Types of trainings
We organise professional trainings, which means they are conceived to reinforce the participants’ professional skills, and consequently, to reinforce their institution or organisation’s skills.
They approach technical fields (organic farming, seeds, cooperative reinforcement) and methodological fields (Project Cycle Management, Management based on Results).
Our target audience is mostly development stakeholders (leaders, technicians, decision-makers…) working within Southern or Belgian organisations supporting rural Development and family farming: NGO, farmers organisations, public services, universities, research or popularisation centers, decentralized communities, survey departments…) Secondarily, some trainings apply to students or people not working yet but wishing to commit themselves in these areas.
We can give our trainings in Belgium or in a South country. They can last from 3-4 days (basic or specific trainings) to many months (integration of technical and methodological content, possible integration of a phase of coaching).
We present in our catalogue typical training units in which we have practice and recognised expertise. These trainings can be adapted and most of them can be moved to South, depending on requests and potential sources of funding: complete catalogue (available only in French). catalogue complet à télécharger (pdf).
