The Facilitator has to determine the needs of the learners,
possible learning barriers, previous learning experience, different learning styles, etc. It is also the responsibility of the
Facilitator to ensure that the learning methods selected are appropriate for the learning outcomes to be achieved. Facilitation
must promote open interaction and ensure that learners have an active role in their own learning. Facilitation must enable
learners to draw from their own experience in their working environment and apply the concepts for themselves. The
responsibility of the Facilitator is great and thus they need to meet a high standard of criteria.

of fundraising. For entrepreneurs to grow or scale their business they need funding. For NGOs, Civil Society Organisations

- Training of TrainersThe Training of Trainers (ToT) course is intended to engage master trainers in coaching
new trainers that are less experienced with a particular topic or skill, or with training overall. A ToT workshop can build
a pool of competent instructors who can then teach the material to other people. Instead of having just one trainer who teaches
a course for a long time, there are multiple trainers teaching the same course at the same time in the ToT model. This means a
new participant typically gets to watch an experienced trainer teach, complete the exercises, and then practice teaching segments
to other participants.
- Project Management Course
Project Management Course focuses on equipping participants with fundamentals of initiating,
planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the
specified time. Most projects fails because the team implementing the project is not well equipped with Project Management knowledge and skills, and through this
important course, well qualified Project Managers will be groomed. This course is suitable for NGO, s, companies, institutions, entrepreneurs, managers, supervisors and individuals.
Benjamin Franklin once said” If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.
With good project management, you will be able to plan all your projects, therefore reducing failure rate.
