What is TOIT?

TOIT stands for the ‘Training of Intercultural Trainers’. TOIT participants learn , or add to their knowledge of, how to design, develop and deliver effective intercultural training interventions and (further) improve their training skills.


TOIT brings together newcomers to the intercultural field, students with intercultural focus and experienced intercultural practitioners from all over the world to learn from each other, discuss their intercultural careers and network.


TOIT is open to anyone over 18 years old. There is no maximum age limit for participants as Young SIETAR unites intercultural trainers young at heart.


The program offers two primary tracks – Core Skills and Advanced Skills -  depending on participants’ level of experience. Furthermore, participants can choose from an array of optional Open Sessions to accelerate their learning.


As TOIT is aimed at prospective trainers who have just started building their careers in the intercultural field, this training is envisioned as a low-cost event. Although TOIT is affordable for beginner intercultural trainers, it is facilitated by recognized industry practitioners.

In the past, TOIT was held in Berlin (Germany), Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Jena (Germany), and Krakow (Poland). This year, TOIT will take place in Barcelona, Spain.
