Method of learning:
We use adult education learning principles: hands on, practical and workshop-based. Experience from the participants is valued and is part of the learning experience. Sessions are customized to fit the needs of the learners. No exams – only learning, experience, and feedback!
All facilitators in the program are successful entrepreneurs. They are also skilled in facilitation and adult education. The philosophy behind the program is that entrepreneurs teach entrepreneurs. Therefore the material is always presented in a real context, with real experience behind it.
Methods of delivery:
We offer both distance and classroom based options.
Coming January 2012 we will offer our next two programs: StaySMART and GrowSMART! Watch for them.
