A support to explain the construction of training courses for social transformation

When thinking about training courses that are intended to contribute to social transformation, it is essential to characterise the initial situation (that which one wants to transform) and the desired new situation (what one wants to strive for) :

When thinking about training courses with a vocation to contribute to social transformation, it is essential to characterise the initial situation (the one we want to transform) and the desired new situation (what we want to strive for):

A. Characterise the initial situation->rubrique12] : what are the relations of domination at work? the inequalities perceived by future learners? the vulnerabilities that characterise them? Which ones seem to be the priorities to be transformed?

B. Projecting oneself into a new, transformed situation. This collectively constructed vision is then broken down into general training objectives and serves as a guideline for developing the corresponding training systems.

C. Clarifying the training objectives to translate them into pedagogical objectives enables us to set high ambitions in defined and circumscribed training areas.

D. Building the arrow: modelling and shaping these training spaces where the place of each person’s knowledge has its place, where the methodology aims at emancipation, where the trainers adopt a reflective stance, where the group has a fundamental role, associating tools and supports.

E. Ensure that the arrow is pointing in the right direction: after the evaluation of the training as such (which measures the achievement of the objectives), actions to monitor changes ensure that the training is in line with the vision of social transformation initially set out.

Nb. As the initial situation and the vision of social transformation evolve, it is important to re-examine the pedagogical means in function of >> cf. training principles.
