Facilitator Training

During Autumn 2009 and Spring 2010 we trained 9 previous participants of active citizenship learning programmes to become facilitators of the Take Part Learning Programme. We have also trained 15 people to facilitate Voice sessions with voluntary and cpommunity networks and groups, and in March 2010 we trained 19 people to facilitate Echo sessions. This was the first time that Echo faciloitator training had been run. Our facilitators work or volunteer in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Solihull, Tamworth and Birmingham.

Here's what people said about the Voice Facilitator Training:

"It has given me a real sense of direction about where I want to take Voice and how I may deliver it with 2-3 groups – a clearer vision"

"It has been useful hearing what everyone’s up to and taking forward. I'm clearer how I will move things forward in Wolverhampton"

 "It has re-energised me and filled me with new enthusiasm"

 And Echo Facilitator trainees told us:

"The first part of day 1 was a good build up to an introduction to the echo framework. The networking & chance to make connections around strategic buy-in & optional roll out  of echo was great"

"It was very empowering with a decent balance of listening, thinking and contemplating (and hypothetically applying to your organisation)"

We are running each facilitator training course once again in 2010.

The Learning Programme facilitator training starts 0n the 18 of May. This training is only available to individuals who have participated in the active citizenship learning programme.
