UNESCO-IHE provides Tailor-made training and advisory services according to your requirements.Tailor-made training caters directly to the needs of each client. This means that courses can be organized for groups of various sizes, from one or several organizations, sectors or regions. They can be designed to upgrade knowledge and skills, to introduce new technologies, or to strengthen sector performance, to name but a few options.
The training can vary in length and depth, ranging from a course lasting several days, to a tailored MSc programme in which regular components are mixed with case studies and modules requested by the client.
Tailor-made training can be delivered on-site, or based at UNESCO-IHE in Delft, or a combination of the two.
A mixture of training instruments are used, including lectures, workshops, group work, presentations, role-plays, case studies and study tours to project sites throughout Europe or in the region where the training takes place.
