KATHMANDU: A five-day Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop on Trade Map and Market Access Map for professors of Tribhuvan University (TU) kicked off on 28 th November in Kathmandu.
The workshop’s objective is to develop relevant professors as trainers on the Market Analysis Tools developed by the International Trade Centre (ITC) so that they can share their knowledge in their workplaces.
The workshop was organized by the European Union-Nepal Trade and Investment Programme (TIP) in close coordination with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, and Supplies (MoICS) with technical support from the International Trade Centre (ITC) funded by the European Union.
The goal of the workshop is to establish a network of certified trainers on ITC tools who can afterwards train their students at the TU-CEDCON to use ITC Tools as part of their study or their work in future.
During the workshop which will last until 2 nd December, ITC experts will reinforce the knowledge of the two crucial tools.
The trainers will perform individual assessments allowing each participant to instruct future trainees on the application of the ITC’s Trade Map and Market Access Map.
ITC experts will evaluate the performance of the TOT participants based on their technical knowledge, navigation proficiency, and training skills, among others.
In a bid to make the learning more practical and interactive, the workshop features a series of technical discussions, exercises and role-play sessions.
Twenty promising candidates who have been recognized for their performance during the last year’s introductory workshop have been selected.
The ITC has successfully conducted the introductory workshop on ITC’s Market Analysis Tools to selected participants representing TU’s Central Department of Economics (TU-CEDCON) in November 2021.
