All VPSL levels share the same 5 core components or “pillars”:
- Emotional Intelligence
- Management Functions
- Leadership and Decision-Making
- Team Building and Influence
- Strategic Process.
However, the learning pillars are addressed in differing approaches, based on participant professional experience. Andrological learning models are deployed using self-directed readings, seminar/lecture settings, and individual presentation-making, and small-group work. Specific agency issues and agency documents are frequently used as part of the program goal: relevancy to the learning partner agency.
