Call for trainers – Terms of Reference


MY SITE is a project funded by Erasmus+, that aims to train youth residing in Greece – regardless of their background – and help them acquire the tools and skills needed to further develop their business idea and become successful entrepreneurs. The overall objective is to promote entrepreneurship as a means towards social inclusion and integration for both Greeks and third- country nationals, who are often excluded from the labour market thus inhibiting social interaction and exchange.

The project is co-developed and implemented by NGOs and their partners in 5 EU countries (Spain, Italy, Malta, Cyprus, and Greece).

The project includes an entrepreneurship training scheme, complemented by pro-bono mentoring. We are looking for a trainer to cover the following topics (please see accompanying “Training Modules” for a detailed description of the topics and corresponding sessions):

Entrepreneurship training

Training modules:

  • 25 hours of training, covering the following topics:

o finding your niche

o business plan development

o financial management and accounting principles

o communications & marketing

o funding opportunities

  • trainings will be conducted in group sessions of 25 participants
  • trainings will be conducted in English

Trainer’s profile, tasks & responsibilities:

  • adequately prepare to conduct each session ahead of time (prepare PowerPoint presentations, accompanying material and handouts etc., as needed)
  • share all training material developed (PowerPoint presentations, handouts, etc.) with the project manager, to accompany reports submitted to the EC
  • be informed of the profile of the participants, and be able to adapt the curriculum and teaching style accordingly if needed, to maximize engagement
  • show cultural sensitivity and acceptance of different cultures and backgrounds, and adapt teaching style (e.g. examples or illustrations provided) accordingly
  • make sure that the material needed for each session is available in the classroom before the start of the session (flipchart, markers, projector, screen, etc.)
  • collect attendance sheets and feedback forms from participants, following the completion of each session
  • conduct the training session and answer any questions that may arise, looking up any new information if needed
  • assist participants in filling in their business model canvases (during the time allocated in each session) and provide guidance when needed
  • collect the business model canvases of all participants, when the training is concluded
  • communicate and collaborate with the project manager, to collectively identify, address and resolve any risks or challenges during the implementation
  • be able to show some flexibility, if needed and upon confirmation, to adapt and change the structure and/or schedule of the training, under unforeseen developments

Trainings are currently scheduled to start in the beginning of March and will last for 5 weeks total. Training will be conducted in afternoon sessions (proposed time 16:00 -18:30). 25 individuals will be selected to participate in the training and mentoring scheme. All courses will be conducted in English.
