The Structure of DELES Programme

DELES training Programme is known as “the phased training Programme” The phases consists of a four-week programme spread over two years in four phases (each phase lasts for one week) with a six-month interval for practical operational experiences during which the skills and knowledge acquired are expected to be put into use . The projects embarked upon must have a direct impact on the people and the community as a whole. Each phase is a six to seven-day intensive and experiential work-shop. Each phase has a specific focus and a set of objectives to be achieved, yet there is a flow and an over-lapping of ideas in the inter-disciplinary nature of the approach used. Even though each phase has its own focus, the next phase builds on the former phase’s experience because the training programme is rooted in the principle of action-reflection –action reflection cycle which tries to meet the expectations of all the participants.
