PBSGL facilitators are the backbone of the programme. Each group functions independently, meeting when and where they wish, studying modules chosen by the group. The arrangement and facilitation of meetings, and recording of activity, is done by the facilitator.
PBSGL thrives on having 'peer facilitators'. The facilitator is not the expert on the topic during a meeting and does not have any more 'importance' in the meetings, than any normal group member. For the same reason, in the GPST groups, all the facilitators are GPSTs.
PBSGL offer facilitator training on various dates throughout the year and dates are listed below. There is no charge for an individual to attend the training and the day runs from 9.30 for a 10am start and finishes at 5pm. Lunch is provided.
Before you request to attend Facilitator Training, please consider the following:
The timing of participation in the training is designed so that once the course is completed newly trained facilitators are ready to immediately move into the facilitator role with an identified group;
If there is a plan to start a group, or take on a facilitator role within an existing group sometime in the future, participation in the facilitator training would be best delayed until nearer that time;
If the purpose is to find out more about PBSGL then a telephone conversation with one of the national leads would be a best initial step. Contact for further details –
