Facilitation Foundation Certificate

Facilitation Foundation

Facilitation is a common word used in a variety of different contexts. However, ‘being a facilitator’ for a group and ‘facilitating meetings/events’ requires key skills and a deep knowledge of the principles and concepts involved.

This course presents the APMG International Facilitation Foundation materials based on the Process Iceberg® methodology developed by Tony Mann.

This methodology has been applied in a wide variety of organisations and situations. Its pragmatic, practical approach has gained a wide range of adherents in the public, private and charity sectors, both in the UK and internationally.
