Training on Housing First

The Hub runs an annual educational programme for Housing First trainers called Train the Trainer.  The goal is to create a European pool of trainers who are experienced and knowledgeable about Housing First, and who will be able to conduct a variety of training modules on aspects of Housing First in countries across Europe, and beyond.

The Housing First Europe Hub wrapped up its first Train the Trainer programme in October 2018. The course brought together a Cohort of 25 trainers from 12 countries over the course of a year. The curriculum was based on the Housing First Europe Guide (which is now available in English, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Spanish, Hungarian, and Czech – ).

The trainers used the 8 core principles of Housing First as a foundation for the course, and are now developing their own training courses on topics which cover topics in the following areas:

– What is Housing First

– Delivering Housing First

– Managing Housing First

The Housing First Europe Hub’s expert trainers are leaders in their field and work in organisations, governments, and educational institutions across Europe. Trainers who have completed the Housing First Europe Hub’s trainer programme comprise our Housing First Training Faculty.
