    • Like work with a difference, that MAKES a difference AND can bring an income (if you want it)

    Watch Information Session

    If you:

    • love the idea of helping others be more at ease talking about dying, death and grief
    • like being with those who may be facing their own end
    • are moved to facilitate the transformation of others' attitudes towards life and death
    • maybe had your own experience of someone dying
    • love supporting someone grow through learning new things

    AND you want to increase your ability, your credibility, and your confidence in this area, (not to mention standing out from others) then read on...

    You might have had to take care of your parents or someone else close to you who has died, and realized the last thing you want is for your own death to be like that.

    Or perhaps you’ve been an executor where the person who died was organized, and you understood what a huge blessing that is.

    Maybe you just feel comfortable with this subject and want to help others  feel more at ease too.

    Whatever your own circumstances, one thing you do realize is that with an aging population in most of the world, more and more people are having to admit to something they have found unpalatable before – that they themselves are going to die.

    Would you like to play your part in making talking about death as easy and effortless as possible?

    If you do, then join us in the Before I Go vision...

    To have end-of-life plans be as commonplace as birth plans!

    Can you imagine that?

    It would mean that general conversations would include the word 'death' with no comeback; that death would no longer be a taboo topic; and that we would all be more at ease as our own end of life arrives.

    This Before I Go Academy training in end-of-life planning is part of that vision.  If this idea lights your fire, you want to make a contribution in this way to the world,  and have yourself, your family and others benefit from making good end-of-life plans, then welcome, you are in the right place!

    Danielle Cole"100% worth it!"

    "Entering into this course, I held little expectation other than to complete my EoL plan and to test my skills in supporting others to do the same. However it has most definitely surpassed what I had pictured for myself. Other than my plan being completed, it has helped me so much with my own grief journey (a lot of healing has taken place) eased some of my major fears around death and dying. Given me clarity about choices, some I did not know I even had. Opened up my options to a career that helps people through an extremely important service. Also connecting with some truly amazing people along the way. Not forgetting the fantastic support from Jane and the rest of the team at BIGS. I would highly recommend completing your EoL with the BIGS team and if you are considering the facilitator course, definitely go for it! It is 100% worth it"
    Danielle Cole, London, England

    Our founder's story

    Jane Duncan Rogers, founder of Before I Go Solutions 

    When my husband Philip died, I never for one moment imagined  I would end up working in this field.

    I had been an award winning counsellor and coach for over 30 years, having originally trained personally with the famous Louise L. Hay in 1990, working in the personal growth field in many different aspects. I'd  published books and tapes (well before the internet) and was helping small business owners to reach their full potential when Philip died.

    Because of the questions he had answered in his last year, I was well prepared in some respects for the admin side of things afterwards. But there was much more we simply did not know about.

    Fast forward to 2018, a year during which both my parents died.  They had completed a comprehensive end-of-life plan each, the one that Before I Go Solutions offers, now known as the Before I Go Method®.

    My three siblings and I had no disagreements at all, over what was a pretty stressful period (my parents both died unexpectedly within the same week in 2018).

    As my parents' executor, I simply had to follow all their thoughtful instructions. What’s more, it was easy to find everything, and I took great solace from knowing I was carrying out what they wanted (and that they had known I would do this).

    I am incredibly grateful and appreciative for the organisation they had so carefully thought through.

    I know from personal experience how hugely important this preparation work is, and now I and my training team want to help you to help others do this too!

    Penn Shewing"The level of support and knowledge has been exemplary"

    "This has been the best training I have done, and I have trained in many therapies! The level of support and knowledge has been exemplary. I have confidence I can begin to do this, I know I have much to learn but this is the only training I have completed feeling this. I haven't felt this inspired about anything since I did a cranial training 35 years ago!"
    Penn Shewring, England

    Michael Williams"This training allowed me to share my fears and concerns"

    "This training has deepened my appreciation of why it's so important to have a positive end-of-life plan! While it's not an easy or comfortable prospect, the training allowed me to share my fears and concerns while at the same time providing me with valuable tools to meet this challenge and a safe space to share my experiences. Thank you!"

