Flexible training in the most appropriate and convenient form
ITC-ILO experts will train trainers from UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, from 4 to 9 October 2010 in Gaza.
Competency-based training emphasizes what people can do as a result of training, and how easily they can adapt to evolving requirements in their job.
The rapidly changing context in which training institutions and their trainers operate, and the changing profile of participants, has obliged organizations to rethink or redesign their training programmes, including training of trainers.
The workshop will consist of an initial face-to-face workshop in Gaza for about 20 trainers from UNRWA, run by two ITC-ILO facilitators, followed by a two-week online activity during which participants will get expert advice on implementing their action plans and other follow-up.
This workshop is for people involved in all steps of training programmes, as well as in the design and development of learning and training material. It aims to improve the performance of public and private institutions’ training staff in a variety of contexts. It will follow the Turin Learning Approach.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed:
- an ability to use concepts in the learning management cycle to devise and design participatory competency-based training;
- an ability to design competency-based training modules;
- an individual plan to apply and follow up what they have learned;
- the ability to choose among a broad spectrum of options and techniques when designing and running training activities.
Impressions and lessons learned about the methodology and technology used in this workshop will be posted on the Centre’s L&T blog: www.itcilo.wordpress.com.
