ICA:UK’s most popular Group Facilitation course.

This is our core course, taken by more than 200 people each year. You will learn the theory of the Technology of Participation methods and practice using them in a supportive learning environment. The course is interactive and fun, and 93% of Group Facilitation Methods participants rate the course 8/10 or higher.

This course offers:

  • Two versatile Technology of Participation (ToP) techniques for structuring group conversations that work, and making group decisions that will turn into action
  • Interactive course design so that you develop skills, share experiences and gain an in-depth understanding of the principles behind the methods
  • More than 50 years of ICA experience in community development, consensus-building, and participation
  • Recognition by the ILM. Participants are eligible for an ILM Development Award.
