7 The impact « ATOQ is an excellent tool for youth workers concerned with quality in youth exchanges. » Ana Videira Action 4.3 Project officer in the Portuguese National Agency « This training course is a great opportunity for youth workers to reflect on their practice in leading European youth exchanges. For the French National Agency, developing ATOQ was very important in order to have a training course which targets more experienced youth workers, beside offers more appropriate for beginners (like BTM). » Agnès Erhmann Action 4.3 Project officer in the French National Agency « The ATOQ has now made a strong reputation for itself, with both NA representatives and participating youth workers recommending the course to their colleagues. » Marie-Noëlle Ouellet Action 1.1 Project officer in the UK National Agency « Turkish participants have already started to use the knowledge, skills and techniques that they gained in ATOQ, in training courses given at national level and in Action 1.1 projects that they work as promoters. We will continue to send participants to ATOQs to provide a domino effect to increase the quality of the youth exchanges that will take place in future » Handan Boyar Action 1.1 Project officer in the Turkish National Agency
