This article extends previous theoretical work done in the area of empowerment in learning to empowerment in managerial training in education. The focus is on learning environment which are developed and within which empowerment occurs. Two such cases are described. The description includes that of the subject matter learned, the teaching methodology used and the learning outcomes. Outcomes appear to be valuable regardless of the empowering environment so long as the latter is designed to enhance learning by having trainees exposed to practice. What is most exciting about this effort is that not only skills are acquired effectively but also new knowledge is generated as part of the empowered training outcomes.
