  • On 6 December a 1 day training for “Formation Maître de stage des apprentis” will take place with 11 participants from different departments.

Virginia Prieto, responsible for the apprentice programme at CERN, has taken this initiative. The cost of the course is taken on the apprentice programme budget, so no cost for the departments. The course is delivered by an outside organization, and the idea is to organise such events once a year.

  • On 11 December a 1 day training on “Drafting clearer contracts” will take place with 21 participants from different departments.

Myriam Ayass has taken the initiative, she met the trainer at a course, and we benefit from the opportunity that he is here in Geneva. This is a one off event, and the departments of the participants will have to pay for the course (250.-CHF with 21 participants or max. 500.-CHF)

  • CANCELLATION - Train the Trainer Module 1 Design in French is cancelled due to lack of participation. The session Module 2 Delivery in English, will be held 31st January 2020.
