  • Funding to pay for the licence, facilitator training and facilitator support

  • At least 3-4 people who meet the person specification and have been trained to be SAGE & THYME facilitators

  • Administrative support
  • Learner packs (now available digitally)

Once you have organised the above, you will need:

  • SAGE & THYME presentation in PowerPoint
  • DVD of SAGE & THYME scenarios
  • Training room (accommodating 30 people and with moveable chairs for group work)/online meeting platform (Zoom is recommended)

  • Flip chart paper and pens (Foundation Level only)
  • People to teach (up to 30 per Foundation Level workshop/up to 20 per Online workshop)

We have a ‘basic guide’ that is your first point of call if you are interested in running SAGE & THYME training in your organisation (see download on right hand side).

If you need to submit a business case in order to gain the funding you need to pay for training and licence (which includes the cost of the delegate digital pack), you may find our business case guide helpful (see download on right hand side).
