Training for Trainers
Training for Trainers is a 7-day international course for trainers experienced in the youth field and it’s build upon 4 elements: provocative training, unique method of training design, somatic aspects of trainership and contextual learning.
Training for trainers is a 7-day training course organised by Olde Vechte Foundation, a training center with a long history in non-formal education, coaching, personal development, social and cultural work since 1966.
<< WATCH OUT! The training is for experienced trainers in the youth field, it is designed for those who already are experienced in working with groups of young people, have their training method and understand the progress of creating and delivering a training. >>
We offer spots for 24 participants. This group size allows the close work with the main trainers and the small team of international assistant trainers.
The training aims to challenge the current working methods of the participant and to provide answers to the following questions:
- Who am I as a trainer/youth worker?
- What are my unique qualities?
- In which direction do I want to develop my method?
<< THE 4 ELEMENTS OF THE TRAINING >>
- PROVOCATIVE TRAINING
With love, humour and challenge, we offer a setting where you can go beyond your regular practice and see how you can shape your own distinctive training method.
- UNIQUE METHOD FOR TRAINING DESIGN
Discover ways to develop and facilitate a training on many subjects based on your own structured method. This will speed up your behaviour change as a trainer and will explore how ready you are to drop your training plan and to create a dynamic and engaging program for young people on the spot.
- SOMATIC ASPECTS ON TRAINERSHIP
Every part of the training is infused with embodied exercises so you explore and develop
an effective embodied training behavior.
- CONTEXTUAL LEARNING
A context is created by multiple elements and it directs the meaning and the outcome of the training. By guiding the context, you will be able to create and use intentionally the elements of your training in order to move towards your goals. Therefore your role is to stimulate.
