EFPSA Train the Trainers Summer School’21 Call for Participants!

July 24, 2021 webmaster 0 Comments

The Train the Trainers Summer School is an amazing event characterised by knowledge, development, challenges, fun, and friendship! During this week, you will learn the basics to become a trainer, practice your skills, and take a step into the world of non-formal education.

What is non-formal education?

Romi & Schmida (2009) define non -formal education as “the assumption that educational and social goals can and should be realised through exercising flexibility in applying principles, subject matter, organisations, and tools, and that these should be free of the structural and formal conditions usually present in school. Non-formal education aims to enhance active social involvement for the benefit of the community, and to express the needs of individuals, especially those concerning leisure activities”.

What does this Train the Trainers event offer?

The Training Office of EFPSA delivers training sessions to prepare 16 lucky psychology students to become trainers. After the event, participants will become trainer candidates and in order to join the EFPSA Trainers Pool, you will be expected to have an EFPSA Trainer mentor and deliver 10 hours of training sessions. After it, you will be given the opportunity to deliver training sessions within and outside EFPSA.

The 12th edition of EFPSA’s Train the Trainers Summer School (TtT), which will take place between the 1st and the 9th of September 2021 in Belgium, offers you this opportunity!

Do not miss this opportunity to share a journey of a lifetime with other enthusiastic aspiring Trainers, while being guided and educated by 6 experienced EFPSA Trainers.
