Course Description

These 11 units of core curriculum provide a step-by-step approach to facilitation. Each unit contains several topics that will help you achieve the overall unit objective.

Pre course- three days Facilitation Training face to face- preparation:

  • Complete all three FAP lanes – FF, CC and WTT
  • Familiarise yourself with the videos and slide decks- how to access them for delivery
  • Prepare your allocated UNITS – (one for Phase 1 and one for Phase 2) that you will deliver during the training- refer to the Facilitator Manuals
  • Locate (in the Facilitator Manual) and prepare your Experiential learning cycle exercise
  • Refer to the Kolb cycle for the theory behind the Experiential Learning cycle (ELC)
  • Create a lesson plan for yourself- refer to the full outline in the Facilitator Manual to achieve this outcome.
  • Read through the Facilitator Feedback template- this is the document that will be used both for self-assessment and for feedback purposes

This program is entirely self-paced, so you may review previous units as often as you like before moving to the next concept. However, the maximum allowed time frame for completion is four weeks from beginning the course, to completing the final task. There will be an assessment at the end of units six and 11 to measure understanding of the principles. Each assessment must be passed with a minimum of 90% to advance to the next step.

Once the online course is completed, you will attend the live Facilitator Education conducted through your local office or organization.

If you need additional assistance or have questions as you progress through the course, please reach out to your project directors, facilitator instructors or The Pacific Institute support team.
