Training methodology:

A multi-method approach to training is used. Although the diversity-training program can be described as a ‘soft skill’ or ‘sensitivity training program’ because of it’s emphasis on self-awareness, the self-awareness is done through a systematic process and group interaction. The degree to which the process is allowed to evolve is limited and the term ‘experiential learning’ is usually preferred to describe what happens in the group. Within the experiential group, insight is gained into various intra-psychic and interpersonal issues. Through the role-plays the process attempts to prime behaviour. The training method also involves information-oriented training through the cognitive acquisition of lecture material, videotapes, slides, transparencies and reading material.
Lastly participants will also be evaluated during the programme in order to assess their competency level in the field of diversity awareness facilitation.
