They will complete a total of four face-to-face training sessions lasting several days until March next year. The first training module provided the participants with knowledge in the strategic management of a cooperative, such as harvest planning. Further subjects are the preparation of a development and work plan for the following year and the development of a more defined service offer for the members of the cooperative. "With slightly different training content," says Régina N´Guessan of TechnoServe, "we want to adapt to the development needs of each group of participants."
A distinctive element of PRO-PLANTEURS is the supportive coaching. Through the subsequent professional support in the day-to-day processes, the trainees will be able to deepen and strengthen the acquired knowledge through practical application. Experienced coaches of all three project areas will support the project.
The course is part of project component 1 (professionalisation of cooperatives).
