Accredited Training

Delta Environmental Centre’s Accredited Training programmes seek to empower participants to “be the change they want to see in the world”. The participants are engaged in a process of active enquiry and investigation that stimulates life-long learning.

Each skills programme comprises 40% theory and 60% work-based application.

Each contact session includes experiential learning within an outcomes-based approach. Practical application is achieved through group/individual work, research, community-based interaction and coaching. All assignments are set within workplace-based contexts.

All contact sessions will be followed by experiential workplace tasks that learners will complete at their places of work. All tasks will involve a problem-based approach to addressing local environmental issues.

The courses:

  • are relevant and context bound
  • accommodate learners’ special needs
  • are structured to enable reflection
  • are designed using a variety of methodologies
  • are based on exciting resources and facilitated by experts with excellent knowledge and experience in the field.
