“A Coaching Programme for Youth in Fragile Settings: a Training of Coaches” has opened today in New Delhi. At the opening ceremony, participants were welcomed by Dr Sher Verick, ILO Country Office Deputy Director.

The programme is composed of a face-to-face workshop which runs from 9 to 12 May 2017 and which will be followed by a distance learning component, then by a second face-to-face component in November 2017. Both workshops will take place in India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, thanks to the precious support of the ILO India Country Office and Decent Work Country Team. The contents and training materials for the programme were developed by the ITCILO and the Development Alchemists.

During this first phase, the thirteen participants will become acquainted with the basic concepts and definitions of what coaching is (and what it isn’t), they will practice using key coaching¬†tools, and they will learn approaches to the most common challenges faced by young entrepreneurs in a fragile context. The methodology used in the workshop, in line with the “Turin approach”, is highly interactive and participatory: in addition to content-intensive sessions, the programme also integrates a number of hands-on exercises and coaching practice which can equip participants with the right tools to¬†help them establish their own coaching experience.
