The programme will help you to:

  • explore what is known from research about effective facilitation.
  • develop an understanding of adult learning and the role of the facilitator.
  • practise a range of facilitation styles and techniques.
  • offer an opportunity for self assessment and peer assessment against the UCL Institute of Education Facilitator Competency Framework.

Participants engage in two full days of face-to-face sessions, interspersed with focused study tasks. Sessions combine bursts of theory with practical activity. An essential feature of this programme is the use of the IOE Facilitator Competency Framework which enables participants to assess their own facilitation skills and seek constructive feedback. Sessions also provide participants with a variety of readings and information about evidence-based approaches to adult learning to enhance their understanding of effective facilitation.
