Those considering Faculty Training must be certified and applications will normally not be considered until at least one year after their Certification. The requirements and training programme for all faculty is established by William Glasser International.

It is important that those who apply for faculty training should have made a detailed self-evaluation of their suitability for a teaching/supervising role. To assist in this interested parties are required by WGI to contact a Faculty Programme Consultant (FPC) who will act in a supervisory role throughout their training.

As a general rule Faculty Training courses in Ireland are held during the summer months but all trainee faculty are expected to meet other requirements of an experiential nature.  Because of these pre-course requirements those interested in becoming faculty are recommended to become aware of the requirements well in advance of applying for a course.

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE WORKSHOP FACILITATOR

Becoming a facilitator for this 6-hour workshop is an excellent first step on the road to becoming WGI faculty. It is not a requirement for further faculty training but is recommended. When there is sufficient interest applicants are invited to a mentoring programme where they are helped create their own approach and materials for each of the six modules of the workshop.

RTCT PRACTICUM SUPERVISOR TRAINING PROGRAMME

Requirements

Participants must be Reality Therapy Certified.  Each participant will work with a Faculty Programme Consultant, who is an experienced Practicum Supervisor. The FPC’s work will include observing trainee participation in practicum and can include feedback, phone calls, emails and meetings.

Portfolio

Each participant must keep a portfolio containing a brief summary and examples of learning and professional growth towards becoming Faculty.

There are four stages to the Practicum Supervisor Training Programme:

STAGE ONE: Preparation for Training – One year. 


This involves field experience with the FPC, and reflection on that experience. The trainee observes the FPC in practicum work. The focus is on developing an understanding of the practicum process and developing presentation skills and training materials linked to role-play competencies. There will be at least 24 hours of preparation with the FPC – 12 hours actively observing practicum work with the FPC and 12 in direct consultation with the FPC.

>>>>> HOW TO CONTACT A FPC.


Where there is the opportunity to observe a practicum in action, the trainee will be invited to do so. This may not be possible for everyone, so the training group will form a roleplay practicum group and trainees will use that forum to get the fieldwork experience, having the opportunity to take on the supervisor role progressively.
Fee to Faculty Programme Consultant: €400. This is paid directly to the FPC.

STAGE TWO: Training.

This is a four-day (32-hour) training programme focusing on increasing the knowledge and skills acquired in field experience. There is a major emphasis on role-plays.
Fee: €600. This is paid through the WGII website.
