About Facilitation Skills for Experiential Learning

Our course is a highly engaging, hands-on (IRL) course designed to empower professionals from a range of sectors to master the art of ‘facilitation’. 

Facilitation is: “… the act of helping other people to deal with a process or reach an agreement or solution without getting directly involved in the process”. This is a very specific skill that underpins other learning approaches such as teaching, coaching, instructing and mentoring. 

The course focuses on experiential learning via a range of command tasks and problem-solving activities. Trainees will therefore experience the emotions, behaviours and outcomes by going through the process. 

Peer mentoring and reviews promote shared and collective agreement and lead to improved performance. This can be applied at many levels, for individuals, small teams or large organisations. It can also be used for team development and leadership.

Facilitation Skills for Experiential Learning is delivered over six hrs (usually one day but with capacity to be flexible according to need).

All course materials and resources will be provided by Gamechanger lead facilitators.

Testimonials and feedback

What do participants think of the facilitation skills training course?

“The most engaging, relevant and important CPD I have attended. The links between the challenging subject matter (CCE) and the Gamechanger Challenge activities are obvious and clearly explained through the experiential learning process. I can’t wait to start delivering this programme for our most vulnerable adults and young people. I can also see how the resources develop emotional resilience and mental toughness and can be implemented across the whole school for all learners, young people and adults alike.”

“Excellent training – best CPD I’ve attended. Very useful to reflect on the emotions and activities as a process. Already thinking of ways to include in lessons / other activities. A very useful resource with many applications, just what our young people need. Thank you for a useful, fun and reflective day.”

“Greg’s delivery was excellent and tuned to our requirements. Following a series of engaging and thought-provoking exercises it was clear that the day was a great success. Many interpersonal barriers broken down and clarity achieved towards the company’s objectives. Following on from the development day there has been a marked improvement in team performance and communication. With all the team objectives now aligned within the company we look forward to further growth and success. Thanks Greg – We look forward to working with you again.”
