We are inviting potential debt advisors to send their applications to participate in a series of ‘Train-the-trainer’ online sessions on how to improve the quality of debt-advice services for European households.
This call for expression of interest and the provision of trainings is part of a wider DG JUST project on “Provision of actions to extend the availability and improve the quality of debt-advice services for European households”.
Who can apply?
The target audience of the trainings includes professional experts in subjects related to consumers’ debt and qualified volunteers who should become professional debt advisors (or the ‘trainees’) from countries where debt-advice is sporadically provided or completely lacking and have a reduced number of debt-advisors.
The trainees should come from Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania and Spain and will be trained by experienced debt-advisors (or the ‘trainers’) who will share their expertise and knowledge.
Through the trainings we want to enable new potential debt-advisors to instruct other experts and contribute to develop the provision of debt-advice across European countries.
When and where?
The trainings will take place in two sessions (online). The first session is expected to take place in April 2021 while the second session will take place in the summer of 2021 (dates to be confirmed). The first session fill focus on the actual training of the successful applicants, while the second one will also focus on the lessons learnt in the first session and will evaluate the effects of the information received by the trainees.
The trainings will be held in English and in the local language. Language interpreters will also be available throughout the training.
