Age & Opportunity will be running its next Group Facilitation Skills course in February and March 2015. The Group Facilitation Skills course leads to a Level 6 QQI component award in Group Work Theory and Practice (6N3669) under the National Framework of Qualifications (previously known as FETAC/QQI). This programme will equip you with the knowledge, skill and competence you need to plan, deliver and evaluate group work sessions.
The aim of Get Vocal was to strengthen the voices of older people in Ireland by increasing their capacity to make themselves heard. It supported groups and networks to develop ways of speaking out on the issues that matter to them and to spark initiatives that help society to understand their needs and their problems, as well as their hopes. To speak out effectively, groups and networks have built up their ability to advocate on behalf of older people.
Creative Exchanges is a course for anyone leading creative activities with older people in care settings.
