Tuesday 9th May and Wednesday 10th May
Janet Balaskas and Jill Miller
Assisted by Lynn Murphy and Lola Acarez-Perez
Completion and Assessment
These two days will be used to complete the work you will have done in Part 1. The first day on Tuesday 9th May will be a day of practice where the tutors will help you to prepare for your assessment on the 10th May which is the assessment day an the end of the training. This will involve an assessment process where you will be 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 Part 1 and you will be given your topics ahead of time and guidance for your preparation. 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 final day on the 10th May 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, so please click here for details http://activebirthcentre.com/active-birth-teacher-training/. In previous years most students have passed the first time, so we urge you to allow time for some self practice and reflection about your topic on the day of rest on the 8th May and to consider this part of the course.
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 part 2 and to help to make sure that you are going home with a template you can use to get started.
