AIM OF THE DOCUMENT This document is part of project CAPACITY BUILDING OF HUMAN RESOURCE FOR HEALTH IN SLOVAKIA FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AID supported by European Commission through Lifelong learning programme (project number: 2010 SK1 LEO ) 1. The main aim of the project is to enhance human capacity building in Slovakia and broader region of eastern and southern Europe for work within projects of international development cooperation and humanitarian assistance. Description of the content of the training program is the next step after the creation of outline. Also in the stage of composing the content of the training program, the project working group had to ask several questions to verify: whether all the topics and issues are addressed properly in the training program and whether there is equilibrium between different elements and their relation to the training program. Questions below were crucial for clarification of these matters: 1. What is the most important aim and what is the most demanding competence of each module? 2. Is the content of the module in line with the objectives and the level of competency participants have to reach? 3. Are the modules well situated in the entire training program? 4. Are linkages between the modules clear? 5. Is there overlap in the content within the modules? 6. Are cross cutting issues (human rights, gender, intercultural competence) addressed in the modules? 1 Slovak national agency of the Lifelong learning programme

5 5 2. GENERAL COMPETENCIES Aim of the training program is to prepare development (and also humanitarian) workers to perform on a professional basis. The stepping stone to fulfill this main aim of whole training program are general competencies. These competencies should have the graduate of the training program: be an advisor and/or when needed a leader, contributing to the management of a project contributes to local capacity development and knowledge transfer works context sensibly in development and humanitarian work with a main focus on social and health related issues works as a professional and communicate effectively in an intercultural context be a conflict sensitive in his/her work and respecting human rights maintains a secure and healthy working and living environment and can take appropriate action when needed Developing of these competencies should be therefore present in all the modules and linkages between module objectives and general competencies should be clear. For making sure that the linkage is there, we created the matrix, which indicates relation between module objectives and general competencies, which is attached to each module.

STRUCTURE OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM Training program will be divided into core part and specialized modules. Core part consists of four modules on which are interlocked three specialized modules.
