If you want to become an accredited facilitator this is the course for you.  We teach you how to train others.  Some of the exciting things we cover in class are the 20 methods of facilitation and how to handle 10 difficult types of learners.  You will plan and facilitate a practical session which will be done in class, and you need to facilitate another session on your own afterwards.

Our Accredited Facilitator Course is based on SAQA Unit Standard 117871 – “Facilitate learning using a variety of given methodologies”.  Successful students will be certified on NQF level 5 and awarded with 10 credits.  The course takes place over 3-4 days, depending on the size of the group, during which we cover theoretical and practical work through a simulation in class.

Our courses are based on outcomes-based principles and we focus on small group sessions, which ensure that every student receives individual attention.  We offer courses in Nelspruit, Durban, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth but we travel for groups of more than five students.  All our courses are generic and accepted by all SETA’s and ETQA’s, so it doesn’t matter in which field you work, we cater for everybody.

After the contact session learners are also expected to complete some activities on their own which includes a practical facilitation session and some theoretical questionnaires.  The course fee includes support after the course which can be given through another contact session or telephonically, which ever suits the student best.

Facilitate learning using a variety of given methodologies: NQF 5, 10 CREDITS – SAQA ID NR. 117871

The purpose of this workshop is to address the requirements of Unit Standard “Facilitate learning using a variety of given methodologies” ID nr. 117871, NQF level 5; Credits 10


Plan and prepare for facilitation


Facilitate learning


Evaluate learning


Learners are required to participate fully in group and individual learning activities throughout the workshop. Learners are also encouraged to identify and express their specific learning needs and to contribute freely from their own experience. During the four day contact session, the facilitator also focus on change management and motivational aspects, as we’ve identified these issues as key areas of SAQA and implementing the NQF.


During the workshop, participants will be briefed on how to prepare and present a Portfolio of Evidence for assessment against Unit Standard 117871, NQF level5, Credits 10

As soon as a candidate assessor is found to be competent, and once Equipt Training has received endorsement – including your official registration number from the ETDP SETA, we will issue the necessary certificate on NQF level 5. (10 credits).


The credit calculation is based on the assumption that learners are already competent in the learning area in which they will provide training.


In preparing for assessment against this Unit Standard, participants will learn how to:

1.    Plan and prepare for facilitation.
2.    Facilitate learning.
3.    Evaluate learning and facilitation.
