The main characteristic of non-formal education are: participants are placed at the centre of the learning process and not the teachers, who instead take the role of facilitators or those who try to involve all the members of the group.
This approach is made possible thanks to the use of methodologies centred on:
– active participation,
– maximum possible interaction of the participants in the training process,
The non-formal approach is suitable for international cooperation and cultural exchanges as the participants become more aware that the diversity which can be found in all levels of society can be seen as a resource to be exploited. Furthermore, according to the perspective of non-formal education, any activity can be used for educational purposes.
The training processes take place through various and dynamic activities that determine a wide spectrum of stimuli, encouraging the subject to learn in different ways according to different approaches.
Several factors must be taken into account to implement the previous mentioned activities:
– group of participants: socio-cultural composition
– topics focused on achieving certain set goals
– expected results by comparison
– physical location: suitable structures and spaces
– time: avoiding haste, implementing the debriefing
