Groupwork Solutions provides project management for the development of creative and valuable group work programs for a wide range of situations and target groups. These programs are mapped to meet the Institute of Group Leaders Program Endorsement Standards.
Many training or group work programs are full of wonderful and valuable ideas. However, they are primary written using a didactic process where it is the group leader’s responsibility to pass this information onto the passive group members. Social psychology indicates that many people have a relatively short attention span and start to think about other topics after seven minutes unless group leader’s actively re-engage their interest.
Groupwork Solutions can ensure your program integrates with all the participant’s learning styles (reflecting, thinking, feeling, acting) and also complies with the Institute of Group Leaders Group Work Program Endorsement Criteria (see www.igl.org.au).
