EFPSA Train the Trainers Summer School (TtT) is an intense, unforgettable 8-day Event wherein 12 trainer candidates gain the knowledge, skills and the right attitude a novice trainer needs to design and deliver effective and engaging training sessions. The TtT is also the first step in becoming a certified EFPSA trainer.
The goal of the Event is for participants to interactively familiarise themselves with learning, education and training theories and techniques that enable them to successfully design and deliver training to EFPSA active members, their national psychology student associations and other organisations. They are provided with the opportunity to gain the right skills, knowledge and attitude necessary to become trainers in order to develop themselves and others, and to build strong interpersonal relationships in an international learning environment. As the highlight of the week, participants get to apply their freshly learned training skills during an Open Session Day where they deliver their very first trainings to local university students.
This year, the theme of TtT was “Be a Trainer – Combat Discrimination”. Therefore, topics related to reducing discrimination and creating an inclusive training environment were exploredthroughout the week.
TtT was implemented with the financial and educational support of European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
