Educational Means

Our trainings lean on two complementary aspects of educational innovation: a method which structures the learning activities by putting the latest educational advances at the heart of IFP Training‘s strategy, and tools serving the method to guarantee the achievement of objectives within the framework of activities adapted to the professional context.

To allow participants to assimilate and apply new concepts, methods and tools, education is highly interactive and centered on industrial needs. It is based on sessions including conferences by industry experts, case studies, collaborative exercises, the use of computers and equipment when possible.

« Our programs, built on a skills-based approach, assure an effective professional development.»

PEDAGOGICAL ENGINEERING

Educational engineering is related to the choice of contents, lecturers, transmission and learning modes. This part is essential to formalize field experience, technical expertise and theory, and end in the transfer of knowledge, know-how and interpersonal skills.

Active Learning Methods

 

Our approach is collaborative: everyone brings his/her skills and experience. We alternate practical and theoretical sequences in a permanent and effective learning dynamic.

Learners become actors of their training, in a three-actor play: the trainer, the participant and the group.

Each of our trainings leans on a "scenario" which formalizes the cutting in educational sequences, their objectives, tools and learning procedures being used. The purpose is to provide a balance between educational activities and discussions or conferences.
