Two-year contract/four days per week
(Flexible days-Weekdays/Weekends)
May 21, 2024-March 31, 2026


CESBA (The Ontario Association of Adult and Continuing Education School Board Administrators,(, is a bilingual, provincial, non-profit professional association that represents, advocates for, and supports Adult and Continuing Education (A&CE) program staff working in over 60 school boards across Ontario. We celebrate twenty-five years of incorporation in 2024. We are relentless in our commitment to build the capacity of professionals working in the A&CE sector, through knowledge mobilization and exchange opportunities, community partnerships, advocacy, proposals and innovations that contribute to life-changing results.

CESBA currently supports 26 school boards that offer the Personal Support Worker, (PSW), certificate training programs across the province. This project will unfold over the next 2 years supporting the needs of PSW students and graduates and LTC homes.
CESBA is launching a new Long Term Career Navigator project that is two-fold:

  1. Increasing awareness and advocacy for a career in the LTC sector through the support of a Long-Term Care Career Navigator and six regionally focused PSW Champions;
  2. Increasing recruitment and retention of school board PSW graduates into 12 targeted LTC homes through focused supports for on-boarding.

CESBA is offering a compressed, contracted four-day work week position which provides the flexibility to manage your time and energy, combined with meeting the expectations of this initiative. You will be given meaningful work to engage your capabilities. Our organization operates fully remotely with a fair amount of travel throughout Ontario based on the needs of the project to PSW programs and LTC homes. The annual salary is $75,000 as well as compensation for travel expenses.

The Long-Term Care Career Navigator is an integral part of the project and will work alongside the project team and supervise the six PSW Champions to bring awareness of a fulfilling career in the LTC sector. You will apply key strategic thinking to support LTC homes and education stakeholders through outreach, engagement, networking, and connections. Your primary focus will be to work with the project team and PSW Champions on providing awareness campaigns and marketing of LTC career opportunities; promoting work in the LTC sector for students and graduates; engaging LTC home partners and school board PSW program partners; and creating new collaborations with external partners to increase the number of PSW graduates hired in the LTC sector.

At CESBA, we are uncovering new opportunities and exploring uncharted territory to expand our reach and impact across the province to support the critical need for PSWs.
