EPTO, the European Peer Training Organisation, was pleased to host two trainings.
The Quality peer training against discrimination, a 5-days thematic training focusing on 3 main aspects: romaphobia, confronting discrimination and taking social action. The aim of this training was to improve the quality and strengthen the social impact of peer education methods against discriminations.
The Quality peer training for well-being, a 5-days pilot training aiming at fully integrating and mainstreaming a quality approach of well-being into a cohesive peer education program. The training was based amongst others on the “Learning for well-being” (L4WB) framework and “Risk and lifestyle education”. It was a process for learning to fully access one’s own resources of knowing, doing and being as well as to tackle issues of health and risk.
The trainings were organized as part of the project “Cultivating capacities for quality peer training“ aiming at improving the quality of peer training within and beyond the EPTO network. By reviewing EPTO’s pedagogical programmes, updating materials, integrating new relevant approaches, extracting quality standards of delivery and testing out new seminar formats, we cultivate capacities of EPTO’s peer trainers and new potential trainees and partners, in order to foster and mainstream quality in peer education.
