February 2017

Our next Learning Day on 6th March will take the form of an Open Day at Highfield Park, Heckfield, Hook.  We will be available between 11-4  so do join us for a chat over coffee, tea or lunch (1-2pm).  There is no charge for either members or non-members - please just let us know if you are planning to drop in. Highfield Park is 10 minutes from Junction 11 of the M4 or Junction 5 of the M3. We would be pleased to meet you and reconnect or introduce ourselves and the work of the Association of Facilitators (AoF).

One of our accredited members, Michael Ashworth, is leading a survey into the state of facilitation in Europe.  He would be very grateful if you could share your views and experiences. All participants will receive a copy of the survey as a thank you. Click here to find out more and take the survey.

We are also very pleased to announce the launch of the second  Advanced Diploma in Transformative Facilitation run by the artgym academy. This is a highly innovative one-year part-time programme designed for experienced practitioners who want to effect positive change and transformation. On successful completion of this programme you will gain dual accreditation with both the Association of Facilitators (Accredited Facilitator up to level 3) and artgym academy (Certified Advanced Practitioner).  To apply or for further information, please contact Louise Austin, Course Director: +44 (0)7985 660 256 or artgym academy on +44 (0)20 7033 3777.  This programme starts in May 2017.

Finally, do sign up for our Foundations Programme (The Facilitator's Toolkit, Group Dynamics and Accreditation) starting in May - see right hand column for dates/links. There are only a few spaces remaining now so do book early to secure a space. 2018 dates will be released soon.
