How Can I Attend Trainings?
STGM's training is for civil society organizations. For this reason, you must apply for our training on behalf of the CSO you support or work for. We expect CSO representatives, who are accepted to the trainings, to transfer the knowledge and skills they have acquired during the training to their organizations after the training and use for strengthening the capacity of their organizations.
You can follow the announcements of STGM trainings open for application from the STGM bulletin, web page, and social media accounts, and apply to our trainings by filling the application forms. For the training you are accepted for participation, you must receive a letter stating that you are a representative from the executive board of the CSO on whose behalf you have applied.
In principle, STGM's training is open to all CSOs with or without legal status. STGM evaluates all applications in line with the principle of objectivity and equal distance and within the framework of previously announced criteria and aims to reach as many organizations as possible. However, in cases where our resources are limited, we prioritize small and medium-scale civil society organizations that carry out local advocacy activities based on a rights-based approach in need of the capacity building.
On the other hand, in order to reach STGM trainings to a wider audience, we take care to accept CSO representatives who could not benefit from our trainings in the past.
