We ask delegates on our courses what they have found useful and why.

Here are some of the responses from the Groupwork skills course.

  • Theories of group work. All the little ideas of warm ups, games etc. Continual explanations. Lots of practical work and pushing us out of our comfort zone. Excellent. Well presented, kept me engaged all the way through, very helpful.
    Diane Girling, Social Prescribing Practitioner, My Script (DHI). March 2017
  • Everything! So many good tips, tricks and advice. Really valuable and motivating, has changed how I will approach groups in future. Had a lot of fun as well! Susan is a great trainer.
    Juliette Simmons, Resettlement and Support Officer, Elizabeth Fry Charity. March 2017
  • Everything! Really helpful and practical - taking away lots of ideas and information with me! Excellent! Great group, great information and great trainer! Thank you!! Really helped and improved my confidence with groups.
    Katie Bradstock, Resettlement and Support Officer, Elizabeth Fry Charity. March 2017
  • All of it! But mostly aims & objectives, games and tips on what to do and recognise if things feel stuck (i.e. the theory). I have really enjoyed the course and learnt so much. Susan was informative and supportive but allowed us to bring our own personalities to the group in a really creative way.
    Tanya Chowdhury, Project Worker, Barnardo's (J3). March 2017
  • All of it, especially Tuckman's and Co-facilitation of groups. Space to share thoughts and feelings. Range of activities. I feel the facilitator held us as a group really well and was reflexive to our needs. It was a really enjoyable course and I feel much more confident about running and co-facilitating groups in the future.

  • Role of facilitator. Dealing with difficult behaviour. Practical exercises and feedback (both watching and doing). Thoroughly enjoyed it. De -mystified stuff. Made me think of a whole range of groups I have been involved with. Made me think about clarity, planning, closing sessions. Thank you very much!
