Narrative skills are an increasingly valued part of an educators toolkit, applied to great effect in all sorts of settings and with a diverse range of client-groups.  The craft of storytelling will be broken down into some fundamentals which once distinguished can assist the rapid improvement for those wanting to make use of it either as tellers in their teaching practice, professional storytellers, or to blend in with presentation skills participants already have. 

Finding the right story, at the right time, right place for the audience, is also a key area that the course will consider as well as offering some coaching for individual work.  Participants will then emerge from this enlivening and empowering process with takes to tell and more confidence and understanding of how,, why and where to tell stories. 

This course will be taking place largely outside, looking at the place and how tales can be told outside, using the environment as a stimulus.
