In order to be considered as a candidate for a Train the Trainers (TTT) workshop, participants must be nominated by their Member Society, which must be a member of WGO. Regrettably WGO cannot accept direct applications from individuals. To find out if your Member Society is a member of WGO, please visit the WGO membership section.
The following procedure is applied in the selection and acceptance of participants for each course:
Apart from four full days of work, time is set aside for the participants to get to know each other, exchange experiences and knowledge, and forge friendships. The interaction between the faculty and participants is as important during the lectures as it is during the social events.
All aspects of the course are subject to intensive, rigorous, and continuous assessment and are refined accordingly on an ongoing basis. In accepting to attend the workshop, participants fully commit to providing their responses to pre-workshop, onsite, and post-workshop evaluations. This information is then collated, analyzed, and prepared for publication in education and training journals.
