Aims & objectives

The EGEA Training for New Trainers aims to encourage the members from EGEA and its partner organisations to become soft skills trainers.
So in this event, participants learn all they need to perform as trainers in the future. Nevertheless, this event is also a training event full of self-discovery and learning experiences!!

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The target group of this training was formed by youth from the following countries: Slovenia, Greece, Romania, Croatia, Belgium, Spain, Germany

Training methods used & main activities

Participants were encouraged to learn by doing, discussing with each other and discovering by themselves.
The first session of the event was team building and it was based on team building games. A safe environment was set from the beginning.
Another example can be the Activity and Game Design session, in which participants discovered how to design a game and designed one on their own.
During the Communication session, participants were also very active, having activities in which they needed to listen actively to the others and give feedback, as well as to use their body language, voice tone and, verbal communication.

4MAT was the method used to structure the whole training event and its sessions. In each session, participants were having active activities and games through which they were learning.

Outcomes of the activity

The training achieved a very nice outcome: once the event was over, participants expressed that they were highly motivated to start their activity as trainers as soon as possible!

The feedback received in the evaluation was also excellent.
