Approx. 27 hours contact time – broken up into convenient bite-sized chunks that can easily be scheduled into busy diaries!

Each cohort is capped at x25 to allow for more voices to be heard and a higher quality of conversation / participation levels.

For the benefit of collaboration and diversity of thought, we have a cap at 4 participants from the same organisation; any further individuals who would like to join a cohort can secure space(s) on the next available programme.

Delivered via Zoom with each training module lasts half a day,  with one hour group discussion in between.

We will not be recording the training so everyone is able to share openly throughout.

We will ask you to complete some feedback surveys for us and the Facet5 Personal Profile but otherwise there is no ‘coursework’ as such outside of the training that is required. We will provide you with further learning resources for interest and further development but this is completely at your free will to choose whether to and when you wish to take advantage of them. 

As this is an online programme we may have participants spread across many regions (and countries potentially), however, if there is an opportunity to meet participants from your locale we highly encourage you to connect in person where possible.
