Facilitator Short Course


Facilitation is complex process intended to impart knowledge and understanding. Good facilitators need to know how to read a target audience and plan their facilitation approach accordingly. They also need to design suitable activities and manage classroom dynamics.

Traditionally facilitation has taken place in a bricks and mortar classroom, but increasingly facilitators are required to conduct training online using a variety of methods and platforms.

This short course has been designed to address both classroom and online facilitation methodologies, thereby making it a good choice for facilitators who plan to use multiple methods of delivery to convey their message.

People credited with this unit standard are able to:

  • Plan and prepare for facilitation;
  • Facilitate learning – both in a classroom and online;
  • Evaluate the success of both the learning and facilitation intervention.

The training is based on the unit standard: NQF level 5, credits 10, SAQA ID 117871

All courses are tailor-made and provided in-house to address contextual requirements.
