Event Description

Our Facilitation Training course gives you the practical tools and techniques to make your meetings engaging and productive, both on-line and face-to-face.

A unique day of interactive and participatory learning to build your skills and confidence as a facilitator, meeting organiser or workshop leader.

‘Learnt a lot of great techniques’ Helenna Merriot (Westminster Council)

We will look closely at what facilitation is, the role facilitators may play and how facilitating can encourage long term community development. The day will build the confidence of anyone keen to be a good facilitator and give them a solid basis on which to develop their own skills. There'll be guidance and discussion on the different challenges and opportunities for on-line and face-to-face meetings. You’ll take part in engaging exercises and discuss where you might or might not use them. You’ll look at ways to work with people in large and small groups and how and when to leave a group to their own devices. The day covers the practical ‘tools and techniques’ that make meetings work.

‘Extremely helpful with my facilitation’ Ruth Campbell (Waste Aware Scotland)

Learn how to:

  • Plan enjoyable & productive meetings (online & face to face)
  • Discuss pro’s & cons of online vs face-to-face
  • Build a working relationship with an existing organisation or new group
  • Use appropriate tools and techniques (inc., online tools)
  • Work in ways appropriate to different communities
  • Deal with problematic situations
  • Evaluate facilitated processes

New for 2022 – free follow-up session!

Every course now includes a 90mins follow-up session on Zoom. You will have the opportunity to discuss your recent experiences, be given time to practice what you’ve learned, and get feedback.

‘Fantastic!’ Matt Tudge (Brent Homeless Project)

Who should attend this course?

The event will benefit anyone working with groups of people in both online & face-to-face. Whether a novice starting out, or an experienced facilitator wishing to expand on their techniques, the course will provide a valuable insight into good facilitation. This course gives you tools to use during your sessions. Our Advanced Facilitation course looks more at power dynamics, privilege and rank when working with groups.
