Lived Experience Speaker Programme

‘Share your Story’

Achieve recognition and accreditation for your experience as a Lived Experience Speaker by learning how to share your story, safely and confidently.

The programme

This programme welcomes anyone who has had an impactful life experience and would like to know how to share their story effectively, whether to inspire an audience such as a community or industry professionals; signpost to support services or provide comfort to others.

AAL’s unique Lived Experience Speaker programme covers the moral, practical and legal elements of sharing personal stories and experiences as well as, presentation, communication and facilitation skills.

The Lived Experience Speaker programme is centred around empowerment, confidence, competence and safety; widening the impact within the communities you are a part of.

Attendance and Assessment

The sessions are trainer-led and interactive, which can be via Zoom or in person. There are three days to attend over a period of six weeks.  Our Lived Experience Trainer & Coach has a wealth of expertise in the field of storytelling.

After your attendance at the training sessions, you will complete:

  • a short written workbook with questions based on the course content and your own reflections,
  • an observed in-class delivery of sharing your story for constructive peer and trainer feedback.


You will be accredited by the Association for Accredited Learning (AAL) as a Lived Experienced Speaker!

Your accreditation is valid for three years, at which time we will invite you back for a refresher course and to renew your accreditation.
