I am an ALSG
provider course instructor can I teach on the GIC?
instructors who have taught on a minimum of four provider Courses within any
of the participating groups, as a full Instructor, are eligible to teach on
a GIC as an instructor candidate (GIC IC). All GIC ICs will be required to
satisfactorily teach on a maximum of two GICs before full GIC Instructor status
I am an instructor
candidate (IC) but I have not managed to complete my instructor training.
You have 4
years from the date of the provider course you were recommended from, to
complete your instructor training; this is passing the GIC course and attending your IC
assessments. If you have not managed to
do this you may need to start at the beginning of the process i.e. do the provider course and if recommended, re-do
the GIC etc. Please contact
ALSG and we will advise on your individual circumstances.

Yes, if you
have been teaching overseas on ALSG approved courses your instructor activity
can be registered with ALSG. Please contact the course organiser at the centre
you have been teaching at for information regarding ALSG approval.
I have been recommended for
instructor status from an ALSG provider course but have already done a GIC

processed them. This can be up to 8 weeks post course. If this time frame has
lapsed and you haven't heard from us, please complete this form: bit.ly/Fast_Track_Form and you will be contacted with further

I am an active
ALSG Instructor and need to take a break from instructing, what should I do?
our instructors need to take breaks from teaching for different reasons. ALSG will sanction a one year break without
notification to us.
We request you keep
your VLE profile up to date during this time so that you will continue to
receive notifications from us.
break from instructing is needed for a longer period of time, please complete

I was an ALSG
course instructor and havent taught for 4 years or more. I do not actively
teach on other ALSG or RC(UK) courses.
If you wish to
re-accredit as an ALSG instructor you should re-attend the provider course for
the course you wish to teach on and be successfully recommended again for
instructor training. Then you may start the instructor process again, however, in
some cases you may also have to re-attend the GIC course. Please contact ALSG
and we will advise on your individual circumstances.
