Training Philosophy and Methodology

Our teaching methodology is manifold:

  • interactive teaching sessions in the classroom
  • independent work through assignments
  • participation in extramural courses
  • group study

Our training philosophy rests on a model of 3 learning fields:

  • Theory: transmission of professional knowledge in all areas of theology
  • Practice: practical work in a church or social institution as an integral part of the training
  • Coaching: yearly modules focusing on areas like discipleship, character and per-sonality development


In 2009, IGW was granted the eduQua-certificate, the leading Swiss quality label for edu-cational institutions.
