24th June 2024, 9.30am - 2.30pm
Open to all

To support a team or a group through a process of development, change, transition or learning requires effective group facilitation skills.

Effective facilitators possess the qualities and skills to work with groups with confidence in order to help the group achieve its goals. Holding boundaries, being empathetic, having knowledge and dealing with conflict and differences are some of the main tasks of a facilitator.

In this workshop we will be looking at:

  • Defining facilitation/facilitator as distinct from teaching/teacher
  • Some theories (and reality!) of the group process including power dynamics and diverse identities within groups
  • The skills of an effective facilitator
  • The qualities of an effective facilitator
  • This course would be suitable for anyone who would like to develop knowledge, skills and confidence in order to facilitate groups.

This workshop will be facilitated in an informative, relaxed and experiential way, so please be open to a little self-exploration and working with others!

I will also be bringing my own learning and experiences from working with groups and would like participants to bring their experiences also.

Minimum of 5 participants.
