Longtime contributors, Dr Laura Haynes (US), Professor Carolyn Pela (US), Alexis Lundh (NO), and Pastors Elizabeth Woning and Ken Williams are returning contributing speakers and are all highly appreciated.

Recorded Sessions and the IFTCC Curriculum

The programme allows for the greatest level of selection from participants since all pathways sessions – happening simultaneously – are recorded along with the plenary presentations.  Attendees have free access to IFTCC Learning for the 2023-2024 curriculum, meaning not every session has to be attended but can be reviewed from late November.  We are grateful for the film team that makes this possible. The new IFTCC Framework displays the current 2023-2024 Curriculum Framework

More detailed descriptions of all the competencies (offered at Basic (A) Intermediate (B) and Advanced (C) Levels  reflected in the Framework Competenciesare available for download at the link above.  This indicate that the conference presentations are linked into the IFTCC framework and therefore well placed to contribute to the continuing professional development of all – specialists and the general public.
