Hands-on and well-grounded on academic research
Whoever wants to make a convincing impression on his or her clients should be equipped with practical experience, theoretical knowledge and the right methodology. Many people who think about starting a career as intercultural trainer already have lots of practical experience in a variety of fields. For example, they may know a specific culture very well. The challenge is now how to get this expertise across to the participants.
Soon, one will realize that there is quite a difference between one's own practical experience and the skills to explain these based on research-based models and theories. This is where our Intercultural Train-the-Trainer Course comes in. From us, you will receive the theoretical know-how and the practical skills necessary for the development and implementation of sustainable intercultural training.
