Online preparation

Part of the course is an online preparatory phase. Before the residential training course, there is a mandatory online preparatory/introductory phase. Its aims to introduce basic information in order to establish common grounds, as well as provide  a place where participants will start to form a community of learners and will carry out first homeworks and assessments of their own organisation, local community and own needs.


The concept of the TOSCA is based on the experience of the network of National Agencies and established by a pool of trainers with the support of European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre and SALTO Training & Cooperation.
