What is the goal of the training programme?
The main purpose of the Erasmus+ STT week on Mentoring, Leadership & Coaching is to provide participants with the know-how needed to coordinate effectively teams, integrate colleagues in a working team and mentor the students at the university. In the training we will focus on raising the motivation of the team members and students; proper ways to delegate workload; deal with conflicts; use different leadership and coaching models; do a lot of (self)reflection and much more. Coaching combines the HR management, communication and assertiveness training programme aiming to emphasize the power of a coach, regardless if s/he is an official leader or an informal one. Participants will be actively involved in all of the processes, interact in a dynamic scenery designed to foster dialogue and debate, being constantly challenged in the learning process.
Whom does it address?
Participants to the training should be members of the academic community with an English level of B1 or above, looking to develop and/or improve their communication knowledge and skills: teaching staff, administrative staff, PhD candidates or researchers etc.
How is the programme structured?
The training programme will take place in the lovely city of Brno, Czech Republic. Booming Brno, with its creativity, history and subterranean mystery, is the perfect antidote to overrun Prague and its forests of selfie sticks. The training programme will be divided into interactive workshops combined with theory, individual, small and big group activities. With a total duration of 25 hours, the classes will take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. After completion, all participants will be awarded Erasmus+ Staff Mobility (STT) certificates. The training includes also a cultural component with the possibility to visit the Špilberk Castle, the 2nd Largest Ossuary in Europe, go on a hot air balloon ride, visit Brno‘s unique villas, go on a walking city tour and experience a traditional Czech cuisine.
Can the training be funded through Erasmus+ STT grants?
Yes, each participant can apply for a mobility grant within his/her institution. We will provide all the required documentation for the Erasmus+ STT grant applicants: invitation, training curricula and certificate of attendance.
