Key individuals in the community – male and female – are identified and invited by the local Country Director to undertake Wise Choices for Life’s core Train the Trainer training. They qualify as Wise Choice for Life’s Accredited Trainers. Trainers may study further to become Accredited Facilitators which will qualify them to Train other individuals to be Trainers.
1. Facilitator (Accreditation to Train others to become Trainer)
Wise Choices for Life’s core focus is the design and delivery of TRAIN THE TRAINER courses in the areas of Reproductive Health and Life Skills.
Our Facilitator training covers in-depth knowledge in Reproductive Health and Life Skills. Additionally, eligible candidates enrolled into our Facilitator’s training will learn the skills needed to train, coach and mentor individuals who want to become Wise Choices for Life Accredited Trainers.
In summary, our Accredited Facilitators undertake our Reproductive Health and Life Skills courses as well as our Train the Trainer course. This qualifies them to train individuals to become Trainers of Reproductive Health and Life Skills courses that are aimed at the ‘general’ public.
2. Trainer (Accreditation to train Participants. Attend Train the Trainer course)
Participants who are keen to impact their circles of influence more intentionally can usually be identified as community leaders. This is Wise Choices for Life’s core interest and we seek out male and female leaders to undertake our course for Trainers.
On successful completion of our Train the Trainer course, graduates become Accredited Wise Choices for Life Trainers. Accredited Trainers will run ‘formal’ Wise Choices for life training courses for Participants.
Highly skilled and experienced Trainers may apply to be considered for further training to become an Accredited Facilitator and train and coach other Trainers.
3. Participant (Certificate of Participation)
Participants are community members, keen learners and students attending our core Reproductive Health and Life Skills training courses.
Participants complete a short exam to consolidate the information they have learnt.
They are trained in how to ‘informally’ spread their new-found knowledge and model the use of the skills in their homes, personal lives, workplace and wider community groups.
Participants may apply and be considered for accreditation as a Trainer to deliver ‘formal’ training.
