Facilitation Skills Training

We provide facilitation skills training with the aim of providing tools and techniques to assist with planning and running effective workshops and meetings. WCL provide facilitators for a range of events and have designed and delivered many hundreds of workshops in the public and private sectors. Our training has been developed to share a range of tools and techniques that have been proven to work in different contexts, and to share the tips and tricks we have learned for planning and managing workshop sessions.

We can meet you and your team to shape the content of the training and ensure it will deliver both the team objectives and individual aims. We would then develop a proposed outline for the training - an example training outline is included below.
