Become a Facilitator
Our educational model is based on valuing lived experience and using co-production. Peer and Practitioner Facilitators work together in equal partnership to co-design and co-deliver a variety of interactive and engaging courses. To do this we need a broad range of lived experience and professional expertise. Our Associate Model allows those interested in this way of working to engage with us to develop a diverse range of courses for our students.
Peer Facilitators share insights learned from their own mental health difficulties, or experiences as carers, with our students. Their expertise is essential to our courses and demonstrates hope to our students.
Practitioner Facilitators offer expertise in their subject area whether that is mental health, nutrition, mindfulness or returning to work, and often provide evidence-based content for the course.
Peer and Practitioner Facilitators can be a self-employed contractor (Associate), represent a business (Business Associate) or volunteer their time (Volunteer Associate).
