Front Line Facilitators

Our highly successful creative practitioner programme is for young people aged 18 – 25, offering advanced hands-on experience in creative facilitation and the chance to develop key transferable skills.

Over 12 sessions, you will experience practical facilitation training from The Old Vic Education & Outreach 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 your own toolkit of techniques and exercises. Your training will end with you experiencing life as a professional facilitator, as you devise and are paid to deliver your own workshop alongside your fellow Front Line Facilitators.

You will also observe an Education & Outreach workshop, connect with an Old Vic mentor, and watch an Old Vic production.
