Training Methodology

Pre- and Post-training evaluation: it is used to assess the changes of trainees’ skills, knowledge and attitude before and the end of seminar.

Presentation: The trainer will present the subjects whilst participants actively listen, and take notes. Participants will be encouraged to express their comments by asking questions and providing answers from their personal experience.

Group/panel discussion: Participants are assigned to work in small groups through brainstorming, discussion, outlining, selecting and analyzing ideas, which allows participants to contribute their comments and experiences to the whole group. This enables participants to respond and react to each other’s contributions, and allows individuals and groups to engage with and discuss their comments with the class as a whole.

Role Play: Participants will have the opportunity to improve their skills, attitudes, and perceptions in real situations through role-play. Participants are encouraged to be creative, flexible and to act out actual conditions, which will enable participants to express their personal experiences of customer-service situations.
