The Training aspect of MENCAFEP’s work has developed over the years of MENCAFEP’s existence. It was primarily set up to deal with MENCAFEP’s staff training needs. As the programme and staff have developed, and with word spreading of the unique work that was taking place. It was decided to open up the project as a training resource for other people interested in working with disabled children in the way MENCAFEP has developed its systems.

Trainees have come from all over Sri Lanka, South Asia and Europe, from 1 weeks training to 3 months training. The training technique used is ‘learning by doing”. It is very much a practical / hands on training course, with the trainee becoming part of the MENCAFEP family, with theory input taking place in the evenings.
