Тraining programme on mentoring and coaching skills

1 Start 2 Complete

EU TACSO 3 is organising training programme on mentoring and coaching skills for civil society organisations (CSOs) in the Western Balkans and Turkey (WBT). This comprehensive training programme encompasses two subsequent training modules that will take place in the time period between end October to end November 2020. 

The programme design has been inspired by three facts: 1) when asked about the most effective capacity development methods, CSOs in the WBT pointed out to the need of tailored, individualised approaches (See:  Assessment on the State of the Enabling Environment and Capacities of Civil Society against the Guidelines for EU support to Civil Society in Enlargement Region, 2014-2020 for the period 2018-2019); 2) mentoring and coaching are being mentioned more often by providers of capacity building support in the WBT as desirable methods of work; 3) since these methods have not been practices extensively so far among CSOs in the WBT, there is a need for further learning. 

The training programme is, therefore, dedicated to CSOs which deliver capacity building services and work on the development of civil society in the WBT, such as resource centres, national and regional networks, sub-granting organisations and others. It should help approximately 30 selected CSOs from the WBT to: 

  • make the distinction between generic and tailored support in growth; 
  • understand importance of both, and relation between personal and organisational growth;
  • increase knowledge on mentoring and coaching as capacity building interventions; 
  • be able to apply aspects of mentoring and coaching in the process of capacity development of CSOs. 

Both training modules and practical work will be conducted on-line.

Both training modules and practical work will be conducted on-line.
