POU – October 2016 – TTT Instructors and Learners
POU, one of the three SEED Croatian partners organised and hosted the first TTT training session in Nova Gradiška from 3 to 7 October 2016. Nova Gradiška is a small town of 14,000 inhabitants located in the region of Slavonia, near the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina.10 instructors-learners from Croatia (POU-ORYX-EKOmobilis) and Bosnia-Herzegovina (COB) attended the 5-day training. The training has provided the opportunity to test the project outputs in both English and Croatian: the technnical modular catalogue, the pedagogical guidebook, the instructor’s guidebook, the driver’s guidebook, the movies and the MCQs (evaluation).
Mladen JAMBROVIC (EKOmobilis) and Velibor PEULIĆ (COB) co-delivered the technical training programme using the technical modular catalogue based on EU directive 2003/59/EC. They both applied pedagogical methods involving learners’ participation and group dynamics. PROMOTRANS supervised the pedagogical techniques and their implementation by having each instructor-learner play out a training sequence of their choice. Renata KADRIC (IRU Projects) also attended the training to observe and assess the quality of the pedagogical resources used during this first TTT.
Each training day led to discussions and review of practices on the most effective teaching and learning techniques to be applied when delivering the subsequent CPC Driver training programmes. The project deliverables will be reviewed and updated accordingly.
Evaluation was also an integral part of the training programme. Learners first expressed their expectations prior to the training. MCQs were used to evaluate their learning outcomes. Participants were also asked to rate the quality of the whole TTT programme. All 10 participants found if satisfactory although there is still room for improvement. The next TTT session will take place in FYR of Macedonia from 24 to 28 October 2016. The subsequent CPC Driver training sessions will be organised in 2017 in each SEE participating country: FYR of Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia and Kosovo.
