The Facilitation skills workbook can be used as part of regular training sessions or delivered as a five-day workshop.

Participants will become familiar with the content of several Pillars guides and learn how to adapt their use. They will gain participatory learning skills, understand the qualities and skills of a good facilitator and gain confidence in using Pillars guides with community groups. The training uses participatory methods and role play.

Discussion-based learning using Pillars guides should ideally be facilitated by a group member who is confident about sharing new ideas with others and sensitive enough to listen and draw out the views of all group members. This person should be committed to helping the group achieve its aims more effectively by learning together.
