PBSGL Facilitator Training

PBSGL facilitators are the backbone of the programme. Each group functions more or less 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.


Training and support are provided for each facilitator. The training is a one day course, which starts with tea/coffee at 9.30 am for a 10 am start and will finish at 5 pm, lunch will be provided. The course is free of charge and is enjoyable and informative.
