Advanced Training for Trainers in Europe (ATTE) is a part-time programme for trainers active in training youth multipliers. ATTE was implemented successfully as a pilot course from November 2001 to October 2003, involving 30 trainers from 21 countries, it is innovative in its approach, methodology, structure, long-term perspective and intensity.

ATTE has been developed and organised within the Partnership Programme on European Youth Worker Training run by the European Commission and the Council of Europe. The Partnership Programme aims to contribute to quality in youth-worker training at European level, with an emphasis on integrating European Citizenship in youth work.

The experiences from ATTE 2001 to 2003 provide valuable expertise, lessons and conclusions for non-formal education in general, and specifically for the further development of training for trainers programmes and schemes, in particular a training programme which is planned to follow up on the ATTE pilot project. It is also intended to use these very fruitful results in the further efforts of the two institutions and within their Partnership Programme in promoting active European citizenship and civil society by giving impetus to the training of youth leaders and youth workers working within a European dimension. It is in this spirit that this publication was given its title: ATTE – AT The End is the beginning.
