Train-The-Trainer Programme 2015/2017
CARe Europe is initiating a new train-the-trainer programme in the CARe Model. This model contains a practical way of supporting persons with psychosocial vulnerability in their recovery process, to live as full citizens in the community.
The programme aims at creating more training and coaching capacity in a number of countries by educating and supporting new CARe Trainers who will work with us in the future.
The programme will take 3 semesters. In the first semester, starting February 2015, the student will follow an e-learning programme about the principles, theory and working methods of the CARe model. This semester will be ended with a face to face training session and seminar in Prague, Czech Republic in June 2015.
The second semester includes practice and personal experience between September and December 2015. During this semester, the student will apply the knowledge in his own country, working with clients and professionals. Supervision is provided through Skype and e-mail. In the third semester (February-June 2016), the student will design and deliver a training programme to a group of people, under supervision of one of the CARe trainers.
The costs of this programme are Euro 2.000 per person that can be paid in three different modes. In case the candidate or his employer is not able to pay the full amount, subsidy can be given from the CARe Europe Education Programme and you can also apply for travel and accommodation costs for our face-to-face Seminar in Prague. For the details see our CARe Europe Scholarship programme.
Candidates should meet the following criteria:
* Having at least three years of professional and/or personal experience in the field of mental health care, addiction care or care for the homeless.
* Having a strong motivation to work on the basis of the principles of recovery and social inclusion
* Having experience as a trainer, coach or leader of services
* Having a strong motivation to become a trainer/coach in the CARe Model
* Being willing after finishing the programme, to act as a certified CARe Trainer in the own country or other countries in the CARe Europe network for at least three years.
Candidates should write a letter of motivation and send this, together with a recommendation by your country representative to Dirk den Hollander (Head of Training CARe Model), preferably before 25th January 2015 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
