Trainers & Approach
Agriterra considers management and organisation, governance, financial management, lobby and business development a high priority. We work with an experienced, diverse and hands-on technical team to establish the greatest impact and success. Our approach to train and certify trainers aims to control and guarantee quality. Knowledge is transferred to directors, members and staff of cooperatives and farmer associations by our certified trainers.
Peers exchanging experience
Peer-to-peer relationships are characteristic of Agriterra’s approach. This is reflected in our training programmes as well: no theoretical schooling by academics, but peers sharing their experiences. Our Agripool concept is a unique feature in this approach. The Agripool expert is an experienced specialist who ensures the training programmes remain hands-on and generate change.
Selection of participants
Agriterra’s business advisors play a key role in the preparation (selection of participants, assessment of the needs and pre-analysis of the cooperative or the organisation) both during the training and in follow-up actions, assuring a high quality and relevant learning process. The selection of attendees for any training course is essential for its success. An Agriterra business advisor is actively involved in making sure that the right cooperatives participate. To obtain the best results from these sessions, the cooperatives that are invited to the training courses are asked to keep in mind certain criteria when proposing the course to their members.
