Marketing Text The pre-tests provide first hands-on experience with the new methodology and thus are a basis for the adaptation and acceptance of the methodology within the target groups of VET organizations, trainers and SMEs.
Description After a method presentation which was realized in the introduction workshops in each country the partner organizations identified two SMEs for the Soufflearning pre-tests.
Target group SMEs, trainers
Positive findings: The rhythm of the trainings suits better in the daily activity of the company. Turnover was increased. A solution for problems with specific clients was found. Personal contact between trainer, employer and employee gives strong identification with the initiated process.
Weak points: Negative attitude of trainees can affect the whole training. This direct method might reveal personal weakness and thus causes fear to participate. When no customers are in the shop during the training the trainer needs to be ready for alternative training ideas. A lot of time is requested to fully implement the methodology in a training situation in a company - more than initially expected.
The exchange of experiences between the project partners and trainers was very important.
Area of application Daily practice in SMEs
