FACES – Facilitation Skills
FACE – Facilitation Skills is a Training Course for Youth workers on Facilitation in Youth groups. The TC proposes methods and exercises to boost some of the Skills that a Facilitator should have. It is a very practical learning with a session about designing a workshop and perfoming it.
A good facilitator can make the difference in the approach to a youth group (especially with delicate target groups like migrants, youngsters with educational difficulties, disabilities) and through this TC we want to give the facilitators of our partner organisations a space to reflect on their role and competences and provide them with the necessary tools and methods for their professional development. The role of the facilitator is basically connected with learning, communication, intercultural issues, feedback, and workshop design skills: in these areas he/she must be competent and aware. In our opinion a good facilitator should be first of all aware of his/her own learning styles and recognize these in his/her learning process.
In this TC we want to focus on the role of the facilitator in communications and relationships so as to prevent possible conflicts and violence (verbal and physical) and on new skills like public speaking (useful in social life and in job market).
Participants in the last part of the training will benefit from a session where they will design and perform a workshop. They can count on the trainers’ support and feedback during the TC and on their mentoring for 1 month after the TC, giving them the opportunity to develop quality workshops as output of the TC.
