Training and supervision in delivering Video Interaction Guidance (VIG)
Following the AVIGuk-accredited 2 day (or equivalent) Initial Training Course (ITC), trainees embark on supervised VIG practice with their clients. This stage of training is usually completed within 1-2 years, and leads to full accreditation as an independent VIG practitioner, or guider. Following this is an optional Advanced Practitioner qualification. There is a further stage available for those who wish to train to become a VIG supervisor. Each stage begins with a training session and concludes with an accreditation meeting. Trainees find they can make a positive difference for their clients from the very start of their supervised practice.
Training in VIG is carried out by supervisors who are accredited by and registered with the Association of Video Interaction Guidance UK.
VIG Orkney only employs AVIGuk-accredited VIG guiders, trainers and supervisors.
