Train the Trainer: Enhanced Facilitation Skills and Methods
To enhance and develop facilitation skills and methods for delivering short workshops at foundation and intermediate levels.
We expect that those who are planning to teach or already teaching communication skills will already have sufficient subject knowledge to credibly teach and demonstrate appropriate communication skills for the level they are delivering. For example:
- Attendance on a 2 or 3 Day Advanced Communication Skills Training Course (or equivalent) within the last 5 years
- Knowledge of an evidence-based theory or model of communication
- Evidence-based key components of effective-communication skills training
- Considerations for course design and delivery
- Competences for delivering effective training
- Experimental training methods
- Establishing and maintaining a safe and productive learning enivornment
Managers, clinicians and educators delivering or planning to deliver communication skills training to health and social care professionals via short workshops.
Participants will recieve a copy of the Maguire Handbook: contains a précis of communication skills research from the past 40 years, evidence-based communication skills and strategies, sample course programmes and step by step guides to experiential teaching methods.
