Our Unique Training Methods and Ethos (We have fun and learn at the same time!)
Our training methods are creative and interactive with an emphasis on involvement and fun. They include:
• Participatory games and activities
• Discussion groups
• Case studies
• Bubble machines and music!
We include the use of IT within our training wherever appropriate in order to introduce learners to self-directed learning through accessing relevant information, tool kits, self-help tools etc. available on the world wide web. We know our learners come from very different backgrounds and community settings and therefore encourage them to develop the skills and experience they bring – some of which may not have been acknowledged before. All our training is participatory and experiential with an emphasis on sharing within a relaxed and supportive learning environment. Theory is put into practice and contextualised within the experience and working life of the individual learner. The overall emphasis of all our training is on ‘content over style’ and in ‘making the concepts work for you’.
We use 2 trainers in groups of over 10 and often have an assistant trainer to support the participatory sessions. Groups establish their own ground rules and all activities promote equal opportunities and participation. Materials and resources reflect the diverse nature of the businesses and communities we work in. All our course materials are available in braille and audio formats.
The quality of our courses is maintained and developed through learner’s evaluation, training review / planning meetings with trainers and reviews with partner organisations / agencies.
