This interactive course will look closely at the roles a facilitator may play and how a facilitator’s role will encourage long term community development. It will build the confidence of anyone keen to be a good facilitator and give them a solid basis on which to develop their own skills.
Local meetings and engagement processes can too often be un-involving, unproductive and even confrontational. Good facilitation can help tackle these problems and help people to make local discussion and planning an enjoyable and productive process.
It is also important for the development of better policy and practice, for understanding local needs and developing more sustainable communities.
