EXTERNAL EXPERTS INTERVIEWS
The aim of the document that can be downloaded below is to report on the results of the interviews conducted with 11 external experts in the area of organisation of thematic, energy-related trainings. The experts were invited to provide opinions and guidelines concerning:
1. proposed thematic content of the TOGETHER training path,
2. proposed structure of the TOGETHER training material,
3. organisation of Master Train-the-Trainer Workshop in Cracow,
4. organisation of a series of local trainings in 8 project countries.
Except for that, they were also asked some more general questions on how to develop a good quality training material, how to organise efficient trainings and how to get useful feedback from the trainees and keep them interested over longer period of time.
Gathered answers, which are summarised in this report, will help the TOGETHER consortium in the development of a good quality and useful interdisciplinary and transnational training path, which will address in depth all relevant aspects of energy management in public buildings and which will give the trainees new knowledge and skills, enabling them to improve energy efficiency in their buildings. The training material and overall training approach will be tested first during Master Train-the-Trainer Workshop planned in Cracow (Poland) in February 2017 and then - after necessary adaptation - will be used during a series of local trainings for building owners, managers and decision makers starting from April 2017. Experts' guidelines will be taken into consideration when developing methodological guidelines for both these types of events and conducting them.
The training path, which will be developed within the TOGETHER project, might be used not only by our consortium but also by other organisations working with local authorities and wishing to improve energy-related knowledge and capacities of building owners, managers and decision makers. Therefore, developed training material will be publically available and widely disseminated on the EU level to reach all potentially-interested parties, including local authorities and their partners.
