Online FRT training for schools

Online training for the classroom

Requirement for online training

  • An active webcam to fully participate for practical observation.
  • At least 2 people (and an even number) from the same establishment to be able to attend the training together.
  • You will be working with each other on the practical activities (please note it is your responsibility to work within your school and government COVID guidelines and face coverings to be worn if required)
  • The delivering of the routine and the opportunity to experience receiving the nurturing routine is especially important; you need to know what it feels like for you. It is not just about delivering it to your pupils.

There are two options available

  • Hands only workshop - 7 hours.
    Interactive and guided practical session over zoom with adequate screen breaks pencilled in.
  • Hands and Feet workshop  - 10 hours (Two x 5 hours.)
    Interactive and guided practical sessions with your partner over zoom with adequate screen breaks pencilled in. Attending two sessions at least one week apart allows you a little time to work with the framework, build your confidence with the practical skills and list any questions ready for session two.

What does the training offer?

The training will provide you with a brief introduction to the complementary therapy of reflexology, help raise your awareness of the many benefits of safe, positive touch and the value it can bring into the classroom environment.

Opportunities to interact as the sessions are guided by and live with Lorraine.

Welcome and introduction to the agenda and house rules for the use of zoom and the training course.
