FACILITATION SKILLS

Facilitation means “making it easier”. Facilitation is a skill that is central to a way of working with people that fosters independence and interdependence. This course is designed to explore the basic concepts and skills associated with supporting people to be active in creating a good life for themselves. Whether with groups or individuals “facilitation” is based on the principles of self determination, flexibility, enabling practice and constructive development.  The course has a focus on developing practical approaches and skills.

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION SKILLS (TUHANA)

Tuhana is a pole used for linking people when they cross a river. The two strongest people stand at each end, and everyone walks across together”  www.tuhana.org.nz

This practical course is based on research carried out by the NZ Federation of Vocational and Support Services (VASS) and SAMS (Standards and Monitoring Services) in 2009. The research looked at what organisations were doing to develop effective practice in the area of supporting people, and provides an opportunity to explore the specific skills and approaches that have been identified locally and internationally as contributing to “good practice” and crucial to facilitating community participation.
