Training the Trainers Programme in Person-Centred Practices

Closing date for applications August 1st 2016

This is much more than a train the trainers programme. This will equip you with a range of ways to train, coach and support people in using person-centred thinking tools, including one-page profiles. You will become an accredited trainer and you, and everyone you train, will
 also have ongoing support from Helen Sanderson Associates through a dedicated membership site.


• Train and support people in the development and implementation of one-page profiles and a range of other person-centred practices

• Coach new facilitators in using the tools

• Use 5 ways to develop one-page profiles

• Develop a range of ways to support facilitators to review their practice – both individually and in group


Through this programme, everyone that you then train as a facilitator also gets ongoing support from us. Everyone on your courses gets immediate access to a dedicated site for facilitators in person-centred thinking, that has additional resources and discussion forums, and monthly phone-ins.




You will learn how to offer training and coaching in flexible ways including:

• As a one-day course with e-learning

• Through e-learning with individual co-facilitation and coaching

This programme will enable you to be your organisation’s expert in person-centred thinking, and you will be able to train, support and help others to implement person-centred thinking tools.
