What have you learned in this course?

I’ve learned a lot of new techniques of communication with adults in a training environment as well as some new tools that can be used to make people more enthusiastic in their learning/working place. 

My personal aim was also to share good practices of work with adults with other countries and I’ve also learned that we share the same obstacles, therefore it was truly beneficial to meet all of the trainees of this Course and to know more of what they do.

In Catania, i was able to meet people that work in FIERI as well as people that work in Trame di Quartiere and i felt a lot of what they do requires not just resiliency but also good will and no judgments at all – it was a pleasure to meet those people as well and to see how the public measures can be used or not in some types of associations.  

What you think you are going to use in the future in your work?

For me, as an employment technician, the multiple tools I’ve learned in this course can be used with adults that are searching for a new course and/or job in a direct way.

Although, as a Trainer, i acquired a lot of competences that can be used with trainees in a training course environment for example. In this particular topic i will be using two of them in my workshops, designed for this project. 

And maybe i can be able to make something different in my city in the future with this type of new skills and knowledge. 

We never know, and that’s the beauty of this kind of knowledge sharing with people that we never met, the possibilities are unlimited.

What have you learned in this course?


In this course I‘ve learned new tools that can improve my work in light and sound and as a trainer as well, in this field. It is very
important to do active listening in order to improve the enthusiasm of our trainees when you try to teach something (the ice breakers were a nice informal tool). The types of education that I’ve learned can also be use in some workshops that I’ve designed for this project, mainly considering our target groups.

I’ve learned also that i can make use of some ideas shared with the
other trainees of this Project, so it was very beneficial to share my
practices with other people from other countries and learned from
them. I was very pleased to meet some people in Catania that work with
people that come from empoverish environments (ARCI, FIERI and Trame
di Quartiere) because those are the target groups of our project and
to see how Arts can make things change for someone is really good.

What you think you are going to use in the future in your work?
My work as an adult Trainer can benefit a lot with the new competences
that i acquired in Nicolosi, mainly because i could learn some new
techniques that are transversal in a lot of fields; Arts, Education,
Linguistics, Social Work, Law… With that in mind i will use the
Letter to Ourselves (site) to make the trainees do some self
assessment and therefore evaluate how i can teach them. I’m also
seeing that i can use a mix of formal and non formal education
techniques to improve my courses/workshops.

What did i learn… i think that many things…new techniques, for working with adults, new energizers, but most of all i appreciate exchange of knowledge and good practices…. Many of these techniques i will use it at home. I think that workshop from Atef, was most useful for my field of work and i see my self with using this knowledge. I am thankful that we exchange our contacts so I will for sure ask the participant if will have some kind of question for them.

Quotes trainees wrote as part of the evaluation of the training:

“Without awareness of your knowledge and skills, you  cannot plan your future learning”

“Today s learning included all our senses, ratio, intuition… – how to transfer this to reality?”
