March 2018

Please see below for our upcoming range of Facilitation Skills training, accreditation and networking opportunities, ranging from one day events, through to short modular courses and longer Certificate and Diploma programmes.

MAY-JULY Certificate in Facilitation Skills 

The Certificate in Facilitation Skills deepens and extends learning from the Foundations Programme (or equivalent route to Level 1 accreditation) and leads to accreditation at Level 2.  Learning is extended 'outwards' - offering a range of theoretical and practical approaches to underpin effective Organisational Development (OD) - and 'inwards', to a deeper grounding of personal awareness, assurance and skill as a facilitator.  You will be encouraged to stretch your facilitation style in a way that is authentic for you and interrelates your personal, professional and social domains.

The Programme comprises two modules and an accreditation day - 5 contact days in total (£1908 including VAT, some bursaries available).  Attendance on both modules, peer group meetings, supervision and self-study are required for accreditation.   
  • Organisational Impact - 8-9 May
  • Personal Presence - 4-5 June
  • Accreditation Day - 9 July

Our Learning/Taster Days (10am-4pm, £80 for members and £100 for non members, Highfield Park, Hook) are a good way to reconnect, find out more about our way of working and refresh your skills in a peer learning environment.
