UNLEASH YOR INNER FACILITATOR!
PERMACULTURE TRAINING OF TRAINERS 23 TO 28 MAY 2011-ROCKLANDS PRIMARY, MITCHELLS PLEIN CAPE TOWN
This dynamic course is designed to equip participants with participatory Permaculture facilitation skills. By the end of it, people will have a solid understanding of the standard content of an international PDC, and know how to teach it with flair and creativity. It will be held at Rocklands - the SEED Permaculture training site in Cape Town.
Participants attending this course need to have completed a 72 hour Permaculture Design Course anywhere in the world, and have good practical experience in designing and managing Permaculture systems. Based on their Permaculture experience, participants should be able to co-facilitate or assist on PDCs after this course, particularly courses training adult learners. The course will also enrich trainers working with younger people as the material and approach can be adapted.
The course will have some important preparatory work required from students so that we can use our training time more effectively. This includes reading material and pre-course assignments. We have a limit of 12 participants to ensure that the quality of training and attention to students remains of a high standard.
Facilitators: Alex Kruger and guests
