Common principles for NA network TCs

  • NA Network TCs can be co-ordinated by NAs or by SALTOs, they should be organized on behalf of the whole network. Workload can be delegated to external assistance.

  • Because of the eligible TCA criteria, the coordinator should guarantee that at least 2 countries will be involved in the courses.

  • To receive the status of a NA Network TC, there should be a pilot phase to develop an approved training concept to which many NAs want to send many participants.

  • There should be a public information pack available online which all NAs can access to understand the need and target audience.

  • The call for NAs to express needs to send participants / host courses should be made in time before the annual TCA Meetings of the NAs and available to all NAs well in time before the submission date of TCA. The TCA Meetings should offer NAs the possibility to express interest.

  • NAs should regularly host a NA network TC.

  • Each NA Network TC should have a qualified pool of trainers to ensure that the needed number of courses per year can be implemented and a certain common quality standard is kept in the delivery.

  • Criteria to recruit new trainers should be transparent but can be different between the different NA Network TCs.

  • An annual meeting of the trainer pool/group to evaluate and develop the NA Network TC should be an instrument to develop the course concept and to allow coherent delivery of the courses by different trainers of the pool.
