There will be an autumn workshop for active CCI teachers and helpers, and people considering teaching, helping or returning, at Unstone Grange, in the Peak District near Sheffield. Unstone is a beautiful place in peaceful countryside and has hosted co-counselling gatherings for many years. It has beds for 35 people, plus camping space.
This event follows on from the enjoyable and constructive Teachers' workshop at Newmarket in February. Hopefully it will help to strengthen an active network of coco teachers in the UK.
What we'll be doing
The weekend will be run along the usual coco lines, i.e. co-created by the people who attend. It will be able to draw on ideas that surfaced at the teacher weekend in February, as well as new ones. It should be a great opportunity to:
share and develop your coco teaching skills
share ideas on how coco can be promoted and offered to more people
explore what future(s) we see for coco and how we want to make them happen,
and of course
take your own confidence and personal development forward a step or two.
Some themes that arose at the recent Newmarket workshop were:
Increasing diversity in CCI
A vision of CCI in 2020
Using business approaches to grow CCI
Developing and supporting CCI teachers
Please feel free to make suggestions on the booking form for themes or strands you would like, and whether you might lead them.
