#1-4 of 8: The Basics of Effective Training
This series of Tip Sheets is geared at extension and advisory service providers (managers, field staff; public or private sector, NGOs). It sets out simple suggestions for making sure women and men - including youth, persons with disabilities, and other marginalized groups:
- feel wanted and included in training events,
- are fully informed about technological, production, or process options,
- learn effectively, and
- have the confidence to implement what they have learned.
Over time, both women and men should be able to build on the training to innovate by themselves in response to changes in the wider environment and their specific resources and needs.
Good training events need more than great content. How you train is vitally important.
It is essential that both women and men are able to speak their minds and have opportunities to shape the training event for their own requirements.
As future farmers, the needs of young women and men in farming households need special attention in order to encourage those interested to stay in the sector.
