Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was full time trainer together with the other colleagues contributing to preparation, facilitation of several sessions, evaluation . The programme was designed a a collective work of the pool of Evs trainers in Euromed which took place in April 2014 in Amman. This programme was then adapted to the reality of Palestine and to concrete participants needs.

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