Blended Approach to Recertification

NAPPI trainer recertifications commencing in March 2021 to February 2022 will be completed using a blended approach, combining in-person training with tutor-led remote delivery (via Zoom).

In-person training

In-person training will ensure competence in both retention of the performance of physical skill and the ability to teach physical skills, at each level of a trainer’s certification. Group sizes will be kept small to reduce contact time. Locations will be more localised to reduce travelling distances and the need to stay overnight wherever possible.

Traditional in-person micro-teach assessments will be completed either in-person, or for those trainers using NAPPI Remote Delivery remote assessments are available. 

Remote Delivery

Building on the success of the past year and in accordance with the advice from Skills for Care, the use of virtual learning environments will limit contact time to the essential training that must to be delivered in-person.  

Virtual sessions are tutor-led and follow session plans consistent with in-person delivery. Training is structured into 90-minute blocks that cover the full range of knowledge as per traditional in-person deliveries. It involves two-way interaction with the trainer, group work in Breakout rooms and opportunities for reflective practice. For those trainers who want to commence the Remote Delivery option, we provide training in online facilitation. Click here for details.
