CAN I ASSIST/ADJUST ANYONE?
As a part of your training you will be assisting in sessions by taking part in physical adjustments. You will organise with a fellow teacher trainee to adjust them throughout a session, and you can then reciprocate by being adjusted by them in another session. While you are in training you cannot adjust anyone and everyone in a session.It is important that the sessions you intend to assist in are taught by a Level 2 teacher, so they have the necessary skills to teach the class and also assist you with your adjustments. When training begins, you will be given the names of these teachers so you can schedule these assists.
CAN I OBSERVE ANYONE?

HOW ‘GOOD’ DO I NEED TO BE TO BECOME A TEACHER?

We suggest you have a regular practice before signing up for training. If you are concerned, please contact us to discuss.

HOW MUCH WORK AM I EXPECTED TO DO OUTSIDE OF THE FACE-TO-FACE TRAINING?
As well as your face-to-face training, you are required to participate, observe and assist in a number of sessions. Outside of this, you will need to spend time completing your assessment pieces. Every student is different, so it is difficult to estimate how many hours this course work will take. Please read over the list of assessments carefully, to determine how long this may take you to complete.
