Training and Supervision Fees

Training to become a VIG guider consists of the Initial Training Course (2 days or 4 half-days) followed by 3 stages of supervised practice.  VIG Supervisors are accredited by the Association of Video Interaction Guidance, who provide all training material and lay down criteria and standards. Group sizes for the ITC are kept low in order to maximise individual learning.

VIG Orkney supervisors are all AVIGuk-accredited; Miriam Landor, VIG Orkney leader, is one of only 23 National Supervisors, and is a member of the AVIGuk Board of Directors. 

As well as supervising trainees throughout Scotland, Miriam specialises in Distance Learning methods for VIG training.  Following a face-to-face ITC, the rest of the training can be completed through using platforms such as Skype and Dropbox. Trainees can either sign up to an existing ITC, (see VIG Residential Courses in Orkney, Scotland), or enquire from Miriam@vigorkney.co.uk about setting up an ITC in your own location, wherever in the world you are.

The beginning of each stage depends on satisfactory completion of the previous one after a transition meeting with a different supervisor (i.e. not the trainee’s supervisor).

Certificates to mark the successful completion of each stage will be issued by AVIGuk after an end-of-stage transition / accreditation meeting reported by the trainee to: registrar@videointeractionguidance.net

It is important that video of the family/client and/or shared review is shared at each supervision.

If a trainee does attend a supervision without current video material this should be recorded as such clearly in the log book. There can only be one supervision in each stage without current video.

One hour individual supervision can be replaced by two hours of supervision in a pair or three hours of supervision in a group of 3. Each person must receive one hour of supervision on their videos while the group forms a reflective team.
