Times, language, students:

Training sessions are currently scheduled to take place from 09:00 – 13:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) and/or from 14.00 – 18.00 CEST.  All sessions will include 3½ hours of training, and 30 minutes for breaks or self-reflection.  The total course consists of 8 days of 3½ hour teaching sessions = 28 hours + 2 days of 6½ hour training sessions = 13 hours  + an individual coaching session of 30 minutes = 10 days | 40+ hours in total.

The exact dates and times of these sessions are subject to review.  They will depend on the locations and geographical time zones of the participants who will have registered for it.  Each training will be limited to 21 students, and there will be at least 2 trainers (not including occasional guest speakers) for groups exceeding 8 participants.  Alternative dates and times may be proposed, to address all participants’ availabilities (e.g., moving some sessions to weekends or evening classes, or doing more sessions on the same day, if needed).  All sessions will be recorded (subject to participants’ permission) to enable students who have to miss a session or part of it to be able to catch up on it in their own time.

All programs will be taught in English, although the trainers will be able to also work in German, Dutch, French and Spanish and depending on the number of participants coaching in Greek can also be provided for.
