What is Pool of Trainers?

The Network of Experts (NoE) of the Regional Training Center on Migration (RTCM) is a group of trainers, professionals, specialized advisors and experts from around the world specialized in various aspects of migration area, who provide trainings in RTCM, as well as consultations, surveys, professional knowledge on current migration issues and trends.

NoE including, but not limited to migration officers, migration practitioners, lawyers, academics, selected with the close involvement of international partners and Partnering States . Participants who successfully complete the ToT organized at the RTCM will also join the NoE to support future capacity building initiatives.

The Network of Experts is managed by RTCM. NoE is gender balanced, with equal representation of men and women. Membership in the Network is not limited by time or number of participants.

Membership is free.



We use Pool of Trainers when it is necessary to conduct online, face to face, e-trainings, as well as ToT in RTCM, conduct research, give new ideas, share experience and knowledge on migration sphere, make suggestions for improving the activity of RTCM, and grow other experts for RTCM, etc.

Each Network expert is specialized at least of least one RTCM training module. Experts can have their own blogs where they post videos, presentations, literature on various topics.

The continued presence of NoE is a prerequisite for providing training opportunities at RTCM.


How it works:

Experts are accepted into the Network by the leadership of the RTCM and create their own cabinet on the web-site of RTCM. Each Partnering States or international partners can propose an expert to join NoE, or an expert can join the Network at his own request.

Experts receive e-mail invitations to suitable trainings and other projects. Experts can accept or reject those proposals. Furthermore, they can provide their own ideas and proposals by e-mail or phone of RTCM.

Representatives of Partnering States can contact experts for research or other matters. NoE will help answer complex questions that require specialized knowledge on migration.
