Learning for life

Training Session

Our learning programmes are designed to empower and equip people within faith communities to be peacemakers.

We believe that everyone has within them the gifts to bring a spirit of reconciliation to others. We want our ‘learning for life’ programmes to support you on this journey.

What is the format of a learning programme?

We offer a range of courses, seminars and workshops shaped to suit the group with whom we are working. We craft these sessions to enable people to leave with a clearer understanding of conflict, some skills in navigating difference and renewed sense of hope in what is possible. We seek to work in a way that is accessible and encourages transformation in each of us.

Who might use a learning programme?

We recognise that many in faith communities are highly skilled and gifted across a range of facilitation and conflict transformation work. There are also many who have had no formal training in this work.

Our aim is to accompany and support you – whatever your level of previous learning or experience. We seek to offer you opportunities for deepening your existing knowledge and developing your skills.

Who delivers the learning programmes?

Members of our Team – supported by staff and external contributors – deliver our programmes. Working in pairs or small groups, these individuals are skilled in understanding conflict and providing support to others. We provide supervision for them during and after all work, as well as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and support.
