Training of Trainers

Training of Trainers (ToT) 17.2-28.2.2018

The ToT-training was based on the previous step of the project, the awareness raising events for TVET leaders in November 2017, which were implemented in five regions.

The TVET leaders were asked to mobilize vocational teachers to attend the ToT-training, held at FTI in Addis Abeba in February 2019. The total number of invitees was 100, but because of the unstable situation in the country at that time we reached 80 TVET teachers. The ToT-training was based on launching the idea of inclusive pedagogy and participatory methods.


27 August – 1 September 2018: Disability week
3 September – 7 September: Developmental work

The second round of Training of Trainers was held at Federal TVET Institute, Psychology Department
