Training of trainers - Slovakia

Training of Trainers was organized in connection with the first project meeting in Slovakia from 18 to 20 November 2019. 

Partners from four countries (Poland, Hungary, Romania, Croatia) participated in the training of trainers in service-learning. Alžbeta Brozmanova Gregorová (PDCO) led the training together with colleagues from Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica from Slovakia.


Training of trainers in service-learning allowed a learning experience that will be built into the training curricula as well as the guidebook. It is crucial that all partners have the same standard and knowledge thus contributing equally to the developments of the outputs. These learning experiences helped to prepare for testing the outputs as well. The training gave the possibility to the participants to increase knowledge and competencies in the creation and implementation of training in a specific approach - service-learning. The main aims of the training of trainers were the exchange of information on appropriate areas of training and development; the sharing of best practices. A forum for discussion has also organized at the end of the visit to summarize the learning points.
