Our Training for Trainers Programme

Do you want to revolutionise the way you do training, while learning loads about yourself along the way? Then we might just have the thing for you.

For the last three years we have been running a Training for Trainers programme, bringing Nico Amador, Matthew Armstead and Erika Thorne from ‘Training for Change’ over to run four highly successful trainings. These attracted trainers, facilitators and campaigners from across the sector and from many different movements and really did help many of participants to revolutionise the way they do training. 

Here’s what some participants said about the training:

Training for Social Action Trainers was beyond incredible! It gave me the tools and confidence to run much better and more transformative trainings. The organisers carefully select participants to create a nurturing environment where everyone is given the care and attention they need. I highly recommend going on this training – it will absolutely change the way you deliver training for the better!  

“The facilitation of the course is gentle, probing, and creative; the learning is deep, collective and challenging; the facilitators are magicians. I’ve gained so many ideas for designing and facilitating workshops and for working collaboratively, and developed new language, and a world-shifting understanding around power and group dynamics.”

‘Training For Change’, are a group based in the USA who for over 20 years have been training those working for social change. They have led hundreds of workshops and trained thousands of people all over the world. They use an approach called direct education which is all about empowering the group and creating learning spaces where it’s ok to take risks. You can find out loads more about that here.

Today the approach and methodology we use to run Campaign Bootcamp is based off this approach.  We aim to create a space where learning can happen whoever you are and whatever background you come from. We’re pretty confident it works and that our training is better because of it. We’ve been working with Turning The Tide to make these trainings happen and we’re all really excited to have the chance to bring these incredible trainers to the UK.

Here’s some more things participants have said about the trainings.

“ I’d recommend the course to anyone (and in fact, I do!). The course has quite literally changed my life: I don’t just feel like a better, stronger, more skilled, and more aware facilitator, but a better, stronger, more skilled and more aware friend, colleague, human being. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”

“Training for Change really was life-changing for me. It built my confidence as a trainer, taught me about group dynamics and different personality types, and allowed me to really experience the possibility of creating a counter-culture within a training space. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
