The track Training & Development develops trainers who can bring groups of employees or employers to change in a careful and motivating manner. They can convert training goals into concrete training programmes. Because of their knowledge and sensitivity to the effects of social behaviour, and their skill in dealing with difficult group processes during training, these scientifically trained trainers stand out favourably in the work field of training.
