Intercultural Dialogue Training Opportunity

A great opportunity for inter-cultural dialogue training being organised for people with experience as facilitators or working with groups.

An Intercultural Dialogue pilot project will be implemented in Cork  Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019. The project  follows community a consultation process and acquisition of funding for the project from the Communities Integration Fund.

The  pilot is being rolled out through interagency and community collaboration by Cork City Partnership, Cork Social and Health Education Project (SHEP), New Communities Project (NCP) Cork, and Cork City of Sanctuary (Arts and Culture Subgroup).

Phase one of the project involves the training of 12 facilitators in the delivery of intercultural dialogue programmes.   This training will take place over two Saturdays, the 17th November and 1st December 2018.   Applications are currently sought from interested individuals who have experience in facilitation and working with groups (this can be voluntary experience with community groups).  An application form and information flyer are attached.

Following review of the applications a number of candidates will be invited to interview. Interviews will take place on Wednesday 24th October 2.30-5.30pm and on Thursday 25th October 6.30 – 8pm. The 12 successful candidates selected will take part in two days of FREE TRAINING in the delivery of intercultural dialogue programmes – as detailed above.  The training will equip participants to design and deliver an intercultural dialogue programme around themes such as food, marriage and childhood traditions.

Phase 2 of the project involves the delivery of two intercultural dialogue programmes in two communities in Cork city during February and March 2019. Each programme will consist of four sessions of two hours, which will be delivered on a one evening per week basis in a community setting.  The trained up facilitators will be paid to facilitate these programmes.

It is hoped to engage a diverse panel of facilitators, representative of the range of communities and ethnicities living in Cork.

Interested applicants must submit a completed application form (see attached) to by Friday 12th October.  

Deadline is this Friday the 12th of October 2018.
