European TrainerGuide - newly launched!

Launched per 1st January 2010 - check here!

This TrainerGuide is in English and serves as a generic model for country versions. The first tests of the guide have been run in 4 countries - with extraordinarily positive feedback from in-company trainers and companies' training managers.
Results from a broader survey will be published in June 2010.

 A Europan TrainerGuide

The project will result in a number of products and activities. The transfer from the Danish TrænerGuide to project products was the starting point for the delivery process.

The first result of this process is the production of a “generic model” – a European TrainerGuide. The generic model is produced in an ongoing transnational cooperation between the project partners. 


Trainers can surf between 10 modules, from introduction to the workplace, to training methods, problem solving, guidance of the apprentice and assessment.

Many companies have contributed with cases and their own best materials. Branch organisations have developed a wide range of templates and tools for download.

 Six national versions of TrainerGuides

The generic model serves as the framework for preparing national TrainerGuide versions, which will be adapted to the language and conditions of the individual country.

The national versions deal with issues of specific relevance for each participating country.  

To be launched during spring 2010:

Denmark -

Finland -

 A transnational practise-related network

Parallel to the creation of trainer guides, there are a number of networking activities. Linking  and bringing together national experts and stakeholders enhances the process of identifying best practices. 

The sharing of well-functioning procedures and working routines, on the national as well as international level, has so far established a framework for successful dissemination of the TrainerGuide on an European level.  

There is also cooperation and knowledge-sharing with other existing networks , such as the Network of Trainers in Europe:
