THE WAY WE WORK

exporTT’s Training unit works through a number of experienced senior experts who go beyond theory and possess an intimate understanding of the challenges faced by clients. exporTT selected Facilitators all hold the following beliefs:

  • Participants are good, capable and competent; they come to the programme with high expectations and, they each have unique learning styles and face competing interests related to family and other life realities
  • Participants need acknowledgement, role models, frequent feedback and positive social bonds to feel emotionally safe.
  • Participants must be actively engaged in the learning process
  • Participants bring to the programme a wealth of knowledge, skills and experiences gained from formal and informal learning experiences. The role of the Facilitator is to assist the participants in relating the new knowledge to past experiences
  • Participants learn more effectively by doing or experiencing; the Facilitators’ focus is helping them to learn rather than teaching.
  • Employs highly interactive and participative training environments
  • Competitively prices workshops which do not compromise quality
  • Possess excellent Customer Care qualities
