As an AGIAMONDO development worker, you will be provided with ongoing assistance before, during and after your work with your partner organisation. This will include training, consulting and individual coaching for your personal learning processes for this work and the opportunity to interact with other development workers. During your return, we will assist you in evaluating your service and in adjusting to life in your home country again.
Before it all begins: Preparation
With experienced desk officers, you will draw up a preparation plan geared towards you and the areas in which you will be working. In a series of internal and supplementary external seminars, you will learn everything you need for an effective international collaboration. You will build on your development policy know-how and learn how you yourself can boost the effectiveness of your own work by reflecting on yourself and the work you do together with your partners. We will familiarise you with interaction methods, e.g. with your colleagues in the partner organisation. You can learn techniques such as storytelling with the aid of video films or even smartphones. External coaches and supplementary seminars will help you to deal with conflicts in the host country and to care for yourself – to do so, we will train you in safety-relevant behaviour and security management. If required, the preparation will be rounded off with language courses, usually in a local language.
Cooperations with other providers such as Dienste in Übersee gGmbH and additional specialist input from other institutes will help to solidify the individual planning of your training programme.
