Training

Learn the core skills for becoming a Storyteller and about the power of storytelling.

We have training and events throughout the year both online and face-to-face.

If Storytellers or members of their team need to receive their Open the Book training or to refresh their training, this is the place to look for training events and information.

Core Training in person or on Zoom

All Storytellers are to attend Open the Book Core Training before going into school for the first time, and refresh their training every three years.

Click on the dates below to book your place (Zoom joining details will be sent to you before the event).

In-person training can be arranged for groups of ten or more.

Air and Shares in person or on Zoom

Connect, share and pray with other Storytellers.

Storytelling members are invited to get together and this could be an opportunity for refreshing training.
