Master Trainer’s credential for 3 of R&D Group Staff

12/09/21
R&D Group has been striving for the past ten years to explore and engage in innovative methods to address the Ethiopian youth unemployment challenge by strengthening and equipping professionals with mentorship and coaching through our impactful training programs. Our highly qualified and internationally certified trainers have long been thriving to empower, engage, and train young Ethiopians. Ethiopia has established the Jobs creation commission, later set up as Federal Ministry of Skills and Labors https://jobscommission.gov.et/, in order to alleviate the country’s high unemployment, particularly amongst the youth. It just launched the #ET Works Master of Trainer Training program, which will train 400 people in foundational skills, Digital skills, Job search skills, Entrepreneurial mentality, and Navigating Career Pathways. The program has been provided by collaborating with private institutions that have the capacity and competency to provide world-class training. The #ET Works Master Trainer Training Program aspires to develop and train professional, goal-oriented trainee graduates for Ethiopia’s future career world. The ten-day intensive training and certification as a Master Trainer drew 63 Ethiopian women of all ages who had previous training and coaching experience. Three of our own R&D Group’s mid-level management women, Sosina Wondwesen, Bethlehem Zewdie, and Frehiwot Sintayehu were among the 63 participants. Participants were allowed to take part in a training program targeted at creating more jobs for Ethiopians and equipping them with new skills, paving the path for job creation. It also provided participants with the opportunity to learn from other trainers and mentors in order to improve their coaching and mentoring skills. Intensive training sessions, practice sessions, and other interactive learning sessions were all part of the curriculum. One of our staff members who attended the training, pictured above, and shared her story about how her experience affected the way she sees herself and the world around her. She noted that while 10 days looked like a small period of time, it had a huge impact on her and that she met brilliant and impressive people during that time. She also indicated an interest in seeing the future results of the 63 trainers among herself. At the end of the training participants had effectively facilitated, delivered, addressed emerging challenges, appropriately supported other participants within their teams, and efficiently used technology-based online/offline tools (interactive, app-based, electronic-platform) required to achieve the intended impact. Thus, we are proud of our performance-driven young female colleagues who represented the women of R&D Group in being qualified as Master Trainers, forming the foundation for the development of better-skilled young professionals.
