Creative Facilitation Skills

octagonA facilitator is a person who skilfully assists a group of people to understand their common objectives and to help them learn from one another.

This course will help you to develop facilitation and leadership skills so that you can effectively guide both small and large groups in the future. The course will explore a variety of art forms designed to develop your confidence and will show you a range of interactive techniques to effectively engage with others and manage different group dynamics. 

For those who want to go on to co-facilitate training as part of the Recovery Academy, it is recommended you attend the Train the Trainer course following this programme.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Have explored the leadership/facilitation qualities you already have
  • Have developed in the areas you wanted to work on
  • Discussed different situations that you may encounter when working with other people
  • Developed strategies to overcome difficult moments.

“I loved everything, everyone was so warm and kind, I felt so comfortable to participate in everything, loved that there were no slides and we experienced everything first hand.”
