Motion to IFF Assembly 2014: Integrated Professional Entry Standards

That the IFF host a Task Group to integrate the Standards being developed which relate to the Education to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner.
Why: There are currently several related projects being conducted by different groups. None of these groups has the responsibility or jurisdiction to create an “International Standard”.
It is clearly the wish of the international community to share core training practice and outcomes.
The IFF is a suitable forum for Feldenkrais Associations to discuss and develop an International understanding.
How: The Assembly delegates to 4 people (Corinna Eikmeier, Eric Kiernan, Rob Black and Karine Egault ) to meet as an Appointment Group with the task of calling for expressions of interest, and selecting a group of people with the relevant skills to carry out this task.

Participant requirements: A cultural and geographically diverse group who all have an appreciation of Constructive Alignment of Learning Objectives, Learning Activities and Assessment criteria. The task group should be comprised of at least one person with expertise in the writing of learning outcomes and assessment processes
one experienced practitioner one person with facilitation skills who will facilitate the process of the group one experienced Educational Director one Training organiser

All supported by an efficient Secretary
Deliverables / Timeline:
· Postal ballot response by 15th July
· Expressions of interest called from all stakeholder groups by 20th July 2014.
· Expressions of interest in by 31st August, 2014.

Stage 2
Depending on the outcomes of Stage 1, Stage 2 may involve the same group coordinating a consensus approach to the development of an integrated set of professional entry standards to the Feldenkrais profession. Such a document would be at most, a suggestion. The governing bodies retain the right to change Training Policy.
A Reference group for support and clarification will consist of the initial appointment group and an IFF Board member.
