Most program offerings follow a similar design based on learning-by-doing principles. They will include a mix of physical training workshops providing tools and techniques to address the challenges faced and see them applied in practice, followed by on the job training, in which participating utilities apply the tools and techniques to their particular situation and develop concrete products (diagnostics, action plans etc.). The principles of blended learning will be applied, i.e. face to face training is accompanied by e-learning material provided within the D-LeaP Academy.
Most programs are offered in two alternative registration options: as utility team, including the participation of several staff members, the provision of remote support between workshops and the development of concrete outputs, and as individual professionals, focused only on the training materials and workshops.
