Training For Trainers
A pilot group guided by View from Here, supported by Cemea del Mezzogiorno and Pistes Solidaires, will create a specific format dedicated to the preparation of trainers/advisors who, in different countries, will locally follow 20 seniors participating in the training course, that will take them through the re-discovery and growing of their competences and in the creation of their own E-portfolio. Community Action Dacorum will be in charge of the evaluation and internal feedback that will contribute to the creation of the definitive version of the format. On the basis of the research previously elaborated on the background context of Senior Plus project, a training programme model will be elaborated. This model will identify the areas of intervention of the trainers/advisors and their profile, needed to accompany and to interact with seniors in the process of creating their E-Portfolio. Before the format becomes definitive, it will be tested at an international level with trainers/advisors sent by the different members of the partnership in July 2016 in Rome. They will contribute to validate it and integrate it, if possible, with their own experience. The document describing the definitive training format for advisors will also have a support toolkit, that can associate some suggested activities to the different areas of intervention for the advisors. As methodological tool for specialized personnel, it will be issued in English in order to maintain one unique linguistic reference glossary that will facilitate understanding, mutual exchange of practices and possible evolutions. After the end of the project, the document and the toolkit will represent the guidelines for training of trainers activities at local level, qualifying professionals to implement Senior Plus’ method.
