The Public Affairs Regional Centre (PARC) supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Defence in the period of 6-17 March organized the first module of the third “Train the Trainers” cycle.
Enabling the future domestic and regional media trainers to conduct courses in the field of Public Affairs at PARC is the main goal of this cycle of training conducted by the PA experts from the Norwegian Hill+Knowlton Strategies.
Seventeen candidates for media trainers from Albania, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Moldova and Macedonia during the two weeks of the first module of ”Train the trainers” had the unique chance to learn and practice the PA tools for effective communication and dealing with the media in peacetime and crisis situations. Moreover, through simulations of realistic scenarios they had the opportunity to enhance their techniques for TV Interview, Social media, organizing and handling a News Conference, writing and delivering an effective Speech as well as to develop their presentation skills and techniques in giving individual feedback within the group.
This unique cycle of training consists of three different modules. The next, second module of “Train the trainers” will take place at PARC from 24-28 April 2017.
