Become a Facilitator
The Circle of Health is a dynamic, tangible tool used by educators, planners, front-line service providers, and community workers to bring the concepts of health promotion and community well-being into day-to-day life. Whether you work in the health sector, retail or manufacturing industry, primary resources or any location, the Circle of Health can be used.

What is a facilitator? A facilitator works with others to develop group rapport and exchange of knowledge and ideas. A facilitator’s role is to work with group processes to ensure effective participation and achieve a high degree of consensus. A Circle of Health facilitator uses an elicitive approach and is primarily responsible for processes of knowledge generation, partnership development and planning. When completing Facilitator training, you’ll learn about teaching/learning styles, learn activities for how to encourage creative problem solving and planning, and network with other facilitators.
We offer a Facilitator’s Handbook and a Facilitator’s Workshop for those who want to move forward with leading groups using the Circle of Health in their communities.
The Facilitator’s Handbook supports new and experienced facilitators to use the Circle of Health for education, partnership and planning purposes.
The Quaich Inc. has been facilitating in-person Facilitators workshops since 2004. With the increased demand for online offerings and travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving our workshops online! We are happy to say that soon, the Circle of Health will reach an even wider audience.
We are in the process of adapting our in-person workshop to an online format. Please leave your email so we can get in touch when they are finalized and ready for registrants!
