Become a Competent Online Facilitator

Unit Standard 117871: Facilitate learning using a variety of given methodologies NQF 5, 10 credits

Facilitators have been thrown into a virtual training world – but how to keep your learners engaged, content delivered and learning real-time, whilst navigating screen fatigue, breakaway room and tech issues? Our 2½ -day entertaining programme is chock-a-block with role pays, conversations, examples and light bulb moments.

Is that even possible??? Indeed!

Thrive’s interactive virtual facilitator course will take you through the important steps of how to be an entertaining and effective online (& face-to-face) facilitator. We cover the theory at the beginning of the course, allowing us time to create a real-time facilitation environment in order that you can become familiar with the facilitation challenges you may encounter in the future.

This course is designed so that you can complete some of your own POE summative assessment during this 2½ day course, affording you the chance to ask those all important questions about your assessment during the time provided.

Sample templates, tools and documentation will be made available for you to use in your POE in your new role as a facilitator.
