Independent contracted facilitators

What is an independent contracted facilitator?

Independent contracted facilitators are paid to deliver training on behalf of SafeCare BC. They deliver workshops to continuing care workers throughout British Columbia.

Contracted Master Facilitators are highly experienced facilitators in their respective curriculum streams. Not only can they deliver training to staff, they’re also qualified to train and mentor new Peer Facilitators on behalf of SafeCare BC.

What are the benefits?

  • Expand your skill set. Becoming an independent contracted facilitator is an excellent personal and professional growth opportunity. You’ll increase your knowledge, build valuable facilitation skills, and collect continuing education hours to maintain certification.
  • Make an even bigger impact. You will directly improve the health and safety of those in the continuing care sector.
  • Have flexibility. You get to select facilitation dates that work for your schedule.
  • Get paid. We’ll pay you to deliver workshops on our behalf.
