their role as a trainer. Specific learning goals of the event include the following:

  • To give prospective trainers concise input on the role of a trainer, his mission and the practical tools needed,
  • To enable the participants to plan, organize and manage their own trainings within and outside of their respective organizations,
  • To qualify the prospective trainers to use methods of non-formal education in their trainings and events,
  • To enable the participants to pass on the learned to other members of their organization,
  • To create a pool of qualified trainers for IFLRY’s activities in Belarus that the organization can rely on for the organization of future events,
  • To increase Belarusian ownership in the IFLRY Belarus and Ukraine Programme.

Participants for the event will be recruited among activists of our partner organizations in Ukraine as well as from individual liberal-minded contacts in the country. An emphasis will be on prospective trainers that have already visited IFLRY’s event and showed interest in organizing their own trainings and educational events within or outside of their organizations.

As usual the event is following a strong participatory design- and approach and focuses on teaching specific methods of non-formal education in combination with a lot of practical examples and best-practice.

The call is open until the 10th of February 2018.
