               Residential Training                       Last Date to Apply: 28th Nov.2023


In societal and organizational development processes training has acquired the vanguard tools for proper percolation of concepts, approaches, techniques, and general conduct of ways to the intended beneficiaries either be it staff of an organization, community, an individual, or a group. Training of Trainers is a powerful tool to enhance the capabilities of people who design and deliver training at different levels and contexts.

The greatest inhibiting factor for organizations to outsource trainers is its high cost. Although it is wise to outsource training expertise in some areas, others requiring tight internal control are better handled in-house i.e., better use your own trainer. But it requires a lot of skills to be a good trainer. Being good at a subject does not signify you are a good trainer, and hence it does not ensure the transfer of knowledge, skill, etc. to the intended target. That's exactly what's needed to energize and inspire trainers' own work and personal development, and to widen their perspective. In order to address these issues, SST has developed a comprehensive. TOT program for new as well as experienced trainers based on participatory principles for effective learning. TOT is a curriculum tool to prepare master-level peer education trainers. Participatory techniques based on a variety of theoretical frameworks are utilized to ensure that future trainers are skilled and confident in their abilities to facilitate the process of acquiring new knowledge and skills learning from the reflections of structured experiences of the participants in the group.
