Member Facilitator Training Workshop
HEU members are the driving force of our strong and diverse union. To support greater member involvement, HEU has a Member Facilitators Program which offers members the opportunity to gain skills and experience in facilitating education sessions for fellow members.
HEU is recruiting members to train them to facilitate a one-day workshop called Getting Involved that will be offered to members considering becoming active in the union or in union-supported campaigns throughout 2020-2021. Preparing members for these roles will start with a three-day Member Facilitators Training that will be offered on January 21-23, 2020 in Burnaby.
During the training, members will gain knowledge and skills in popular education and facilitating techniques, and practice delivering these facilitation skills. Members participating will be assessed for readiness and those members will have an opportunity to facilitate or assist in facilitating the Getting Involved Workshop in their region.
When scheduled to facilitate a workshop, members will be booked off work and will be entitled to claim lost wages and expenses. There will be no additional compensation to members participating in the Members’ Facilitators Program. Members applying should be prepared to make a commitment to this program for the next 18 months.
