Coaching is the process through which one gets support to achieve a specific personal target or goal.

Trainday coaching services are related to both phases of the EPSO Competitions - the Computer Based Test (pre-selection) and the Assessment Center.  We have created 8 packages - six for each stage and type of the EPSO competition and two on MS Office and design. Except package 1 all others can be done in 4 or 5 hours but the participant together with the coach can decide if more focus is needed on a particular topic. Each session is a mix of theory, example, tips and tricks and possible simulations of the real tests. We typically charge 75 EUR/hour.

It is possible to organise these sessions over Skype as well or in person at our Coaching office in Evere, Brussels

If needed some parts of the coaching sessions (e.g. simulations of interview) can be done in French as well.
