Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I followed the project application and the communication with partner, in the first cooperative designing of the proposal. Then I designed the workshop with the other trainers, choosing activities from Salto or inventing some, as the topic is quite new. I also helped in the evaluation of the team, organization of the training and final report.

I worked on this training for 7 days as a full time trainer.
