Training For Transformation is a learning process for community leaders and others interested in social transformation, based on the workshops developed by Anne Hope and Sally Timmel in Africa. Training for Transformation is about learning about transforming ourselves, our communities and our society into sources of justice and equality. The programme is an immersion in participative and experiential learning.
The programme is built around the three circles framework. The content can be categorised under the following headings:
Creating transformation we need to enhance our personal confidence, competence and commitment. The course offers opportunities to better understand ourselves and the approach we take to the work. It offers opportunities to strengthen our motivation and passion for creating a better world. It offers personal skills in key areas such as listening, conflict management or problem solving.
Creating transformation means working with others. The programme offers opportunities to learn about groups, teamwork, organisational development, dialogue, building social movements and other aspects of collaboration for change.
The Wider Society
Creating transformation means engaging with institutions that create and maintain injustices and inequalities. This programme offers opportunities to better understand social, political and cultural systems and how we can constructively engage with them
Who is it for?
The programmes are for anybody involved in working in any setting for a just and equal society. They may be volunteers, paid workers, community, voluntary or statutory. Programmes can be run in a local community or at a regional or national level with teams from many communities participating.
How is it organised?
While the original length of the training was 75 hours, the programme can also be organised in different ways. For example:
