Experiential Development Programmes are an immersive learning process that achieve impressive results.
Put simply experiential development is learning through experience and reflection. We learn best from experience, and within the format of a bespoke programme graduates are able to undertake controlled practical development projects that allow for rapid trial and error.
The learning that takes place in this format is effective and long lasting as it achieves behaviour change as well as the application of new skills.
DCo design bespoke experiential programmes for graduates that intertwine direct and often practical experience of core skills within a learning environment and subject context.
We focus on connecting the active participation in development projects with a challenging review and reflection process that ensures the learning is centred on the workplace and the opportunities for transition of skills.
Experiential Development Programmes are often run as extended residential experiences and we have the benefit of being able to deliver these at our facility in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
