FEB/MARCH 2024, PREPARATORY TRAINING, BOGOTA
Dates for this training is not yet confirmed. If too few participants the training might be digital. To be announced.
The main purpose of the preparatory training is to prepare the participants for living and working in a new culture. The training is mandatory for all participants in Norec’s programs and consists of two parts; a digital pre-training and this week long training that runs from Sunday afternoon until Friday night.
During the training we go through the following modules:
- Being a Norec participant
- Communicating about your exchange
- Intercultural adjustment in the Norec role
- Health, safety and security
- Global Understanding
3 months before the training, Norec sends a sign-up link to the coordinating partner. The coordinating partner is responsible for submitting names and contact information for each participant before the deadline that is due 5 weeks before the training.
Shortly after the deadline Norec sends the digital pre-training to each participant. This digital pre-training complements the on-site training. At the same time we send out a link for transport registration and dietary requirements for the stay. Make sure to complete both no later than 2 weeks before the training starts.
