Facilitation Introduction Course

The approach of the workshop is “learning by doing”. Participants will learn facilitation through experience, being facilitated by an experienced facilitator first and then given the opportunity to facilitate the group and be evaluated. The workshop will be a good balance of theory and practical. No prior knowledge is necessary to participate in this course.
