    More Information:
    Successful Facilitation Skills

    All Activia training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure they provide up to date and constantly improving standards of content. Our Supervisor Skills training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

    Class sizes

    Maximum class size for courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.

    Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

    Private (closed) classes can be booked at our centres, subject to the same maximum class sizes, if you want to use our facilities for your training.

    For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 15 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.

    How to book
    • Decide on the Supervisor Skills course you want, the date(s) you can attend, and the number of delegates involved
    • Also decide whether you want training at your offices or at one of our centres.
    • You can use the Speedy Quote option to get a quick price, and to book online
    • if at any time you want help or advice, or you want to book on the telephone, just call us on 0845 230 6150 to speak to one of our friendly training advisors

    Note: With non-credit card bookings you must sign and return a Booking Form before we can confirm your training.

    Also note: If you are a private individual you must pay by credit card at the time of booking.

    The confirmation process
    • Your place is allocated, along with workbooks (and lunches if it's at our centre)
    • You receive an official confirmation, with joining instructions (and directions if it's at our centre)
    • You receive a VAT invoice

    Note: Please allow 1 - 2 working days for your confirmation and invoice.

    What happens on the day

    If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual.   Refreshments and a free buffet lunch will be provided, but please note that, as a training company who relies on caterers, we are unable to reliably provide for differing dietary requirements, so if you are in any doubt then please bring your own.   The timetable is as follows:

    • 9:15: - Arrival time
    • 9:30: - Training starts
    • 11:00: - Mid-morning break
    • 1:00: - Lunch break (one hour)
    • 3:15: - Mid-afternoon break
    • 4:30: - Wrap up

    Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes can be shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !

    For training at your offices, this itenerary can be varied by prior arrangement.

    What you get

    With your Supervisor Skills training course from Activia, you get a free workbook, so you can review and revise afterwards to reinforce your knowledge.

    Every delegate on a Successful Facilitation Skills course also gets an Activia Training Attendance Certificate.
