Call for a Virtual Regional Training for Trainers on Intercultural Citizenship Education
In the framework of the Anna Lindh Foundation Intercultural Learning and Cities Programme aiming to prepare people of the region to live and be active within multi-cultural societies, and due to the Covid19 restrictions for face-to-face training activities, the Anna Lindh Foundation is organising the first Virtual Regional Training for Trainers on Intercultural Citizenship Education in the Euro-Mediterranean region (29 May - 26 June 2021).
The training is addressed to educators in the formal and non-formal education sector and is based on the capacity building methodology on intercultural dialogue developed by a team of experts coordinated by the Anna Lindh Foundation having as a main educational reference the Anna Lindh Foundation Education Handbook on Intercultural Citizenship in the Euro-Med region.
The training will be carried out in English to ensure participants have a common language for participating in all the interactive sessions.
The training will be held virtually and will last for 6 sessions, scheduled from 29 May to 26 June 2021. The 6 live training sessions will be held every Saturday from 10:00 to 13:00 (CET). In addition, weekly offline groups and/or individual 2- hour sessions among trainers and educators will be held at the participants’ pace. A final evaluation and follow-up session will be scheduled during the last week of September 2021 and is considered an integral part of the Training.
Following the virtual training, educators should commit to implementing a training activity based on the Regional ToT in their respective communities and networks and will be accompanied in this process through a mentorship scheme coordinated by the Anna Lindh Foundation. The training activity by each trained educator is to be implemented between 20 June and 10 July 2021.
For the selection of educators to attend the Virtual ToT, we would like to hereby invite you to send your application before 06 May 2021 at 17h (Egypt time) to the following address firstname.lastname@example.org with copy to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
