As Intercultural Learning and Global Education are the core of our business, “high-level” trainings addressing these issues and how they translate into the way we run our programmes, are essential.

The next Training for Trainers: Training for Trainers ‘Reach out to enrich‘ will take place in November 2017 in Ireland, with the support of EYF. Read more here.

Applications for the training this year are open until 3 September. Contact your national AFS organisation for more information and to apply.

Training for Trainers “Who needs intercultural education?”
Dworp, Belgium, 7-16 November 2016

16 participants and 5 trainers from 16 different countries met in the yearly training for trainers, this time daring to look outside the usual AFS training circles. The starting point was a discussion of the competence and readiness of AFS trainers to address audiences outside the mobility context, and the relevance and necessity to do so. Next to sessions on basic trainer competences, the participants reflected on which new target groups can be approached, which specific learning needs they have and how we can use our AFS background when we work with external groups. After several days of training the participants prepared for a “practice training event” with different external groups such as: scouts, young Muslim girls, high school students, refugees and expatriates following an integration course in Belgium.

The project was organised within the Building Peaceful Societies 2016 Annual Theme.
