Philosophy

Growth is the right of every individual and community, and that embracing change and personal transformation is a prerequisite of growth.

The rich diversity of people should be collaboratively harnessed into a powerful force for social, group and individual development.

Development should focus on the practical change of behaviour which is a result of exposure to new information that impacts on the beliefs, values, attitudes and thus behaviours of the learner. This is best brought about by establishing in an adult learning fashion the benefit of belief in, and behaviour towards a new way of doing things.
