Methodologies & Approaches

Training Methodology and Approach

All current training approaches and methodologies should reflect eclecticism when it comes to selecting an appropriate methodological approach to use with a group of trainees. The appropriate training method is very much a hands-on approach, conducting each training session on its own merits, using what the participant knows as well as aims for in the training context, and employing all of the available tools. Such a methodology is process-based, in that it encourages trainees to be both active participants and explorers. Consequently, the approaches to be employed while conducting our training courses are very much based upon the principles mentioned above.

 

Training Materials and Resources

These include, but are not limited to, up-to-date books, journals, periodicals, magazines, websites, field and on-site visits, documented reports and projects, published research work, and conference proceedings.

 

Evaluation

To ensure that attainment targets have been fully met, trainees are all evaluated through a mixture of theoretical coursework and practical applications within the concerned fields. The taught element of the course is complemented by a substantial piece of research or purposeful project leading to the completion of an authentic work in a trainee’s particular area of interest. To emphasize quality training, we ensure that our courses are evaluated on a regular basis by all involved parties. Participants also have the opportunity to rate the training they receive.
