Front Line Facilitators is our highly successful creative practitioner programme for people aged 18+, offering advanced hands-on experience in creative facilitation and the chance to develop key transferable skills. 

Front Line Facilitators is made possible thanks to generous support from The Old Vic Impact Fund.

Programme and workshops

Over 12 sessions, you will experience practical facilitation training from The Old Vic Education & Community team and guest creative practitioners as you learn about different workshop delivery practices. 

Areas of training will include:

  • Communication and presentation
  • Leadership
  • Practical facilitation skills
  • Writing and creating workshop plans
  • Behaviour Management
  • CV and interview skills

This free programme will help you hone your own delivery style and build a toolkit of techniques and exercises. Your training will culminate with you devising and delivering your own workshop alongside your fellow Front Line Facilitators. All facilitators will be paid a fee for their final workshops.

To support this skills development, you will observe an Old Vic Education & Community workshop, connect with an Old Vic mentor and watch an Old Vic production.
