Foundation for Facilitation:
- Adults possess both knowledge and experience and hence, don’t need to be told what to do, as much as supported in identifying how to take action.
- Adults are motivated by their personal goals, needs and expectations.
- Adults have an inner desire to find meaning, grow and seek change.
- Adults are most effective in an environment that emphasizes self-worth and dignity.
Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere in which people are encouraged to trust themselves, to make mistakes and to try again.
- Adults, who are helped to achieve their personal goals, experience a heightened sense of engagement and buy-in.
- Adults are capable of making decisions, taking responsibility and assuming accountability.
- The adult’s orientation to learning is chiefly related to application.
Eligibility Criteria For Facilitators:
- Must be fluent in English
