Training

The Civil Society Resource Centre provides support for capacity building of CSOs through training. The capacity building programme is based on CSOs’ training needs assessment as well as the needs defined in the Guidelines for EU support to civil society in enlargement countries 2014-2020. Eighteen pieces of training are foreseen for the three-year period, i.e. six pieces of training per year covering 360 CSOs’ representatives.

The training is implemented by experienced trainers with a mix of theory and practical experience in the relevant areas, following pre-defined methods of work and using the concept of adult learning. The training will facilitate a larger group of CSOs to acquire specific knowledge and skills, but also they will contribute to networking and partnership building.
