This course has been co-created by a group of Man Met staff, freelancers and entrepreneurs who are experts in facilitating interactive and engaging workshops. They’ve pooled their knowledge and experience to create a comprehensive self-study kit that will help you become an engaging workshop facilitator. 
At the heart of this course is the belief that anyone can learn to facilitate engaging workshops. Whether you’re a seasoned professional looking to brush up on your skills or a beginner just starting out, this course will provide you with the tools and techniques you need to deliver workshops that are informative, interactive, and inspiring.

Throughout the course, you’ll learn how to design and deliver workshops that are tailored to your audience, using a range of techniques to keep participants engaged and motivated. You’ll also learn how to manage group dynamics, handle difficult participants, and create a positive and supportive learning environment. 

By the end of this course, you’ll have a workbook of skills to draw upon, revisit, check against, and reflect on as you begin your journey as a facilitator. We want you to see your confidence to design and deliver workshops grow as you progress through this workbook. We hope this growing confidence will then inspire and engage any participants that you go on to work with.

You’ll be able to create a positive learning environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and growth. 

Upon completion of this self-study pack, you can apply to attend in-person training to further develop your skills.
