About

The Intercultural Trainer Academy is an intensive 10-day program which combines theory and practice on intercultural competence and intercultural training. Theoretical input from intercultural scholars will be complemented by insights from lecturers and practitioners of InterCultur and Jacobs University Bremen on how to teach intercultural competence in intercultural trainings.

Overview

What is the Intercultural Trainer Academy?

The Intercultural Trainer Academy is an intensive 10-day program which offers the opportunity to become an intercultural trainer. It is organized twice a year. The winter edition in January is organized by InterCultur in collaboration with Jacobs University. The summer edition in August is organized solely by InterCultur. The Intercultural Trainer Academy offers a unique blend of theory and practice tailored to your individual needs and interests. Theoretical input from intercultural scholars will be complemented by insights from lecturers and practitioners of InterCultur and Jacobs University Bremen on how to teach intercultural competence in intercultural trainings.
