As most of you will have seen, we have exchanged ideas about how to strengthen our virtual (online) interaction. On behalf of the PCU, I would like to announce the first online discussion on the topic of training (of and by CoEs). The discussion will be co-facilitated by me and by Ms Linh Phan, the M&E Officer based in Hanoi at the PCU. Here is the summary information you need:
Timeframe: 3 weeks – from 26 February to 16 March, 2018
Title: Putting Capacity Building Training to work: share your experiences, challenges and lessons from ToT training and curriculum use with other VCB-N members

Topics to be covered (Note: We will have on average 3-4 days per topic)
1) Experiences with ToT: What has worked well with the ToT trainings so far? What could be improved?
2) Use/localisation of the curriculum: For those who have started to adapt and use the VCB-developed curriculum…..What are the first experiences with these efforts?
3) Quality Management: How to ensure that VCB-N represents and offers quality services to clients?
4) Future curriculum development/ capacity building: What additional topics would be the most useful ones for future training curricula?
I will soon send you the first message for our discussion under Topic 1: Experiences with ToT, with a couple of questions for you to think about and share your thoughts.
On behalf of Linh and myself, we look forward to hearing about your experiences during the discussion!
