Enneagram Typing Practitioner

March 2020 – Corona Virus

We have rescheduled all our courses for 2020-2021. The dates you see below are the rescheduled dates.

Would you like to learn how to interview people effectively, to explore their basic drive and help them discover their Enneagram type?

The Typing Practitioner Training Programme

Typing is the core skill for every professional who works with the Enneagram. In order to become a qualified Typing Practitioner you need to complete the Foundation Programme plus the Typing Practitioner training.

The Typing Practitioner programme consists of:

  • 2-day training in Typing Process skills
  • minimum of 16 practice interviews, of which 8 are supervised by an Enneagram Training facilitator
  • Written and practical examination
The Typing Process Skills Course 

In this 2-day course you’ll learn an efficient and effective interview strategy to explore someone’s basic drive. You’ll develop your own script, practise with it and, at the same time, deepen your knowledge of the nine types.

Topics covered during the course include:

  • how to create an interview which is rigorous but also exploratory and reflective for the interviewee
  • the difference between questions that do and don’t work, and why
  • how to differentiate between the non-verbals, mimics, energy, use of words etc. of the nine types
  • the most important lookalikes and how to separate them from each other
  • your own type bias and how to recognise and relax it
  • grounding and building rapport.
Qualification Studies

In order to qualify as a typing practitioner you then need to complete supervision and assessment activities:

You conduct 8 supervised interviews, on which you receive feedback.  In between you practise, so that you carry out a minimum of 16 typing interviews in total (most students do at least 20). Through this iterative process you become proficient in the necessary skills to really  master the typing process. One of the 8 interviews is supervised by a different supervisor, giving you experience of another style. Qualifiers invariably tell us that they have gained much added value from supervision, for their own personal growth as well for improving their interviewing skills.

You complete a written review about your knowledge of type.  You also carry out a live (or via Skype) assessment typing interview overseen by a different supervisor.

 Once you successfully complete the activities above you will receive a certificate as a Qualified Typing Practitioner with Enneagram Training. CPD hours for this qualification are 23 hours contact time and an approximate self-study value of 60 hours.

You can start the Typing Practitioner training as soon as you have completed the Intensive Growth Journey, but you will need to complete the rest of the Foundation Programme before  you can qualify as a Typing Practitioner.
