The participant will experience the purpose, intention, the building blocks and the added value of the program and the methodology. This allows the participant to start sharing the program from an experience-based place and as a role model.
In addition, the teacher skills (didactics) that are important for sharing this program, creating an optimal pedagogical climate and ensuring the intention of the program will be explored and practiced.


Day 2 of the training is dedicated to the practice. The class format (5 steps) will be experienced and explored, and the participant also receives practical tools to facilitate and implement the lesson plans tailored to the target group.
