We invite universities to send two or ideally three staff members to become SUCTI trainers. After going through the Train the Trainers week, they will be able to deliver the training course back in their institution to peer administrative staff.
It is of course possible to send only one staff member, but our experience shows that it is more difficult to organise the in-house course afterwards if the preparation and delivery of the course depends only on one person, as this person will need to take all necessary organisational steps at their own institution, have to deal with the preparation, translation and adaptation of materials if needed, and finally the delivery of such a course.
For the peer learning and the empowerment effect, it is important that the person who will become a SUCTI Trainer is a member of the administrative staff.
All participants must attend all sessions of the Train the Trainers course from the beginning to the very end in order to receive the Certificate of Attendance.
All participants will have to make a short presentation at the end of the course.
The profile of the ideal SUCTI trainer is:
- - Communicative: The SUCTI Trainer must have good communication skills, willingness to train a group of peers and motivation to go through this process.
- - Fun: The overall methodology for the SUCTI course is participatory and interactive. It has to be fun for people to learn and therefore, training should also be fun for the trainer him/herself!
- - Interested and with some degree of experience in internationalisation: Working in international relations, having had a mobility experience abroad or being interested in matters related to internationalisation is a must.
- - English skills: A minimum level of English is required to be able to follow and actively participate in the training. Recommended level: B2.
- - Willing to learn: Willing to learn during the Train the Trainers course, but also from the groups that the newly formed trainer will train afterwards. Training is a great way to learn from participants as they possess a great deal of knowledge and concerns worth listening to!
