Teacher training Course at AWOL in Wamboin by Dynamics Groups (only 25mins from Canberra) immediately after the APC.

Dates:Monday 23th April till Lunchtime Saturday 28th April
Venue: AWOL, Another Way Of Living, Wamboin, NSW

Teachers:  Robin-clayfield

The course equips people with the understanding and skills of what is ‘best practice’, ‘leading edge’ learning and facilitation methods through immersion and practical hands on experiences.

It models and creatively empowers participants to create their own Dynamic Groups through putting together all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of what is important and often essential for effective learning and group work to be successful. This aspect probably makes it the most holistic learning methodology around.

A huge ‘toolbox’ is built and expands throughout the course, full of creative processes, ‘glue processes’, all kinds of appropriate and useful processes.

The things that really set it apart from other learning methodologies and courses is the interactive learning environment, the creative processes and the underlying commitment to the empowerment of every person and the group as a whole.

Robin Clayfield is an internationally acclaimed facilitator, educator, author and social change practitioner who regularly facilitates courses in Australia and overseas. She is best known for training and coaching a diverse cross-section of leaders, facilitators and educators to effectively engage their audiences through creative, interactive processes and innovative learning models.

About the price:

SLIDING SCALE

The aim of a sliding scale is to make a course more accessible for people who are keen to attend but would not consider doing so due to insufficient expendable income. These people are in effect partly ‘sponsored’ by those more ‘endowed’.

A sliding scale typically increases the number of participants, providing more guarantee that the course will run. The diversity of people attracted commonly make it a more dynamic learning experience for all. Holding trust that in the mix the ‘break even’ point will at least land in the middle of the range, the organisers are asking that participants consider paying as generously as they are able to.

The top end of the scale is for people earning good wages (generally qualified professional people) or people who independently have good passive incomes. The bottom end is typically for non wage earners, beneficiaries, pensioners, students, and people on relatively low wages. And there is everything in between those two poles. You determine your own position on the scale. Its about honesty and integrity. No questions are asked nor opinion given.
