Revolutionise the way you do training!

Do you want to revolutionise the way you do training, while learning loads about yourself along the way? I might have just the thing for you!

Last year we brought Nico Amador and Erika Thorne from 'Training for Change' over to run 2 highly successful ‘Training For Trainers’ workshops. These attracted trainers, facilitators and campaigners from across the sector and from many different movements and really did help many of participants to revolutionise the way they do training. Here’s what one participant said:

“The facilitation of the course is gentle, probing, and creative; the learning is deep, collective and challenging; the facilitators are magicians. I've gained so many ideas for designing and facilitating workshops and for working collaboratively, and developed new language, and a world-shifting understanding around power and group dynamics.”

After this hugely successful visit, Nico and Erika will be returning to the UK in March 2017  to run another 4 day workshop, and this time I'll be joining their team too. The workshop is designed to help take your training skills to the next level, and help you improve the way training is done in your group, organisation or workplace. As well as that, because of the style of training, you might just learn a lot about yourself along the way. Here are some more things last year’s participants said about the course:

“ I'd recommend the course to anyone (and in fact, I do!). The course has quite literally changed my life: I don't just feel like a better, stronger, more skilled, and more aware facilitator, but a better, stronger, more skilled and more aware friend, colleague, human being. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.”
“It was an amazing experience! I learned so much about myself, especially how to to value myself. Above all I learnt how to create spaces where we can really push ourselves and those we train beyond our boundaries.”

‘Training For Change’, are a group based in the USA who for over 20 years have been training those working for social change. They have led hundreds of workshops and trained thousands of people all over the world. They use an approach called direct education which is all about empowering the group and creating learning spaces where it’s ok to take risks. You can find out loads more about that here.

Today the approach and methodology we use to run Campaign Bootcamp is based off this approach  We aim to create a space where learning can happen whoever you are and whatever background you come from. We’re pretty confident it works and that our training is better because of it. We’ve been working with Turning The Tide to make this training happen and we’re all really excited to have the chance to bring these incredible trainers back to the UK.

So if this seems like your thing and you’re excited to revolutionise the way training happens in your group, organisation or workplace then read on for all the details and how you can apply.
