Exercise course: Soft Skills – Train the Trainer (start in winter term; depending on capacity, training practice optionally in the following summer term and/or the following winter term)

Students acquire soft skills that are relevant for professional practice. They receive a free of charge four-day trainer education, in which they are taught competencies in one of four topics (i.e., Conflict Management, Moderation Techniques, Presentation Techniques, or Self and Time Management) and trainer competencies. Following the trainer education, they put into practice what they have learned and gain training experience in leading soft skills trainings for bachelor students.

The module can be started with each of the courses.
