Certificate in Facilitation

Facilitation is a craft that is increasingly required across a variety of workplaces, sectors, and roles.

Groups can present a myriad of challenges. More and more people are needing to come together to work with complexity, change and uncertainty. The challenges of today require more than a paint by numbers approach to facilitation.

A Metavision approach to facilitation explores the innate solutions embedded in group tensions to reveal more sustainable ways forward. Our approach is sensitive to the needs of each unique situation and trains you to be nuanced and adaptive as a facilitator.

See below for course structure, dates and costs. Note there is a discount for businesses registering 3 or more staff members and Metavision Alumni, please enquire with us for payment details.

We are also accepting enrolment into just Phase 1 of the course. Following completion of Phase 1 there is an option to continue with the course, however, it requires commitment to the final 2 phases. Entry will not be accepted mid-way though the course.
