Content
This comprehensive, three-day accredited course is aimed at providing a greater awareness and understanding of participative engagement. Participants will gain a range of skills as well as build confidence in engaging with citizens and the community. Day one will focus on preparing for engagement, the rationale, who to engage with and achieving validity in consultation. The group will begin to look at facilitation skills.

Participants will learn a range of tools and have the opportunity to put some methods into practice. On day three, each participant will demonstrate a participatory method as part of their assessment. The rest of the day will focus on evaluating the results and using data from engagement activities.
