Skills Development Program is initiated for the purpose of personal development of women involved in WiTT development. It supports individual aspirations and interests of WiTT/ ENAWA trainers, which can benefit the whole team of trainers. As interests and individual aspirations of trainers regarding specific knowledge differ from one another, and as it is not efficient in terms of time, language diversity, skill levels and money to organize international training which would cover technical issues, the Skills Development Program is developed. Participants of this program will share knowledge gained during Trainers’ Exchange Events, through sharing books, notes, and writing a small manual about the skill they were trained in. There should be diversity among skills ENAWA trainers posses. ENAWA trainers and those aspiring to be one are invited to apply to be granted funding for getting trained in a local computer school of their choice in a matter of their interest. These matters should be of technical nature, for example – creating a web page, digital image editing, creating a data base, administering a computer network, servicing computers, etc. The technical knowledge the applicant would gain this way and the written material would be further shared through Training Mentoring Events and ENAWA trainings.

Things necessary to apply:

  • Be informed about the criteria for participation (included below)
  • Motivation letter
  • Application - with short description of the course, information about the computer schools, time and place the course take place, price of the course.

Topics eligible for applications:

  • ICT policy
  • On-line radio
  • Multimedia on-line
  • hacking
  • Privacy, security on-line (firewall, viruses)
  • Linux user
  • Linux administration
  • Broadcasting
  • Graphic design
  • Web design and Dreamweaver
  • PHP, My SQL
