About Facilitation Skills Workshop

Facilitator skills

Being a facilitator is the skilful act of helping people through a range of group activities such as meetings, brainstorming sessions or training, with the intention that the individuals and group achieves the specific goals of the session.  The facilitator will, by their presence and input, make things easier for the group and individuals within.

This interactive course gives you the opportunity to learn AND practice facilitation skills with the help and support of an experienced facilitator.

Key Benefits

Increased engagement and group dynamics – a well facilitated meeting or other group session will ensure that everyone’s contribution is valued and considered.

Increased balance in terms of contribution to meetings – The group will be ‘managed’ to ensure that there is a balance of contribution between the more and the less vocal members.

Increased interest in meetings and other group sessions – Employees are more likely to enjoy attending meetings and group sessions if they know that they are going to be effectively run and managed.

Improved goal achievement – The facilitator will have the skills to effectively manage a group to work towards achieving intended goals.

Target Student

    APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) course review

    I completed the PMQ course through IPSO FACTO and they were a pleasure to work with from the moment I first made an enquiry. Every piece of course administration was made simple for me and the classroom facilities were just perfect. The course instructor was professional, knew the subject very well and focused our learning in a practical way to help put it into perspective. Overall, a very professional experience and I would recommend IPSO FACTO as a quality training company. Thank you. [Scott Sellars]

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

    APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review

    The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.
