Commission-Affiliated Facilitators

Commission-Affiliated Facilitators deliver Sorted programmes:

• Workplace programmes
• Community programmes
• Maori programmes
• Pasifika programmes

We have over 70 Commission-Affiliated Facilitators across all of New Zealand.

Our facilitators are highly qualified and experienced in facilitating.

We partnered with Professional IQ, a leading training and professional development provider in the financial services sector, to help us deliver the facilitator training. We apply best practice methods so your employees or community get the most value out of the programme.

The Commission’s Quality Assurance Framework for Commission-Affiliated Facilitators sets out the standards and enables the assessment of the facilitation process, particularly for the delivery of the Sorted programmes in both workplaces and community organisations. The Framework enables us to recruit, train, deliver, observe, assess, report on and ensure best practice facilitation of our Sorted Financial Capability Programmes.
Our Facilitator Quality Assurance Framework has been professionally peer-reviewed by a NZQA accredited provider and independent NZQA moderator.

Our facilitators are evaluated in several ways so we can be sure they continually meet the standards required to deliver our Sorted programmes. Facilitators demonstrate impartiality and distinguish between information and advice when delivering a programme.
