About the trainings
Norec provides training courses for and follows up its partnerships before, during and after an exchange has taken place. Norec's trainings are a necessary and compulsory supplement to our partners ‘in-house’ training.

The overall objective is to strengthen partnerships to find solutions to the challenges addressed by UNs sustainability Development Goals and Agenda 2030. The trainings should also address results for the partnership and maximise learning for both the individual and the entire organisation.

Our philosophy

Successful exchanges depend on proper preparation and training of and by participants and partners. The courses are designed to encourage active participation and make use of a variety of teaching methods to increase motivation to be a proponent of change and to foster personal reflection. The course encourage participants to share, learn and teach.

The tools and methods facilitate for enhanced partnership goals through:

  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Communication and collaboration
  • Interdisciplinary, intercultural and global understanding
