How to become a Lifo® accredited trainer

Accreditation via Life Orientations® Ltd involves three days of training at one of our centres:

  • an initial two-day introduction workshop
  • a specialised workshop that explores one of the Lifo® applications.

Days 1 and 2 provide participants with thorough grounding in the Lifo® methodology. The workshop is interactive, practical and stretching. It is also fun! We encourage openness and sharing: participants will gain confidence in the Lifo® model and instruments by trying them out themselves.

Day 3 is chosen from the range of workshops on one of the individual applications of Lifo®. As well as those seeking accreditation, this workshop will be attended by established Lifo® practitioners - enhancing the learning for new users, and giving the practitioners fresh perspectives. We actively encourage new users to try out the materials they will need, before the workshop - either on real clients or ‘guinea pigs' so that they maximise their learning.

Once accredited, you will be equipped as a coach and facilitator using the Lifo® method to design and run a variety of programmes, using the supporting range of Lifo® materials.
