Facilitation considerations in Financial Management Training Delivery
The term training refers to the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and competencies as a result of the teaching of vocational or practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies.
Since training is an activity leading to skilled behaviour, it is not what you dream of doing, but it is about having the knowledge to do it and more of a vision. The best way to acquire these vision and competencies can be through hands on activities. During financial management trainings, participants will find exercises and assignments very interesting if activities are participant-centred through role-plays, model financial management scenarios and general interactivity among facilitators and participants.
During training sessions, facilitators may also consider smaller group work for participants, such sessions must be followed by group presentations. Group work will give participants the opportunity to share their experiences both in the smaller group and in the entire class. There may be various exercises to develop skills for immediate practical application but for now this is what I have to say. --Kafuiaheto 21:44, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
Dear Kauiaheto, You have raise raised important points that are cardinal to successfully delivery of training content to trainee and particularly within the financial managment senario. In any training set up, there must be a transfer of both knowledge and skills. And learning by doing provides one the most effective ways of achieving this.
As facilitators we must avoid a trainer focused approach to content delivery. In other words as little lecturing as possible. Practice on real life situation also gives participants a good challenge of finding solutions to real problems.
Have you been involved in delivering financial management training to youth entrepreneurs in you country?
Delivering financial management training to youth entrepreneurs? This is something I may not have been doing formally. Informally, I realize myself "teaching" financial management to young people I mentor. After this trainers of trainers workshop, I will fully be equipped to formalize financial management training to young people and youth entrepreneurs for that matter.--Kafuiaheto 18:32, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
