RESOURCES FOR TRAINERS

The resources for trainers include Trainers' Notes along with a set of presentation slides, student notes, class activities and supporting reference materials. These can be adapted by trainers to meet their needs and to local contexts, while significantly reducing workshop preparation time.

The training resources are available through the web-version of the e-learning course, under the Resources for trainers' section and as zip-files below. We advice trainers to commence with the powerpoint presentation which will explain the use of the supporting materials.
