You will be instrumental in the setup of our workshop program. You will plan and deliver two hour learning workshops for our members. You may have skills in something that other people want to learn, and get a kick out of sharing them. Ideally you have an idea of what makes for a good learning experience, and with a bit of support would be capable of facilitating the session in a way that will enable the members to connect with each other. Our members love events that provide informal experiences with a strong emphasis on socialising. Members will learn something new - write poetry, cook easy meals, card making, jewellery making, vision boards or decorate cakes for example - whilst the structure of each lesson allows them to build lasting friendships with fellow members. You will be required to find people who will enjoy sharing their skills teaching our members something new, schedule the dates and be available to facilitate each workshop. A facilitator should have the following attributes:

  • Passion for social inclusion
  • Enjoys meeting and getting to know people from different backgrounds
  • An ability to facilitate introductions and conversations in a social setting
  • Be competent in a skill and confident that you can teach it
  • Patience and kindness
  • Organised and reliable
  • Strong communication skills
