AEPOR’s Training of Trainers Comes to an End



29 October 2014

Today marks the end of the Training of Trainers (ToT) workshops in the four target areas of the Adult Education for Poverty Reduction (AEPOR) project, targeting 48 participants from the local community, most of them being unemployed university graduates with specific content knowledge in relevant fields to become Certified Development Trainers.


Throughout the 8-day interactive training, the participants learned about the many factors affecting the trainings' environment including the various personality traits of the trainees, and how to overcome any obstacles or deal with any nuisances that may come their way. Participants were also able to learn the differences between main and procedural training goals, then devising their own lesson plans. "Training individuals in order to empower them" was one participant's personal goal for becoming a trainer. Another would like to focus on "empowering teenagers' personalities and building stronger characters".



SWOT analysis, forms of trainings, and the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of trainings are all topics that were discussed comprehensively during the ToT. With continual guidance from the trainer and collective group work between the participants, the progress which they have made from the beginning of the training has become evident to the project team.

Furthermore, these trainers will undergo another 2-day training on how to train using the developed curricula in the four fields; green jobs, vocational trainings, life skills and small businesses.



This project is co-funded by the European Union.
