Resources and On-going Support

We are aware that sometimes the best people to facilitate learning are those with lived experience, who may not have a training background. We have therefore created an infrastructure of support to enable trained facilitators to provide the highest quality learning experiences and outcomes – irrespective of background and prior experience.

Second Chance Learning Academy trained facilitators and partner organisations have access, via the Associate Area of the SCLA site, to a whole range of ‘scaffolding’ to support them so they can focus on quality engagement and delivery.

All the materials and resources to deliver equipped2succeed modules, easily accessible and adaptable:

  • session plans and draft module programmes – with each session designed to meet the needs of all learning needs and preferences
  • powerpoint presentations with facilitator notes
  • activities – to motivate and embed learning
  • hand-outs – a range of materials that can be used flexibly to suit the needs of learners
  • evaluation framework and templates 

Best practice:

  • sample programmes to see how modules may be put together to create development opportunities that best suit learner needs
  • tried and tested ideas and activiities that enagage, inspire and enable learners 

SCLA Facilitator Quality Framework 

We have co-produced a quality framework with facilitators and learners with lived experience that covers every aspect of quality facilitation – including attitudes, thinking and behaviours!  

SCLA Training webinars

All trained facilitators have access to regular webinars, each focused on an area designed to update thinking, understanding and skills. Delivered by our lead trainer, Beverley Burton, and a range of associates and partners, they are accessible live. Recorded webinars are a way of facilitators accessing the support they need, as and when they need it. 

SCLA Q & A sessions

All trained faciliators have access to regular Q&A sessions, each focused on an area or community of need. These are designed to support facilitators who are likely to be working with some of the learners most in need in our communities. They provide on-going support for those working remotely and in challenging circumstances.

SCLA Trainers’ Forum

Our on-line forum is designed to enable trainers to share best practice and work creatively together to find solution.
