Training 1.3


We offer hands-on training courses for professionals working in International Cooperation.

Our training courses promote experiential learning. 'Learning by doing' is the most important aspect of SLE's training and teaching philosophy. Case studies, roleplaying, teamwork and many other methods create a learning environment in which participants can bring their own experience and link it to new topics and applications.
