Activity Description

Workshop Contents:

2x Images of Organisations, 2x Workstation activities, Facilitator manual, USB Stick with material for printing (including Participant Workbooks, PowerPoint presentation with key points)

Package Weight: 3.1kg

The style of this workshop is highly interactive and is based on small group practical work, reflection and discussion. The specific interests of the group, and the size of the group, may require the facilitator to apply some flexibility to the programme, therefore the workshop notes here offer suggested timings and review processes. A confident facilitator may choose to alter these timings and use additional or alternative materials.

Presentation materials have deliberately been kept to a minimum. The design of this workshop means that participants are actively involved in exploring their own experience and learning and not simply receiving instruction and trainer input. Therefore, presentation materials are limited to summary of key points, discussion topics and overviews of theoretical models used in the workshop.

Further reading material and suggestions of follow-up activities can be offered as support handouts following the workshop, at the discretion of the facilitator.

buying the materials from you cost me 14% of what it would have cost to send one delegate on an external cost for the same thing and so far we’ve had about 30 people go through the material
