A Training of Trainers in Mazar i Sharif for Coaches and SIYB Trainers
As part of the “Promotion for Rural Youth Employment in Afghanistan”, the newly certified SIYB Trainers and Coaches have attended a 3-day workshop on training methodologies in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, on 26 – 28 March 2018.
The three-day workshop enabled participants to experiment with active learning methodologies and to improve their pedagogical skills.
In addition to presentation and facilitation tips and techniques, the course covered a wide range of topics that included when and how to conduct training needs analysis, how to identify the preferred learning style of your audience to make your intervention more learner-oriented, how to design a training intervention and how to validate and evaluate your learning.
During the Training of Trainers in Mazar, participants had the opportunity to actively experiment the techniques presented and to receive meaningful feedback from the lead facilitators and from their peers. They discussed the best ways to design training for adults, and identified the best approaches for managing difficult groups so that all participants can benefit from a learning intervention. At the end of the workshop, each participant – and future trainer – developed a personal action plan to transfer their learning to their everyday work.
The workshop took place within the UNAMA compound in Mazar-i-Sharif and was made possible thanks to the precious support of ILO Kabul and ILO Road to Jobs project, based in Mazar-i-Sharif.
