Training of Trainers (Horn of Africa)

Develop the competencies to design and deliver effective training, focusing on the online environment.

This introductory Training of Trainers course aims to develop the competencies needed to deliver training across the sector using participatory methodologies. You will apply your learning from the course to plan, prepare and deliver your own short training session, receiving feedback from experienced trainers and your peers. This online 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.

This course is composed of six live sessions, with individual and small group work assigned between each session. The facilitator will be available to provide support to students in between sessions via email.
