Call for EFPSA’s Train Advanced Trainers (TAT) Trainers’ Team Coordinator

Categories:News

Attention all trainers!

We are happy to announce that the fifth edition of EFPSA’s Train Advanced Trainers (TAT) will take place in Cyprus. This year trainers from all over Europe will meet in Cyprus to be trained to train. Before that… we are looking for a TAT Trainers’ Team Coordinator – a person who will lead the trainers during this wonderful event!

What is TAT?

The EFPSA Train Advanced Trainers is a 8-day Event that gives a chance to European trainers from various NGOs who focus on youth work, to develop and practice new training techniques using a comprehensive toolkit in a low risk environment.

The general aim of the TAT is to aid youth trainers in their goal for continuous development by providing second level education. This year the topic is: “The Power of Empathy”.

This is a fantastic opportunity for youth trainers, along with professionals, to deepen their knowledge, provide motivational, memorable and dynamic courses and receive feedback from other professionals in the field of training. Its high standards provide a safe space to practice, learn and get inspired. During TAT the participants will have contact with experienced trainers from all over Europe, they will get access to the newest training theories and techniques, and will work on their identity as professional trainers.
