Developing Facilitation Skills for Trainers and Educators

The 15-hour Facilitator Masterclass is aimed at anyone who is involved in teaching, training, development and educating others. Facilitation skills are vital in any event that involves people interacting and discussing ideas to promote change.

The workshops will explore the use of participatory approaches to professional development such as team building, gaining participants’ trust, maximizing engagement and fostering collaboration and personal disclosure and many other performative skills.

The main advantages of this bottom-up approach to professional development are firstly, it is participant centered (the issues are real concerns and challenges of the participants), secondly the methodology generates multi-voiced, multi-perspectival dialogue and is focused on finding solutions to real problems and inspiring action and change.

The workshops are structured on tried and proven methodology adapted from Applied Theatre and used for training in community settings, care homes, hospitals and many institutions focusing on personal and professional development.

Participants will receive a ‘Master Facilitator’ certificate at the end of the course.
