Facilitator Training for IPF or Successful Learning
Value = $7,000 - $12,000 (depending on location)
Time = 3 full days
Parents Australia will provide face-to-face training for up to 16 people (parents and others) to enable them to confidently present the full set of learning circles/workshops in their local school(s), early childhood centre(s) and other community locations.
A highly experienced trainer will first step participants through each component of the selected program and provide information on the key themes, learning points and activities; how to promote inclusive learning and facilitate dynamics and dialogues in peer-led learning; and how to balance presentation elements (content, story, timing). Participants will then be guided and coached in small teams to prepare and present selected topics within the four learning circles/workshops.
As graduates of the training program move on to present workshops in their communities, Parents Australia will continue to support them through online mentoring.
On completion, participants will be issued with an accredited trainer certificate. This means they will be authorised (with some conditions) to present the learning circles/workshop they trained in, initially for 12 months.
