Quick and Effective!
Research has demonstrated that one important benefit of practitioners utilising a solution focused approach is that effective resolutions to the service user’s presenting problem(s) can be achieved in a comparatively short period of time; 65-83% of cases within an average of four to five sessions or less. Think of the savings in time, effort and resources this could bring to your service users, practitioners and service providers.

NCFE is the third biggest technical and vocational awarding organisation in the UK. Founded in 1848 they work for a fairer education system for all learners to power inclusivity and choice with the belief that no learner should be left behind. Solution Focused Trainers C.I.C.'s Certificates in SF Practice & SF Practice Outdoors have been accredited by NCFE as a Customised Qualification, benchmarked as a Level 3 Certificate. Whilst the course is not regulated by Ofqual, NCFE recognises that the course's learning outcomes and assessment criteria are benchmarked at Level 3, using Ofqual's framework's level descriptors, enabling our learners to demonstrate the difficulty and depth of their study.
External recognition of the Solution Focused content of our training is demonstrated through our membership of IASTI (www.iasti.org), the International Alliance of Solution Focused Training Institutes. IASTI began in 2011 and by 2023 included training institutes from 15 different countries. Our membership of IASTI provides our students with the further advantage of being able to count their training with us towards international accreditation by IASTI as a Solution Focused Practitioner/Advanced Solution Focused Practitioner/Master Solution Focused Practitioner – certification which has already been awarded to tens of thousands of practitioners in countries including the US, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Poland, Singapore, Germany, the Netherlands, India, Japan, Korea and the Philippines.
