GIZ-VTN project organized the 3 days Training of Trainers (ToT) for selected satellite center trainers from the Northern and Eastern Provinces. The training was conducted in Vavuniya from 12th – 14th November 2015. The objective of the training program is to upgrade the trainer’s competencies on gender, diversity and social sensitivity to ensure that their roles are effectively enacted inline to the special social context of the respective satellite centers identified by the project.
The ToT was to build the conceptual knowledge of the participants on gender and to provide necessary skills on conducting similar sessions to the students of vocational training institutes. The project used the opportunity to review and used the draft gender module. The trainers are expected to carry out similar sessions and create dialogues within their institutes especially with the vocational trainees in their respective vocational training institutions. The expected impact of the ToT was not limited at professional level but also expected to have an impact in trainer’s personal life.
