Teachers without Borders trainings are high quality education not only for those about to leave on voluntary periods, but also for teachers who are looking for extra training on global citizenship education and international issues. The education sessions are aimed at all teachers and educators interested in these issues.

Pre-travel training sessions are obligatory for volunteers and an essential part of the volunteer programme. The volunteers need a thorough understanding of the situation and culture of the receiving country.

In addition, the training includes assessment of the realistic goals and motivation of the volunteer.
