Mode of orientation and training
Our trainings are facilitated by a team of professional trainers in the areas of housekeeping, psycho-social orientation, legal and labour market orientation, cultural and social orientation, personal empowerment, hygiene and grooming, occupational health and safety, food hygiene, children, elderly and persons with disabilities (PWDs) care, customer care and interpersonal relations, basic financial literacy and appropriate use of ICT, travel tips and procedures.
A range of methodologies are used and these include; question and answer sessions, experience sharing, debate, group discussions, use of visual aids such as posters, games and videos, brainstorming, demonstrations, practical exercises, case studies and role plays. We also bring on board former migrant domestic workers who have returned, with good and best experience but willing to share with others. The participants are therefore given a chance to learn and to be fully involved in the learning process by keeping them active and allowing them to share their experiences and exchange views.
In addition to quality control purposes daily evaluations are carried out with the participants and a recap on the following day to clarify on areas where more learning is needed. After deployment PLA will| carry out an assessment on how the migrant workers have applied the information from their pre-departure orientation in their work and life.
It is counterproductive to overload trainees with too much information within a short time; this is because the purpose of the training, which is to learn and skill them for migration, would not be achieved. The course is therefore scheduled to be residential for 721 days for each participant. This however, depends on the needs of each group and client.
