Training methodology:

Interactive teaching: Interactive teaching allows teaching by actively involving trainees in the learning processes through regular instructor/learner and learner/learner interactions. This method focuses on the understanding and meaning of the course content as opposed to merely memorizing them by rote. Learners are constantly encouraged to be active participants.

Experiential learning: Experiential learning is a learning approach through experience, which directly places learners in situations that reflect reality. This approach is based on the learning process rather than on the results (concrete experimentation, reflective observation). The instructor adapts to the learner’s level. The learner will make the group progress by being actively involved in the training and by sharing experiences. This training approach aims to promote the development of learners’ autonomy.

Project-based training: The learner produces his own work project at his own pace, independently. The instructor is present to accompany the learner when he/she encounters difficulties and provides support, advice or suggestions for experimentation to move forward in the project. The goal is to equip the learner with methods, techniques and knowledge so that he/she can accurately analyze and evaluate the production process of his/her project and solve problems with flexibility.
