SUPS Barcelona 2017

The training activity took place
in Barcelona, Spain
organised by AEGEE-Barcelona, SUCT
16th to 19th of November, 2017

Aims & objectives

Summer University is the flagship project of AEGEE.
SUPS (Summer University Project School) aims at training Summer University organizers/coordinators on team management, group dynamics, logistics and financial management, fundraising, communication. Since the scope is so wide and the time so limited, 12+ working hours a day are actually happening.

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

The trainers team was composed of me and 3 more trainers from Slovakia, Ukraine and Italy. We had 18 trainees, coming from every corner of Europe.

Training methods used & main activities

Brainstorming, roleplay and simulations were the main training methods. In particular, we run a 4 hours long simulation of the whole organizational process, with the teams going through the process of organizing a whole Summer University in a real location.

Outcomes of the activity

The participants received a deep insight on the organizational and management processes. The main sign of success was that every person who wanted to perform a specific role in their Summer University at the beginning of the course was afraid of undertaking it after the course, while people who didn't have specific aims were interested in experiencing an organizational position at the end of the training.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I contributed to develop the structure on the training together with the Project Coordinator and the other trainers, I delivered specific sessions and helped out the other trainers when needed, I carried out evaluation activities and accompanied the whole group from the introductory session to the goodbies. The trainer team was all resident, so everyone shared the workload equally.

I worked on this training for 4 days as a full time trainer.
