Train-the-Trainer Programme

The Hub runs an annual educational programme for Housing First trainers called Train-the-Trainer, designed for trainers who wish to specialize in training on Housing First.  The goal is to create a European pool of trainers who are experienced and knowledgeable about Housing First, and who will be able to conduct a variety of training modules on aspects of Housing First in countries across Europe, and beyond.

Now entering its fourth year, each course brings together approximately 30 trainers from a number of European countries and beyond for three training sessions in different European cities over the course of a year. The curriculum is based on the Housing First Europe Guide (which is now available in English, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Spanish, Hungarian, and Czech).

The trainers use the 8 core principles of Housing First  as a foundation for the course, and are now developing their own training courses on topics which cover topics in the following areas:

– What is Housing First

– Delivering Housing First

– Managing Housing First

The current course will run in late 2022. Please note that each Cohort is limited to 30 participants. Participants from organisations that are Founding Partners or Associates to the Hub are offered first preference on course places.

To become an Associate to the Hub, or if you wish to be kept informed about applications for the train the trainer programme, please contact one of our Hub Programme Coordinators (see below for contact information).
