Training methods used & main activities

CEFE methodology was developed in 1980s and is considered to be one of the
most successful methods of teaching business development. CEFE trainings are
completely adapted to teaching and oriented towards simulations, empirical
and interactive participation of participants. The learning process will be based
on four dimensions: knowledge, attitudes, skills and habits.

The overall guiding principle to the Training of Trainers will be the ownership of
the process which is acquired through time and energy that participants must
invest into the highly demanding schedule. By moving through the stages from
awareness to transformation, the participant is given the opportunity to
experience personal growth, to develop a more enterprising approach to life,
and to prepare an own business plan. The non-formal learning is the main
characteristic of the training.
