Westminster Foundation for Democracy invites you to participate in election observation training in June 2017.

Two separate trainings will be organised for short-term and long-term observers in London (at Artillery House, 11-19 Artillery Row London, SW1P 1RT).
• A two-day short-term observer (STO) training will take place on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 June 2017. This is suitable for people who have not participated in short-term election observation before or who have participated in 1-2 STO missions.
• A three-day long-term observer (LTO) training will take place on Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 June 2017. This is suitable for people who have been an STO on a minimum of 2 missions or who have participated in 1-2 LTO missions.

WFD will engage two international and well-reputed trainers, and these trainings will be in collaboration and according to the training methodology of Election Observation and Democratic Support (EODS), the training body for EU EOMs.

The cost of these trainings is £150 per day, therefore £300 for the two-day STO training and £450 for the three-day LTO training.

WFD will NOT cover any costs for transportation, accommodation and visas or make the necessary arrangements. Lunch and two coffee breaks will be provided each day.
