The activities included in the programme are determined by the specific outcomes of the programme. The facilitators create a safe environment for participants to explore and work with supervisory related issues. The approach of the training is facilitative rather than training oriented. Each participant receives a workbook that provides the necessary information and also guides the process. As part of the programme the delegates are guided in ways of transferring their newfound knowledge, skills and attitude to the work setting.
