Reviewing Facilitator Applications

When someone applies to be an Online Workshop facilitator they do so from the form on learn.wordpress.org/online-workshops and their application goes into Help Scout. When reviewing online workshop facilitator applications, you need to review the content they would like to facilitate, as well as the person who is applying.

For the vetting process of the individual, follow the same guide as for Faculty Members.

For vetting the topic, the only real criteria are:

  1. The content is about WordPress
  2. It is facilitated online

If an application requires more information, reply to them using the “Online Workshop: Request more information” saved reply and modify it to be as specific as you need for the situation.

If an application must be declined, reply to them using the “Online Workshop: Declined” saved reply and edit it to explain the reason.
If an application is successful, reply to them using the “Online Workshop: Accepted” saved reply and provide more information about aspects you particularly liked in their application.

Identifying spam applications

Spam applications typically include text that does not appropriately answer the given questions, lack a valid WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ profile, and/or an invalid email address. When an application vetter comes across a spam application, we recommend tagging the message as spam and closing it out. Also, go to the Feedback page on the Training Team site and mark the response as Spam. If the vetter is unsure of whether or not it is a spam application, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Training Team Representative or Faculty Member for guidance.
