Cascade Approach to Training: Theoretical Issues and Practical Applications in Non - Formal Education
Thanassis Karalis

The second section deals with the requirements for the implementation of the model, while in the third section we present in short four different applications of the model in the field of adult education in Greece. This evidence demonstrates that cascade model is among the best choices when we have to deal with a great number of participants, while also simultaneously facing deficiencies in time and budget.
