What I Matter Lead Professionals do

Only certified Lead Professionals can run the I Matter Training course for their schools or communities. Lead Professionals may organize courses according to our guidelines, for colleagues or parents connected to their school or service or communities and, as appropriate, may charge a fee for the courses they run. They must provide I Matter Training participant manuals to all those who attend the course and all participants must be offered an I Matter Q consultation (either informal or formal) and have the option of an online learning Foundation A account..

Lead Professionals

The primary role of Lead Professionals is to run study support for I Matter Training course with fidelity to the core program model and key messages. Each Lead Professional has a set of materials to help guide them through course facilitation.

To run a course, certified Lead Professionals must order manuals and prepare course materials and resources (available on the Lead Professional Members site) for all their participants. Upon completion, Lead Professionals must provide to and/or review participant evaluations with I Matter Training .  Lead Pofessionals  typically team up with another certified Lead or deputy  to deliver the course, but may also choose to teach on their own.

Putting on a course involves much more than just showing up. Lead Professionals frequently have organizational support to help them with other tasks related to the program such as:

  • Strategic planning (e.g., creating business plans, forming community partnerships, outreach)
  • Setting a course schedule
  • Setting and collecting course fees
  • Marketing and media outreach
  • Course registration
  • Event planning (e.g., catering, logistics)
  • Seeking grants
  • Evaluation and analysis of program’s success
