Skilled crafts is lifelong learning. I like it!

Train the Trainer

Skilled workers who deal with apprentices every day have a great responsibility for the transfer of knowledge and therefore play a major role in the education system. “Train the Trainer” teaches the needed pedagogical competences that are necessary for the everyday work with learners. The workshop is designed for skilled workers, who are working together with apprentices and want to transfer their theoretical and practical know-how to them. It is a general workshop for all kind of trades. Depending on the home country of the participants, the contents may vary slightly.
