October 2018 - Congratulations to our new i-act instructors
Due to an increase in demand i-act decided to hold two additional cohorts of the accredited i-act instructor training. We were delighted to train instructors from the private, public and third-sectors, including instructors from Sandwell Council, environmental bodies, freelancers and mindfulness practitioners. This cohort of i-act instructor training saw i-act instructors from England, Scotland and Wales. Once you are accredited as an i-act instructor, you can deliver the i-act course anywhere in the UK and internationally (with NO separate or additional licence and training fees). So congratulations to our new i-act instructors who are now keen to deliver the accredited i-act training across the UK and internationally.
