In 2015, the International Sherborne co-operation group (ISCO) invited each national association to nominate 2 or 3 people with specified skills and knowledge to apply to join the new Training/ Learning panel which would be tasked with reviewing the present structure and creating a completely new structure which would be fit for the demands internationally of the 21st century.
After a process of evaluation the following were accepted to work on this panel :- Unni Vagstol, Cia Klinta, Kerstin Wallin, Malgorzata Mroziac, Marta Bogdanowicz, Bart Jamine, Jo Deams, Ellen Van de Gruiter, Carolyn Childs, Janet Sparks and Alleyne Cliff. Elizabeth Marsden co-ordinated the preparation of the members, set the brief and served as note taker at the first meeting which took place in Warsaw in November 2015. The panel will continue its work until a new structure is completed. Meanwhile the present structure (below) will continue to operate.
Training Courses in Sherborne Developmental Movement (SDM) are progressively structured with essential periods of practice in between the levels. There are 4 levels of training:- Basic Level 1; Basic Level 2, Advanced Practitioners’ Course (APC) and Finally International Course Leader (ICL).
The Basic Courses Level 1 and Level 2 contain a grounding in theory and practice of SDM and are taught locally. There are a few local differences but the set framework is always covered eg in Poland the Basic courses may be taught over a period of 2-3 days while in the UK they are one day courses. Click here to view the basic frameworks (A ) and here for basic framework (B). Basic Courses qualify a person to teach SDM to their own clients in their own setting eg school or clinic
The Advanced Practitioners’ Course is an international course set over a 3-day residential period and the syllabus is the same wherever it is taught. At least 2 International Course Leaders monitor each APC to ensure international standards are maintained. Click here to view the APC ( C). Having gained an APC, a person is regarded as a very good practitioner who, as well as teaching their own clients, may wish to work with other clients in different settings and occasionally assist an ICL in delivering an official Level 1 or 2 Course. An experienced APC may choose, in time. To pursue further study to become an International Course Leader. A sufficiently experienced person qualified to APC level can apply to one of the international reps (Cia, Veronique or Liz) for starting training towards the International Course Leader (ICL) award.
