Welcome to the Facilitation skills course. The term facilitation is broadly used to describe tasks that are assisted, or any activity which makes tasks for others easy.  A facilitator guides a group through a process without becoming involved in the content, and needs to keep the group on track to achieve the agreed objectives. This online course will look at appropriate occasions on which to employ facilitation, and examine the key skills required to be an effective facilitator.
