7 things I learned as a trainer

Plan International Nepal has been implementing the Kamlahari Practice Abolition project (KAP) since 2006 and has rescued more than 3,000 Kamlahari girls and supported them with different interventions focusing in reintegrating girls into their lives, communities and schools in two phases of project KAP I and KAP II. The initial project ended in March 2016. Now, a continuation project Kamlahari Higher Education Scholarship Support (KHES) continued supporting those rescued and benefitted girls in higher education levels (10+2 and Bachelor degree) of Dang, Kailali and Kanchanpur Districts.

Concurring to the KAP, Plan International selected Career Disha Nepal under VHS Bhaktapur for career-integration program where 125 former Kamlahari girls, through 5 different sessions were trained to integrate themselves into the labour market of Nepal.

I was in Kailali along with my team members. Where I was leading 3 different sessions. It was the first long- duration training for me. I was super excited to help the needy people to better their lives. After we reached Kailali I was happy and sad as well, happy to get the chance to help other people to bring positive changes in their lives and sad to be away from the home. But today, I realize that besides all, I learned a lot from them too. Here I like to share the things I learned from them to betterment my training skill to conduct exciting training.

1. Enthusiastic introduction

I felt this is first and foremost essential things to make exciting training.  Who does not like an enthusiastic environment. Making the funny type of introduction session get to know each other would create an enthusiastic environment which also helps to eradicate hesitation and shyness.  Sometimes it might take longer than expected but it is completely okay to be quite late to jump into first day content. That kind of session helps to smooth up entire training to be more interactive

2. Make them feel responsible

I learned that by giving participants some form of responsibilities would help to build their leadership skill. Letting them make a classroom rule, asking their opinion on content and let them decide how we should go further are some example. I felt that kind of session grant them chances to be out spoken in the session. 

3.      Get involved in the game

Trainer involvement in the game has really positive result in learning and sharing. If the trainer gets excited and involves in the game then the same energy flows to the participants. This helps to activate their mind and body. When we have to spend time with the toddler we act like same age child similar manner teaching youth by being a youth helps to unlock any kind of hesitation.   

4.     Create an informal event

Going outside to explore some places is one of the best ways to make trainee more confident and open with each other. Organizing some cultural evening, taking an hour tour nearby during the training session not only refreshed them it also has a positive effect in learning and sharing.

5.      Recognise what they need to know and forward content accordingly

Rather than focusing what trainer know it would be far better to know what trainee need to know. I felt knowing trainees’ needs are most essential for successful training. If one follows the content without considering their needs training might be boring and ineffective.   

6.      Make them feels special  

Sometimes trainee felt inferior to their trainer. To bridge the gap between two are making them special by spending quality time and listening to them actively. Having the conversation in meal time, listening to their opinion, and learns their language also help to create interactive environment.  If one listens to them they felt valuable and special. That is why making them feels special is another element to have fruitful training outcomes.

7.    Positive feedback

If the trainee is presenting something, it is time to encourage them to do better in the future.  I felt positive feedback is the most essential. Positive feedback encourages youth to be more active in coming days than before.  Positive feedback motivates them to engage in session proactively.

Improvments in Result Display

5 new additions/ changes in result display that we have made in June,2019

We are permanently striving to increase our services for our clients. Most recently we have launched a new version of the results of the psychometric assessment to make them even more intuitive for students to read. Here is what we have done in particular.

The learn-more section is the first place the students and youths go to view their recommended jobs. Learn-more has gotten a lot of new changes that were highly demanded by youths as well as teachers. This page describes the 5 changes.

We have now illustrated intuitively the self-employment graph. You can see easily see the percent of the level of self employment in the entire Nepal for any given job.

The demand logo is now larger and clearer. We have also defined the demand differently. They are defined in 4 layers:

  • Very High Demand
  • High Demand
  • Low Demand
  • Saturated

If the counselor has seen your result and has recommended you jobs accordingly, you will see the tick beside your job. (The counselor recommends you job only when you have taken Assessment Basic or Assessment Deluxe)

There are multiple educational ways to reach the same career. We have illustrated that with 4 different colours:

  1. Orange: Academic (e.g. Bachelors, Masters)
  2. Brown: Diploma
  3. Pink: TSLC
  4. Blue: Training


We have created a system to view all the institutes (available in our system) in your selected district to study, all the courses, for the given job. If there no available institutes in your district, the hand signal is shown in red

We hope that all this changes do increase the usability of the assessment. If you have further ideas on how we can make our online services more user friendly, please do not hesitate to send us an email to info@careerdishanepal.org
