When Dreams Change Facilitator Training

When Dreams Change aims to enable parents and carers to reflect on their experience of having a child or young person with additional needs, and to become more of the person they have been created to be. You can train to be a Facilitator of this course and support parent and carers in your local area: 

‘It dared me to dream about things not just for my child who has additional needs but for myself as well.’ – When Dreams Change Attendee

‘This parent who is sitting next to me they’re feeling the same things that I’m feeling, that really made me feel part of a group. – When Dreams Change Attendee

By becoming a When Dreams Change Facilitator you will be able to access our online and printed material in order to run When Dreams Change as many times as you’d like to within your locality. The training will involve whole course teaching, group discussions (via break-out rooms if training is virtual), and workshop activities. Here is what previous facilitators have said about the training: 

‘A great course – delivered in a lovely relaxed style. The content is excellent and there is a good balance of listening and watching and interactive and reflective activities. I think it works well encouraging facilitators to complete each of the course activities and reflect on how that might work for participants. It was also good to have an activity to complete away from the screen.’ – Facilitator Training Attendee

‘I loved that it was run by a mother and daughter – felt really special and personable. I feel that it has taught life skills for communication and discussion rather than just applicable to When Dreams Change and work. Really insightful.’ – Facilitator Training Attendee
