Training and facilitation skills are key to successful organising, campaigning and movement building.

What does the training cover?

As a participant you will:

  • Understand the key principles of effective workshop design and experiential education methods;
  • Develop awareness of yourself and your strengths as a facilitator;

  • Have the opportunity to take risks, experiment and refine skills in a safe and supportive environment;
  • Gain confidence by receiving feedback from experienced trainers and other participants in a small group setting;
  • Learn skills for working with diverse learners.

Feedback from our Autumn 2018 training: “This was a total blockbuster training. I’d recommend it to anyone with an interest in workshops.

How much does it cost?
