Doing trainings is a fascinating field, it creates fulfillment for you as a trainer and it can also be significant for others in their learning. Although the process itself is exciting and dynamic, it requires a lot of different skills, it can be overwhelming and it knows many pitfalls. Here we are offering youth workers the chance to bring their training skills to another level based on our experience.
This programme offers:
The training is designed for trainers working in the youth field who are already experienced in working with young groups, have their training method and understand the process of creating and delivering training.
We offer sport for 32 participants. This group size allows the close work with the main trainers and the small team of international assistant trainers.
The training aims to challenge the current working methods of the participant and to provide an answer to the following questions:
- Who am I as a trainer/youth worker?
- What are my unique qualities?
- In which direction do I want to develop my method?
There is a lot of hands-on work, demonstrations and reflection in small groups afterwards. In this training not only you can fine-tune yourself as a trainer, but also take ideas as a trainee. There are no marks or goals to achieve - everything you take out of this training is your choice.
What will you gain as a participant?
The vocal aspect of the training helped me to be aware of the power of my voice and I realized that is an important tool in my work as a trainer. The concrete feed-backs were very useful and having the opportunity to implement them on the spot, brought me a lot of insights I was not aware of before. Now I feel that I can use my voice in a more conscious way, which is a great support in creating the atmosphere I want for my participants.

The most valuable knowledge I gained was when working with the Winkelaar method. I now feel confident when creating training, because the process is clear to me. Next to this, now I have a better understanding on how to work for and together with a client. Lastly I now strongly feel the importance of context for participants in training courses. It has been a valuable training for me.
