Assessment and Certification ©

Janet Balaskas and Jill Miller

Assisted by Lynn Murphy and Lola Alcarez Perez Sunday 28th June


Completion and Assessment

At the end of the course you will participate in the  assessment process which is the end of the training.  This  will involve being asked to teach the other participants who will represent your ‘clients’. You will have had plenty of time to practice and plan for this during the 4 days and you will be given your topics ahead of time. The value of this kind of group assessment is that you will also be learning from each other – sharing creative ideas and it is usually done in a very relaxed, enjoyable and supportive way.

At the end of the  day on the 24th November you will be awarded your certificate and asked to sign the certification and use of logo agreements. In the event that you are not ready yet to pass the assessment, we will be offering you the opportunity to resit either in person or on Skype. There is a cost for this, for details please click here. 

Completing your workshop plans

Throughout the course there will be time to  work on your workshop plan and you will have prepared bullet points on cards for each topic by the end of part 1. Tutors will be on hand to assist you during and to help to make sure that you are going home with a template you can use to get started.
