What is a TOT certificate?

Training of Trainers course targets newcomer trainers who wish to work internationally and focuses on all areas of the ETS Trainers Competency Model.

The main objective is to train trainers who are motivated to participate in the continuous improvement of the quality of projects under the program.

Core competencies as an education Trainer

Within the Training of Trainers “TOT” course, participants have the opportunity to develop their competencies as trainers. In line with the European Training Strategy, ToT considers the following competencies essential when working as a non-formal education trainer:

  • More understanding of individual and group learning processes.
  • Design educational programs.
  • Direct Personal Learning (Learning to Learn)
  • Co-operate successfully in teams
  • Communicate purposefully with others
  • intercultural competence
  • civically engagement

Participants enter the Train-of-Trainer course from various levels of prior experience and bring with them a range of competencies – thus, their learning needs vary. The didactic approach applied in the TOT course aims to allow identification and follow-up of these different learning needs.

At the core of the process is the participant’s competence to guide his/her learning. The group as a source of peer learning and trainers as facilitators of these learning processes are fundamental pillars of this approach.
