Nightingale Frontline: Facilitation Masterclass Programme (Commissioned)

Support your Workforce through a Facilitator Masterclass

Do you want to be able to better support your team and colleagues with their emotional wellbeing?

Florence Nightingale Foundation is offering a practical group coaching programme to enable you to better support the psychological safety of your workforce.

Our Nightingale Frontline® service launched in April 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide a support service for nurses and midwives across the UK. At that time, our goal was to provide emotional well-being support for all nurses and midwives as they battled the unprecedented demands of the pandemic on a daily basis.

Today, nurses and midwives continue to manage the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic across health and social care, as well as ongoing challenges of seasonal pressures, staff shortages and emotional pressures that the professions can bring.

We are therefore offering this new Co-consulting Facilitator Masterclass to reach as many nurses and midwives as possible. By completing this programme you will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to go on to facilitate supportive sessions in your own workplace, using a problem solving approach.


Please note that this programme is open to bookings from organisations, NOT individual nurses or midwives. Organisations can be NHS, social care or private healthcare. However, we would encourage nurses and midwives who are keen to take part to speak to their Lead Nurse and share the details.

Per participant: £170

30 participants (minimum number of places each commissioner can book): £5,100

Co-consulting online module

Access to FNF Co-consulting online learning module.

This is a pre-requisite to the online workshop, participants must complete the module before attending. It takes approximately 4-6 hours to complete (participants do this at their own pace, you don’t have to do it all in one go).

Module learning outcomes

  • Learning how to work in a small group with colleagues, and through a structured questioning / listening approach, effectively work on real problems being faced
  • Developing individuals’ learning experience, so personal awareness of potential changed behaviours that may be possible in tackling problems, is increased
  • Increasing individuals’ understanding of personal effectiveness and personal power.

During this safe space, using the group coaching model known as co-consulting, participants will go into more depth on the learning in the online module to gain knowledge, skills and confidence to go on to facilitate co-consulting sessions in your own workplace.

  • Allocation of time for each participant
  • Clear identification of a real issue you are working on
