Are you interested in learning how to organise training days? Not sure how to run a workshop session? Keen to get more involved with ARA and contribute to your professional development? Then the ARA Facilitators Training Day is for you.

The ARA Training Group are running a FREE training day for training course facilitators on Friday 19th September at The Hive in Worcester. If you are interested in providing training or getting more involved in the ARA, your region or section but don't know where to start then this is the course for you. The course would also prove useful to those who frequently have to present to large groups, or run workshop sessions as part of their job.

This one day course will cover all aspects of organising and running a training event including planning, budgeting, running workshop sessions, use of social media and the basics of events management.

The ARA Training Group is recruiting a pool of facilitators to help run training events across the UK and Ireland. This will be a great opportunity to get more involved with the association, learn new skills and further your professional development. This course is free to ARA members and after attending the course you'll be added to our pool of facilitators who we can call on to help us run the very successful Core Training courses (subject to your availability and travel).

Refreshments and lunch will be provided on the day and the Training Group are able to assist with travel expenses for attending the event.

Sessions and speakers on the day will include:

o Running an ARA Training Event (Lizzy Baker)

o Event Management (Marie Owens)

o Preparing a Budget (Hannah Jones)

o Publicity and Communications (Kathryn Rooke)

o How to Run a Workshop (Jessamy Carlson)

o 'How to Deliver' - Presentation Skills (Marie Owens)

o Using Social Media (Laura Cowdrey)

o 'It Shouldn't Happen to a Training Officer' - roundtable discussion session on preparing for the unexpected!
