3. Remote and Extended Assessment Process
Clean Facilitator – Level I


 DRAFT version 0.8
NOTE CREDIT NUMBERS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO MORE ALIGN WITH CRITERIA 


To be read in conjunction with the Criteria for Competence in Clean Language, Clean Space & Symbolic Modelling - Level I.

The assessment of behaviour against the criteria has typically happened face-to-face over a couple of days. With a growing number of people being trained (at least in part) via the web and living 'overseas', Marian Way and I recognised the need for a process for assessing remotely and over an extended time period. We therefore produced the attached as a discussion document.

The general idea is that assessment is broken down into five parts for which the candidate gets a 'credit' for each part when they demonstrate the criteria. When they have accumulated credits for parts 1-3 they are ready to take credit 4, credit 5 can be taken at anytime. Two assessors must be involved in the overall process but only one assessor is required for each credit. This process allows for a candidate to gain credits from more than one organisation but that would need to be agreed with whoever issued the final certificate.

Below the five credits are summarised and the relevant criteria required to be demonstrated in each credit listed:

Credit no. Activity Timing
Media 
In order of preference:

Can be a continuation of session 2 with same client.
Or start by asking: When you are [learning] at your best, that’s like what? and go quickly into modelling a sequence.

4 (especially 4c, 4d, 4e; and 4f only as required)

Preferably a continuation of the session for credit 3 starting from a metaphor map (if not too long between sessions). Otherwise, have client and candidate work together beforehand; the client draws a map, and recaps their landscape at the start of the assessed session.
Or, allocate a longer time for this session.

 5 Facilitate basic Clean Space session.  30 mins
+
10 mins feedback
 - Face to face
- Skype video
- Video recording
5 Can be completed anytime, independent of Credits 1-4.

Candidate awarded Clean Facilitator - level I certificate when all five ‘competency credits’ have been achieved.

General Notes:
  1. Sessions 1, 2, 3 and 4 to be completed in that order. Session 4 should not be arranged until the candidate has demonstrated competency at sessions 2, 3 and 4.  Session 5, Clean Space, can be completed anywhere in the sequence.
  2. The candidate must facilitate at least 3 different clients to demonstrate their ability to work with a range of people and landscapes. 
  3. The environment and client will need to be prepared prior to the session – the client needs to know their role, the nature of the activity, and have their outcome/topic drawn/written as required so everything is ready to start on time.
  4. Audio-only may be used for one of session 1-3 but no more since the assessor must be able to observe how the candidate uses their non-verbals in relation to the client’s non-verbals.
  5. There may be a time limit (e.g. 2 years) within which the certification needs to be completed.
  6. At least two assessors are to be involved. If the ‘lead’ assessor observes the majority of credits then the second assessor must observe at least credit 4.
