About this Webinar 

The role of the facilitator is to plan, guide and manage a group of learners to ensure that all their objectives are met effectively, with clear thinking, good participation and maximum buy-in from everyone involved. However, the ideal function and the reality of implementation may be quite different as facilitators navigate their practice in complex environments with learners with equally complex needs. 

There is no doubt that good trainer can have a profound impact on the success of their learners.  This webinar is therefore focused on identifying the elements for achieving high-level facilitation skills. This includes supporting engagement, developing learner independence, and concentrating on reflective and continuous improvement practices, all within the backdrop of a vocational education and training (VET) context.

Alignment: This webinar presents some of the course content for the Unit of Competency TAEDEL502 Provide advanced facilitation practice, which is a core unit in the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and an elective unit in the TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Facilitating in complex environments to learners with complex needs
  • Develop learner independence through facilitation
  • Ways to reflect on and improve practice.
