Structure of the training

The training was organised in four panels (4 subgroups each of 14 people). Each subgroup was trained by two trainers. 4x2 trainers will dealt with a key-issue and taught this subject in turn to the 4 sub-groups. At the end of each panel, the trainers gave detailed instructions and support on how the training program could be cascaded down during the national trainings.
