European Trade Union Institute, ETUI.

Priority 6: Capacity building


The training of Eurotrainers is designed to develop the individual teaching skills of trainers from members organisations, as an investment in the future of the teaching strategies of their organisations. This training aims to extend the scope of the learning programmes beyond the national level and to give them a European dimension, putting the priority on a European trade union identity. It covers many different aspects liked to multicultural and transnational environments and links them to the training design process and pedagogical methods we apply at the European level.
