The Journey to TA Qualification - Pt. 2
In order to become a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst, following a minimum of a year after qualification as a Certified Transactional Analyst, you would need to:
Attend a three day workshop designed to assess your training and supervision skills so that you could become a Provisional Teaching & Supervising Transactional Analyst.
There is then a process which takes another 5-7 years to build the skills and the required hours before being eligible for examination. You then need to:
Accrue 500 hours of Coaching / Supervision experience.
Accrue 300 hours of experience teaching TA plus 100 hours of continuous professional development, and complete 12 hours of presentations at conferences and professional meetings.
When you have completed all these hours and your sponsor believes that you are personally and professionally ready you can
put in for the TSTA exam. This involves three different boards: one on theory, one on training or teaching and the other on supervision. The teaching and supervision boards include practical live teaching and supervision in front of the board and you are asked questions about your philosophy and practice.
So, this is the long journey you would take in order to become a TSTA. Once there you would be nationally and internationally accredited.
Alternatively, if all these hours of personal and professional development were not for you, you could just commission us instead!
