MIND’s capacity building trajectories are highly participatory. Our trainers adopt an ‘Action Learning Approach’ in which theory is combined with hands-on excercises, role-plays and case-studies. They create an active learning environment in which participants learn by doing and reflecting rather than by passively consuming what’s being told.
MIND’s learning trajectories typically are no one-time training events. In consultation with the people/ organisations involved, we seek to combine training workshops with practical assignments in the field – preferably situated within the work/ life context of the participants.
Ideally, our trainees have a chance to apply their newly acquired skills in the field with on-the-job coaching by our trainers/ facilitators. This has proven to be an extremely effective way of sustaining the learning and ensuring continued application of the acquired skills/ techniques in the participants’ work/ life context.
