This course provides an introduction to a creative approach to group facilitation. It aims to encourage, develop and inspire those with responsibility to lead others through a facilitative process, be it for the purposes of team building, consultation, idea-generation or training.

Throughout 2 x 2.5 hour sessions, we will be using a number of different exercises and games in order to illustrate content. We will also look at group dynamics, communication issues and different learning styles in order to explore how these might be of impact. This course seeks to stimulate your imagination and examples of how to develop a creative approach to group facilitation within your own context.

This course is split over 2 days:

Session 1 : Wednesday 2nd September 10am-12.30pm
Session 2: Wednesday 9th September 10am-12.30pm

Ideal for:
• Creative practitioners working directly with children and/or young people

You will gain:
• New ideas/techniques and ways of running facilitation
• Knowledge to identify own strengths/weaknesses as a facilitator and ways in which you can develop
• A deeper insight into group dynamics, learning styles and ways of maintaining a positive constructive environment for all participants
• An opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other
• A useful selection of resources for further ideas/support
