Approach

Learner-centered and practice-based

Learner-centered and practice-based

In a large scale, we will adopt an experiential learning approach to designing and delivering the programme to achieve the desired outcomes.

Transparency and authenticity

Transparency and authenticity

What the trainers do should also serve as an example and as role models to participants.

Challenge and safety

Challenge and safety

Participants are challenged in order to reach a high learning impact, they are not left in the dullness of their comfort zone.

Voluntary and participative

Voluntary and participative

Nobody is forced to participate in the activities, the group processes should be based on consensus, ownership and motivation.

Holistic (hand, heart, head, health)

Holistic (hand, heart, head, health)

All areas of existence and being of the participants are touched in order to take account of the different learning styles, and the holistic nature of human beings.

Diversity as a positive resource

Diversity as a positive resource

Training course is implemented in a way that diversity and differences are appreciated and embraced as a source of mutual inspiration and learning, rather than as obstacle.

From general to particular

From general to particular

We will bring participants from general (practices level) to more personal (self-expression).

Accessibility and inclusion

Accessibility and inclusion

The training methods should be appropriate not only for the learning needs of but also should be inclusive for everyone.

Peer-to-peer

Peer-to-peer

We recognise the value of the group learning process, where each participant can act as a source for learning and reflection for the other participants.

Professional and personal development

Professional and personal development

Development of the participants during this training course is not only limited to their professional world, but also reaches out to their personal life and possibly even to their personality, behaviour, attitudes and values.
