Internal education

The system of internal education got a new shape after Spring AgorAsturias 2015. The new Strategy for learning and training of AEGEE was approved by the Agora together with proposals regulating the definitions of trainings and the compulsory criterion of the Local Training Course for each AEGEE local.
There are new requirements that needs to be met in our organisation. For that reason, this page is dedicated to the new training materials, which help the transition of every local to the new structure of internal education in AEGEE. Without content help there is no reason to enforce such new rules.
Therefore, on this page you can find everything you need to adapt to the mentioned new structure of internal education.

Strategy for learning and training

A fundamental document that creates the framework of newly designed internal education in AEGEE. It has a democratic legitimity by Agora. It is not binding document for local antennae as such. It just shapes the processes of training and learning inside of our organisation and bring coherence and consistency into them.

Definitions of trainings

There are new definitions of trainings in AEGEE regulated by AEGEE Statutes. These definitions are binding for local antennae. Below you can find excerpts of the most important parts of the new regulations.

Article 2bis: Local Training Course (LTC)
(1 )
1 A Local Training Course belongs to the category of the Local Events or it can be a series of local events, but it is essential for maintaining knowledge in AEGEE and therefore has limited involvement of AEGEE-Europe.
2 There are two levels of Local Training Courses, the LTC 1 and the LTC 2. They differ in purpose and content.
(2 )
1 LTC 1 aims at integrating AEGEE members into an AEGEE local.
2 Compulsory parts are introductions to AEGEE identity, AEGEE history, the structure of AEGEE and an introduction into the AEGEE local and its activities together with a session about event management skills.
(3 )
1 LTC 2 aims at training AEGEE members with knowledge and skills to get them involved in the work of AEGEE.
2 Compulsory parts are sessions about communication channels in AEGEE, training opportunities in AEGEE, thematic projects of AEGEE and project management and communication skills in a team.

Article 3bis: Regional Training Course (RTC)
(…)
(2 )
1 A Regional Training Course aims at preparing AEGEE members to take responsibilities in board positions.
2 Compulsory parts are sessions about how to run an AEGEE local and leadership skills or strategic planning.

Local Traning Course as a compulsory criterion

At Spring AgorAsturias 2015 delegates decided that organisation of a LTC should be a requirement of all local antennae in the organisation. Thus, the Agora agreed on the new regulation that binds every AEGEE local to organise a LTC according to new definitions (either level 1 or level 2) each calendar year.

Content help

The reality of AEGEE network is different. AEGEE locals are diverse in membership, organisational strength or internal structure. However, the standards of the LTC should reflect the lowest common denominator that unites all locals together. To achieve this goal there are content packages that should help with the organisation of LTC or RTC for locals that are not used to organise their trainings on their own.

The page will be updated soon with RTC package as well.
