NIC will offer six regional T4C facilitator training programs in FY 2019.
Thinking for a Change Facilitator Training course overview:
This 44-hour training experience prepares participants to deliver the Thinking for a Change program with offender groups.
NIC has designed this course as a blended learning experience. The training includes three important elements. Just as with a traditional classroom-based training, 100% attendance at all sessions and completion of all assignments are required to receive a certificate of completion.
The elements of this course are:
- 6 VILT SESSIONS – Attend/participate in six Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) sessions. VILT sessions are live online training events with instructors. Participants attend via computer/internet and interact with the trainers and other participants. The VILTs for this training are each two hours in duration. An additional .25 hours are allotted for these sessions to allow for early sign-in and for the rare occasions when a session may run a few minutes late. 13.5 HOURS
- INTER-SESSION WORK (independent study/practice) – Participants are required to complete all the pre-session and inter-session assignments as part of this training. These assignments will include: reading lessons, watching short videos, completing worksheets, and communicating with trainers and other participants via email and phone. Participants will prepare to deliver three lessons during the face-to-face portion of the training event. Participants must be provided time during normal duty hours to complete this work. Inter-session work averages about two hours per week. 10.5 HOURS
- 1 ILT SESSION – Attend/participate in an Instructor Led Training (ILT) experience. ILT sessions are traditional face-to-face classroom training events. The ILT for this training is two and one half days long. 20 HOURS
