Facilitators and Trainers

Vacancies available for specialist facilitators & trainers

At the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace, we are looking to expand our professional associate team of facilitators and trainers.

The Foundation has over 21 years’ experience delivering projects that address the root causes of violent conflict, undertaking many projects internationally and working with other Non-Governmental Organisations. We chair the European Union’s Radicalisation Awareness Network – Youth, Family and Community working group (RAN) and in 2014 were nominated for a Liberty Human Rights Award for our profound and lasting contribution to national security and well-being. To find out more about what we do, please visit other pages on this website.

In the year 2015-16, the Foundation doubled its outputs providing education programmes and training to over 3,200 people. Our work will expand from a focus on the North West to extend across the north of England over the next year.

Facilitators:

To help us deliver our unique programmes we employ a team of highly skilled professional associate facilitators that work with us on a contracted basis. We are looking for people to join this team and welcome C.Vs and covering letters from experienced practitioners across the UK.

We are interested in facilitators with expertise in two or more of the following areas: Drama/ Applied Theatre/ Forum Theatre (within a community, youth or prison setting), psychology, conflict resolution and community development. Our current work programme covers material relating to the ‘prevent’ agenda and the wider preventing violent extremism agenda. Experience in this area of work is advantageous.

The programme work and group programmes we anticipate a high demand for delivery on over the next period is:

Women

Young people – critical thinking and conflict resolution

Teacher training

Community dialogue

The Foundation defines the term facilitator as:

“A trained and competent individual who supports the learning process by providing a stimulus and structure for open discussion, enabling groups to explore and guide their own learning, encouraging active dialogue, applying a variety of teaching and learning methodologies, promoting full and inclusive participation, and providing opportunities for the group to find collective solutions.”

Selected facilitators will be invited to interview. Successful candidates will need to be available to take part in Foundation for Peace specialised training over 2.5 days (long weekend) in September. Date to be confirmed.

Please send an up to date CV and covering letter/ email to harriet.vickers@foundation4peace.org and availability for training in September.

Closing date: 30th July
