We develop people, improve performance and deliver results.
Development Training International (Dti) is a regional organization within SADC and headquartered in the Kingdom of Swaziland. As a full member of SADC, Swaziland holds the protocol as the destination of training for all member states within the region, and this perfectly places our institution as the base for absorbing delegates within the block. By this recognition and acceptance, many ministries, whose list is included in their brief, have unequivocally destined almost all their training requirements to Dti over the past years. Since then, our impact within the SADC region has widened to include development training programmes across Africa and beyond. Our challenge in this millennium is to be part of the premier training frontier for the delivery of customized and effective training methodologies for the region and the continent. Dti training policies are guided by both national and international training policy standards.
At Dti, we use a strategic practical training approach to re-enforce adult learning principles and cross group experiences and participation. Each course is based on a series of practical exercises. In line with the adult learning principles, maximum use is made of syndicate exercises, case studies, field trips, role playing, management games, and plenary sessions; training videos and video playbacks, as well as action-planning. Participants are encouraged to be directly involved in analysing and solving simulated managerial problems. In addition, the integral aspects of each course encourage participants to develop written action plans, which commit them to solving a workrelated problem on return to their duty stations.This process develops a high level of confidence and skills to deal with actual problems in their own workplace. Our programmes ensure that:
Training is directly relevant to participants’ needs and through development and implementation of action plans, we will assist them make positive organizational impact.
- Personal training needs are identified before the start of each programme, and our detailed plans are adapted to take these into account.
- Programmes include new management skills and innovative approaches to delivering services.
