For me, the… Continue

Sharing training materials? How different are the needs?

This is a very old discussion, but I´ve noticed during the meeting that the different countries have many different versions in terms of ownership and funding - government, private, public, municipality, community, etc. I would love to know more about the content, the profile of centres and users that Brazil has done, and so on, so as to get a better feel for the wide range of activities going on. Obvivously this has something to do with the specific kind of training that is… Continue
