SEIU-West is in the process of recruiting up to four facilitators for our internal membership training programs. The successful applicants will excel in communication and leadership skills and will gain valuable knowledge around their union’s practices and the greater labour movement.
Are you outgoing, friendly, approachable, and energetic? If so, this facilitator training opportunity may be for you!
The facilitator training, which is tentatively set for the fall of 2021, is a four day workshop that will deliver on several components that are key to creating a well-balanced and engaging learning environment for SEIU-West members, such as:
- popular education
- public speaking
- active and unbiased listening
- understanding class/group dynamics
- diffusing situations
- time management and agility
- acquiring resources and basic online training skills
- quality session prep
Applicants must be available to attend all four days of training (dates TBD).
You will be reimbursed for lost wages or will be provided with an honorarium for your attendance on days not scheduled to work. If restrictions permit the training to proceed ‘in-person’, your union will cover travel, hotel, and meal expenses. Otherwise, the training will be online and understandably these three costs would not be required.
Applicants will need to fill out the online Facilitator Training Expression of Interest Form by July 30, 2021.
