What does it mean to be a co-facilitator?
Becoming a Saturday Club Co-Facilitator means you will learn how to develop skills around the delivery of workshops. We will touch upon delivery methods, important things to know when leading sessions/lessons/workshops/activities, look at planning a session, and consider ways you can support the lead tutor in the club delivery.
You will then support a lead Club Tutor to run sessions and support a group of 13-16 year olds on Saturdays, on campus, in a discipline area of your choice
What is Saturday Club?
The National Saturday Club is a network of subject specialist clubs for young people, they run all over the country and offer 13-16 year olds free workshops in a subject of their choice.
Manchester Metropolitan has a long history of running Saturday Clubs, starting to deliver the Art & Design club 8 years ago. This year we are embarking on an exciting adventure and will be running 6 clubs in one year. We need students like you to come and support the delivery, bring your wonderful personalities and varied interests, and show young people what it is like to live in Manchester and attend a vibrant university like Manchester Met.
Whether you have experience working with children and young people, or are just interested in the subjects on offer, or like the idea of learning to facilitate workshops, we want to hear from you. Send us an expression of interest, tell us about yourself, your experience, and what you study.
Dates for delivery are still to be confirmed for each club, so these will be released soon and will happen throughout the year. The 2 dates for training are essential, you must be able to attend both training sessions to apply to be a co-facilitator.
