Elements was formed in 1991, originally running a range of programmes around leadership, management and team development along with other specialised related programmes such as 360 degree feedback, observation and feedback skills and internal consultancy training.
In 1994 Elements changed to focus solely on facilitator development training. This happened in response to client requests and the realisation that our very particular skills enabled us to develop others' skills in working with groups in organisations.
Over the years Elements has been a partnership of various people including Nick Eve, Rowena Chapman, Clive Oxford, Adrian Wilcox, Sheila Ashley and Susanna Piohtee. Rowena is now at Birkbeck College, Adrian is now a senior manager with MIND, Susanna is now working back within an organisation and Clive and Sheila are now concentrating on their clinical work. At the moment Nick Eve is running Elements on his own.
The Facilitator’s Development Programme has grown out of all this experience and learning. It has been running highly successfully since 1994, in a continuously evolving form, in both the UK and abroad (Denmark, Germany, India, Russia, Spain, Austria and Thailand).
Well over 1,000 participants have attended the programme since it began in 1994.
The FDP (a four day masterclass in groupwork) is recognised by ILM (The Institute of Leadership and Management). You'll receive a certificate from the ILM plus 12 months studying membership. Elements National Centre No: 004814.
The Facilitator's Development Programme was first run in Sept 1994 for NatWest Insurance Services.
It has been running continually since then and well over 1,000 facilitators have now completed the programme, it has been held all over the world.
