Methodology

The methodology used in this training will be a combination of the following:

  1. Participative: The participants will be asked to contribute to the training both in a large group and also in smaller ones. There will be a number of structured exercises throughout the training that are designed for the group to be split up into smaller ones and be guided by the facilitators on an individual basis.
  2. Experiential: The training will allow participants to contribute with examples of groups that they have worked or are working with.
  3. Theory into practice: The training will allow role-plays that will encourage participants to put theory into practice and also observe and discuss scenarios.
  4. Information giving: there will be handouts and information on relevant reading that will be distributed at each days training.
  5. Worker led: The training will be flexible to the needs of the group.
