Train the Trainers

I am pleased to announce that the Train the Trainers event which you have expressed interest in will take place on the weekend of 9-10 June at the Wikimedia UK office, 56 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4LT.

The timings of the training are roughly: Saturday 9:30 am - 6:30pm, Sunday 9am - 5pm. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided; we are also planning to go for a meal after the training on Sunday.

It is vital that you do not miss the start of the training session, so before confirming your availability please do make sure you can make the start time of the training.

We are able to cover travel and sccommodation, including if you need to travel on Friday - an advance notice will be appreciated!

Please reply promptly by emailing (or 0207 065 0994) and confirming your availability - places are limited.

If you are not able to attend this time, we will have another training in October, and you will be more than welcome to sign up then. Richard Symonds (talk) 15:17, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Tom. I've dropped a few thoughts on the page and made a few external links that I though were useful to collect together. Feel free to hack it. --RexxS (talk) 00:05, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Memorandum of understanding

Hi RexxS,

I don't know if Training the Trainers/Agreement for trainers is on your watchlist but you might be interested in Talk:Training the Trainers/Agreement for trainers#Memorandum of understanding. Yaris678 (talk) 15:01, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Yaris,
Yes I keep an eye on the TtT pages and have been following that discussion with interest. You can see a potted account of the Education Committee's discussion at Education Committee/Education Committee meeting January 2013/Minutes. I have been pushing to make sure that we don't discourage potential trainers, and suggested that the agreement should be seen as telling folks what each other's expectations were, rather than some sort of legally enforceable contract. The day we even think about suing a volunteer, we might as well pack up and forget about the Chapter because it would never recover from that. I still prefer to rely on peoples' inherent good faith to sort out any problems, so you can be sure I'll be doing my utmost to see that reflected in any document that concerns training. We missed you at the last Manchester Cabal™ meeting[1] - see you at the next one? --RexxS (talk) 04:30, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  1. There is no cabal.
Excellent. I agree entirely with that approach. I get the impression that Fae does too so it's all good.
I was in Devon during the last Manchester wikimeet but should be at the next one. I'm also thinking that it might be an idea to try to arrange a Newcastle wikimeet.

I notice that The Land has just asked the same thing as I did about the last bit of the "agreement". I would just dive in and edit it myself if this was on Wikipedia, but I don't know if the etiquette is different in this context. Yaris678 (talk) 13:13, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
It's probably a little different, but it is a wiki and there's nothing to stop you either amending directly or suggesting an alternative form of words on the associated talk page. I know Daria has been given responsibility for drafting, so there's a little more ownership/responsibility attached than we would expect on Wikipedia, but I'm sure she'd be grateful for any help you might give to the wording.
Yaris mate, we trust you. Knock yourself out. Daria can always revert you later. ;-) -- (talk) 18:53, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
