BC Council for Families: Nobody's Perfect Facilitator Training


Nobody’s Perfect Facilitator TrainingJune 2-5, 2014 St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino, Cranbrook, BC $385 (register before May 12)

Nobody’s Perfect is a parenting education program where parents can share their experiences and concerns and receive the support of other parents, in addition to support and resources provided by two skilled and knowledgeable facilitators.

The program, developed for Canadian parents of every cultural community, has been consistently demonstrated to positively impact the parenting knowledge, skills and confidence of participants. For parents in particularly stressful situations (when there simply isn’t enough money; when they’re new to the community or to the country; when they’re young, or under-educated; or struggling without a partner or family support) being part of a supportive group of parents who understand and share their difficulties can make all the difference.

Who is this training for? The Nobody’s Perfect facilitator training is specifically aimed at those with previous experience and/or education in facilitating groups and working with children, youth and families. You will already be comfortable with the basic principles of adult education, currently employed with or volunteering at a multi-service or family support organization, and passionate about supporting families in all their diversity.

How will I benefit? After attending this training, you will have developed:

  • Knowledge of Nobody’s Perfect program objectives and materials
  • Increased awareness of the principles of adult education and their application to the Nobody’s Perfect program parents
  • Enhanced skills in assessing the needs of parent groups
  • Ability to plan and direct program sessions
  • Enriched practical facilitation skills

Included in Training Sessions:

  • Complete training and program materials package
  • Lunch and snacks each day

Please note: In order to become a certified Nobody's Perfect facilitator, you must co-deliver the program with an experienced facilitator within one year of receiving training. Certificates are issued upon completion of this requirement.
