Training of Trainers on Soft Skills for Partners in Cambodia

Why should you use a participatory approach in non-formal education? Have a look at the answer of Ms. Chhum Syrom, NFE Coordinator at NEP Cambodia

The DVV International country office in Cambodia conducted a Training of Trainers in Siem Reap based on the Training Manual for Facilitators: Using Soft Skills in Non-Formal Education compiled by Dr. Kaustuv Kanti Bandyopadhyay and Mrs. Priti Sharma for PRIA and DVV International. 13 participants (5 women) from DVV Cambodia partner organisations and representatives of the Non-Formal Education Sub-Sector Group came together to gain a deeper understanding of what soft skills are and how they can be used.


Participatory Approach

The workshop focussed on using a participatory approach for teaching non-formal education and was co-facilitated by Mr. Nong Vutha, Director of the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan, in Cambodia, and our Country Director, Mrs. Vanna Peou.

The three day training ended with a field visit to NFUAJ’s Angkor CLC Project where all participants were able to gain a deeper understanding of the work and functioning of community learning centres in Cambodia. Furthermore, the participants will make use of their new knowledge to co-facilitate the next soft skills training in 2018 and parts of the training manual will be integrated in the new training manual for CLC’s developed by the Department of Non-Formal Education.
