This course is designed to prepare you to take on a role anywhere in XR (your local group, your region or a UK-wide team) and find the type of role that suits you best.

The course is great for people new to XR but if you have been around for longer you may find it useful too - we bet you’ll learn something you didn’t know!

  • Introduction to XR
  • Heading for Extinction and what to do about it
  • How to use XR’s communication tools
  • Meeting skills
  • NonViolent Direct Action (NVDA)
  • Know your Rights
  • How XR works & who makes the decisions
  • Skills, Boundaries, and Sustainable Activism
  • What is a Regenerative culture?
  • Course socials and problem-solving sessions

The course is entirely online (so you will need a good internet connection) and is very flexible: you can work at your own pace to either complete the whole course or just dip in where you would like to deepen your knowledge. The next Introduction will be held on Zoom on February 5th at 19:00 but you can start at any point and join a weekly FP get-together. There are approximately 22.5 hours of learning in total.

  • support and guidance from the course directors
  • training in small groups on zoom (online video call)
  • the tools to access e-learning, which you can complete in your own time
  • personal connections to help you find your feet in a new role
  • opportunities to meet your fellow students (online)

The course directors will guide you throughout and, at the end of the course, support you into finding a role with one of our amazing teams or local groups anywhere across the UK.
