Train the trainer
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we switched the organisation of a face to face train the trainer programme into a digital one. With the whole Ukrothe team a ranking was made during a co-creation session and questionnaires to pinpoint the most important topics that the Ukrainian teachers and care professionals want to increase their knowledge on. The more theoretic topics were incorporated into 5 courses created by the Western-European partners of the project in the second half of 2020. This resulted in the following courses:
Course 1: Foundations of Occupational Therapy
Course 2: Models of Occupational Therapy
Course 3: Interprofessional collaboration
Course 4: International Classification of Functioning (ICF)
Course 5: Research
24 teachers and professionals are enrolled for this online train the trainer programme. All courses include a written manual of 25 up to 50 pages (in English and Ukraine), a powerpoint presentation (pre-recorded or webinar), assignments and an exam. The digital platform also includes a discussion forum and the teachers are available for any questions on the topic.
All enrolled students should finish this part of the train the trainer the latest by June 2021.
For the other ranked topics, which are more practical, we are depending on the Covid-19 pandemic to decrease in force. The topics require demonstrations, practical handlings with direct feedback from the teacher.
