  • Why aren't they listening to me?

    We have all, at some time or another, felt that jaded feeling... no-one is hearing us, people aren't listening, I simply can't keep their attention...

    Acknowledging that ongoing education and training towards personal, organisational and social transformation is key towards realising change at every level of society, Vuleka's acclaimed DEE (Designing Educational Events) courses seek to adress this need.

    Both the basic and advanced course equip delegates with the knowledge and skills to effectively design, implement and evaluate a variety of educational programmes for youth, adults, communities, business units or NGO staff.

    During the intensicely structured, five-day courses, novice or experienced trainers gain a comprehensive understanding of experiential learning as a constructive educational framework together with the skills to demonstrate creative ways to design, implement and evaluate an array of learning programmes. Insight is gained into group dynamics and skills to address complex issues which emerge in group situations.

    The courses offer deliberate exercises on personal discovery and trainer introspection aimed at building, nurturing and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships and bringing about a heightened consciousness of the role of the trainer in the broader environment.

    These courses have contributed significantly to the development of many of the leaders in our NGO world today: I think of the likes of Paul Graham (IDASA), Nomabelu Mvambo-Dandala (Diakonia Council of Churches), Revd Sue Brittion (Anglican Church of SA), Revd Dr Norman Hudson (Methodist Church of SA), and so many others. They remain a must-do for any aspirant trainer, facilitator, youth or community worker, as well as being hugely important to anyone involved in designing educational events, whether a one-hour workshop, a worship session or a week long wilderness trail!
