Impressions from Participants of POU Courses



POU team did a great job incorporating a blend of indoors and outdoors activities in the course. The greenery surrounding Čakovec was the perfect environment for an engaging educational experience.



It was a wonderful experience learning about how we can use technology in a new and more inclusive way to reach our audiences. Mixing technology, interacting activities and cultural program made our training more engaging and fun. We left with so much more knowledge!



Sharing our experiences with others and getting valuable feedback made us think we made not only potential colleagues but also friends. I highly recommend cooperating with POU!
