Super T - Advanced training of trainers

Tuesday, June 16, 2009 - 20:42 to Sunday, June 21, 2009 - 20:42

Deepen and broaden your facilitation skills in an advanced workshop open only to graduates of Training for Social Action Trainers. Together we'll tackle some of training's biggest challenges -- including doing cross-cultural work, handling conflict and strong emotions, and modifying workshop designs on the fly -- and experiment with new solutions.

AS A PARTICIPANT, YOU WILL...

  • Receive in-depth, personal coaching on your goals
  • Prepare for cross-cultural work, including international training
  • Use more practice time to experiment with new approaches in a supportive setting
  • Learn about more training tools and how to use them effectively
  • Meet trainers with a range of life experiences

FORMAT

The workshop begins with dinner and registration at 6 p.m.Tuesday and ends at approximately 6 p.m. Sunday evening. Please be advised that this workshop is an experiential package and that partial attendance is not allowed, this workshop will include evening sessions.

PREREQUISITE

This workshop is open only to people who have taken our basic facilitators' workshop, Training for Social Action Trainers. You must take the TSAT before you take the advanced workshop.

FEE

This workshop costs $340 US-$680 US* sliding scale based on income. The fee includes nearly 40 hours of training, all meals from dinner the first evening to lunch the last day, housing (available upon request -- please make sure to tell us at least two weeks ahead of time), and handouts and other training materials.

* We've lowered the usual cost of the training to account for the Canadian dollar being weaker against the US dollar, since we expect most participants will be from Canada. For example, the fee for the lowest income bracket for the Advanced Training of Trainers used to be $400 US and for the 2009 Edmonton training is now $340 US. The reason we list the amount in US dollars is because if you pay via our online PayPal system you will be charged in US dollars and we wanted to be sure Canadians were clear on the exact amount they were being asked to pay.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
