About the Event

PATH Planning has been used around the world for over forty years as a reliable and effective method of assisting people to create their vision of a good life and then work out how to achieve this. PATH has been successfully used in a variety of environments including education, social services, direct service provision, community groups, faith communities and business.

This two day workshop will provide you with all of the fundamentals of PATH planning and equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to go home and use PATH with the people you support. It is a hands on workshop. Participants will learn all elements of PATH including how to get the right people into the room, process facilitation, graphic facilitation, managing group dynamics and how to ensure each session is positive, possible and inspires people to take action.

The workshop is being organised by Goldfields School in Paeroa as an in-house event for staff. There are limited places available for other interested parties. Registration will be essential.
