Have you ever considered becoming a trainer and conducting trainings for youth? Join our Training for Trainers where you will obtain the necessary knowledge and skills to become a trainer! The Netherlands School for Innovative Education organizes the event for youth workers who do not have any training experience or have only minimal experience in conducting trainings. The event is for those who would like to acquire knowledge and skills in the youth field. Conducting training might seem easy but those who have done it – they know for sure – conducting good training is an art! In order to be a successful trainer, you need to have some specific knowledge and skills. Where to acquire this knowledge? How to develop those skills? We will share that with you!
The training will cover the following topics:
The work of a trainer – what does it mean – to be a trainer? Participants will learn about the work of a trainer, how to become a trainer, what trainers usually do and etc.
The skills of a trainer – participants will learn the skills necessary to become a successful trainer.
Resources for trainers – where trainers can find examples of trainings, where trainers can find some tools, where trainers can find other interesting information necessary for providing quality training? Participants will be given information about the resources for trainers.
Job market for trainers – participants will learn about the working opportunities for trainers: where and how trainers can look for jobs as a trainer; how trainers can find the trainings to conduct; how to position yourself on a market in order to find customers and other topics related to job opportunities for trainers.
Practice – participants will have the possibility to practice what they have learnt in order to check their skills.
Sessions are based on the request of participants – we would like to make the course is interactive as possible. Please let us know which topics you would like to cover and we’ll do our best to accommodate the requests of participants.
If you always wanted to become a trainer but didn’t know how? This course is the way to make the first step!
After the training you will have a clear idea of what are the steps in order to become a successful trainer. Or after learning more about the life of a trainer you might decide that this is not something for you and change your mind on becoming a trainer! Anyways the training will give you a better idea on the work of a trainer.
Though the event aims at preparing the trainers for youth projects we believe the learnt skills and knowledge could be also successfully applied in other fields of trainings such as business trainings, trainings on personal development. We believe successful youth trainers can develop themselves in future and apply their knowledge and skills for other types of trainings as well.
The event is organized by the Netherlands Institute of Business. We are regularly organizing trainings and study programs in Amsterdam, Moscow and other locations. And we are open for cooperation with new trainers. Therefore we would be happy to invite successful alumni of our courses to join our team as trainers for our future projects! If you are interested in becoming a trainer for one of our projects – feel free to send us an email with your interest after the course!

The training center consists of 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large common room for the sessions. In addition to the standard facilities, the training center is equipped with Jacuzzi that can be used by participants, the fireplace where participants can gather in the evenings together, terrace and other facilities which will make the stay comfortable.
The training center in New Moscow is not just a building! It was constructed with the intention to give participants the feeling of the community together! To facilitate informal contacts among participants outside of the sessions. To activate the creativity

Nationals of most of the countries need a visa to enter Russia. If you are not sure if you need a visa or not – please send us an email letting us know which nationality you have and we will be happy to advise you if you need a visa or not.
If you need a visa – we will send you a visa invitation. Please note visa invitation is not a visa. With the visa invitation which you will receive from us, you will still need to go to the Russian Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to bring to the Consulate some other documents (usually these includes passport, passport size photo, filled application form, in some cases – insurance, proof of finances and other documents depending on the country where you are applying for a visa). We recommend you to check the website of the Russian Consulate to see the full list of documents you need to present.
Usually, it takes about 1-2 weeks to receive a visa at the Consulate after the moment you have submitted your visa application. In most of cases before submitting the visa application you need to make an appointment. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. That is why we recommend you to contact the closest Russian Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment for a visa.
Visa fee varies depending on the country where you apply. For EU citizens in most of the cases the visa can be done free of charge. For non-EU citizens the visa fee is 35 or 60 euro (depending on the country where you apply for a visa). Those are the fees if you apply directly at the Consulate. In most of countries, you can apply directly to the Consulate but you also have a choice to apply for a visa to the Visa Center of the Consulate, Visa Center, Travel Agency or to another organization. If you are applying through any of those organizations (e.g. anywhere except the Consulate itself) there might be extra charges.
We recommend you to apply for a visa as soon as possible. And of course – in case of any questions on any stage of visa application we will be more than happy to assist!
