Formation Day for Formators – High Quality Facilitation & Training

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


It’s often challenging to find formation programs for formators to grow their own skills, not the shaping of content, which is always context-specific, but processes and honing skills of cultivating deep understanding and learning for those with whom they minister. Formators come to formation for mission from various pathways with different skill sets; often, they can only develop their skills by diving into the actual practice of running programs.

Checking for Understanding’s engaging program, led by Pip McIlroy, is designed to be inclusive, catering to formators from all adult education contexts within the Catholic Church. Whether you’re a newcomer to leading adult education or an experienced formator looking to challenge your own skills and practice, this event is for you. We believe that the diversity of our participants will enrich the learning experience for everyone.

Great Formation needs great facilitators!
