ABOUT THE COURSE

The Sociocracy for Schools course starts on Wednesday 2nd February 2022 at 2pm Central European time (CET) and lasts a total of 12 hours spread across 6 sessions of 2 hours each.

The course is aimed at educators, school managers and anyone interested in applying sociocracy in an educational setting. In the course you will learn practical skills to implement sociocracy in your own context, whether in a school, community or organisation.

This course is founded on learning through direct experience, as you will be organised into small groups to practice decision-making processes, facilitation skills, sociocratic elections and construction of a circle structure. You will also experience sociocracy through role play of real examples that we collected from schools around the world.

You will have a chance to develop facilitation skills, so you can immediately apply sociocracy to your context after the course. We offer tools for collective decision-making, open elections and conflict mediation, which can be applied in any meeting with students, staff and parents.

You can bring a buddy or a colleague from the same organisation to join you in this course. And if you have a whole team, then we can arrange a private Sociocracy training for you. You can read more about the course here and send us an email to contact@wonderingschool.org to inquire.
