The methodology of the training was based on the non formal learning principles. The methods of the
training were selected in order to reflect different needs and learning styles of participants. The methods were the combination of experiential learning (simulation, role plays), group work, presentations, individual reflection and creative work. The following global educational methodology was used but will not limit the organizer to explore
other methodologies which were more applicable to the setting as required:

Testimonial of the reference person

It was a pleasure working with Aga on this training course for which she invited me to join the team. While we didn't officially give titles within the team, from today's perspective I would say that she was the senior trainer in the team, who took a leading role in the team management and coordinated our work. For me this was the first trainers' experience with a group of participants from different continents and I learned a lot from Aga and our third team member on better considering cultural differences and needs in the planing and delivering of the learning process. Apart from being an intensive working and learning experience, this training was also a lot of fun!
