Non-Formal Education is any organised educational activity outside the established formal system – whether operating separately or as an important feature of some broader activity – that is intended to serve identifiable learning clienteles and learning objectives.

It is based on learning by doing approach, where the training program is learner centered, focused primarily on their needs. With this methodology, the learner is actively involved and his learning process is self-guided with the support of the trainers. The trainer facilitates the process and shares his experience, but the learning comes from the learners itself.

Non-formal methods are customised to the needs and specific characteristics of each learner, by exploring their learning styles and perceptions and challenging their understanding of learning and education. Finding the best communication channel for everyone is our objective, recognising everyone learns and assimilates information differently is our skill. Some people need to use their body to express, others like to write, some to draw, some just talk and others prefer to stay on the side-lines, yet often all of them are in the same space, at the same time, learning the same thing. Non-formal methods mix the learning experience so that everyone learns and with group reflection gets an opportunity to consolidate what they have learned.

Non-formal learning methods include:

  • Simulation exercises
  • Games
  • Outdoor activities
  • Expression
  • Debriefing
  • Reflection
  • Round discussions
  • Self-Assessment and evaluation
  • Role Play games
  • And much more

By exploring learning opportunities in groups or individuals, everyone will “learn by doing” and have fun. Our trainers will deliver opportunities to explore self-expression, self-analysis and self-awareness during the reflection sessions as the final step to the learning experience.
