Baseline / problem

In Leonardo Transfer Of Innovation project SPAT were preview 3 training of trainers courses on work related stress prevention management in Hungary, Slovakia and Boulgaria respectively. Trainers were Greek transfering partners and target groups were diversified in the three countries.

Good practice: (Measures, instruments, criteria, indicators)

Before the organisation of the training of trainers courses, Hungarian, Slovak and Boulgarian partners compiled a national report indicating the context and the specific needs in each respective country. Hungarians revailed to be mainly labour phsychologists, Slovaks mainly management academics and Bulgarians mainly engineers and SME managers. The three training courses were adapted to the specific needs.

Problems and constraints encountered and solutions found:

Information about training needs could be very diverse and this could produce difficulties in their usability. Therefore, Greek partners have developed a template in order to get uniform information.