    CONTENT OF FACILITATORS PROGRAMME

    Weekly Live Coaching Sessions

    These sessions offer you live support while you progress through the training at your own pace. They take place on Tuesday evenings (7pm - 8.30pm UK / 11am - 12:30pm PST / 2pm - 3:30pm EST) and include a mix of Q&A time, partner exercises, study buddy get-togethers, presentations, discussion, videos, and role plays to help you become confident and clear to bring this work to those you want to benefit.


    Part 1: The Personal

    Your Own End-of-Life Plan

    Part 1 of this programme is you completing your own plan, and this course is the one which your clients will get access to through you.

    Here's what is covered:

    Module 1: Lessening the Household Headaches

    Module 2: Advance Healthcare Decision Making

    Module 3: Looking After the Legals

    Module 4: Designing Your Digital Life and Finances

    Module 5: Taking Care of the Body

    Module 6: Eulogies and Keeping It All Updated

    This tried and tested Before I Go Method® has been developed since 2017, working with individuals both on and offline to enable them to complete their end-of-life plans.  You can find the full contents here, and it is this course you will be taught to facilitate, should you choose to do that.

    DETAILS:

    All modules are accessed through a dedicated learning platform, Membervault, with a mix of reading matter, video/audio lessons and thought-provoking questions to inspire you.

    The weekly live coaching calls help you consolidate, get questions answered, discuss with other students, and provide you with an opportunity for accountability - making sure you do what you say you are going to do!


    Part 2: The Practical

    Doing Death Differently

    Part 2 takes you through all that is needed to be able to communicate wisely and well with others about all aspects of end of life planning.  In these classes, we cover:

    Class 1: Necessary end-of-life conversation skills – listening and talking so your conversations in all areas of this subject are fruitful, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate, in all situations.

    Class 2: Understanding bereavement and the impact it has, so you can compassionately and wisely be aware of how best to support others at a difficult time.

    Class 3: DIY death – the multitude of things you and your family need to know to enable engagement of a funeral director to be lessened, or not used at all.

    Class 4: Advance Care Planning – how to make sure all the ducks are in a row for this to contribute to the good death that most people say they want, but don't get.

    Including homework, this all leads to you having the foundations in place to move on to Part Three, where you are taught to apply what you have learnt so far in an easily structured and enjoyable way, to offer as a certified facilitator of the Before I Go Method®.


    Part 3: The Practicing

    Becoming an End-of-Life Plan Facilitator

    Here, we apply all that has been learnt in a way that best meets the needs of your community, be it virtually or in person. This is what we cover in PART 3:

    • How to work with groups, online and offline, so you feel confident in running successful events.
    • A proven in-person group format that works to engage, inspire and result in your participants taking action.
    • The Before I Go Method® group outline for in-person courses so you can feel reassured they are learning what they need to know.
    • How to access the Before I Go Method online course, for your clients benefit and a great plus to your own offering.
    • Action-taking skills, so you and your clients can be sure the 'doing' will happen.

    BONUS 1:   Assisted Dying. This module is for those particularly interested in helping participants explore the moral and ethical dilemmas this topic brings.

    BONUS 2:  Who Am I and What Is A Body? An understanding of being more than a body is helpful to some, and in this optional module you gain an introduction to this.

    WHAT THEY SAY

    "A Humbling Experience and a Chance to Change Lives for the Better"

    "The Before I Go Facilitator Training has been a chance to enhance my knowledge, skills and confidence with a view to creating and delivering supportive and informative workshops for those too afraid ‘to go there’, or blissfully ignorant of the fact that end of life planning exists. From learning to delivering, this is a humbling experience and ultimately a chance to change lives on so many levels, for the better.  You don’t often get to say that about a course you’ve been on" 

    Trained Facilitator Nuala Lindsay, Scotland

    "Jane has a lovely way of making talking about death normal"

    "I loved this training! It has given me the background and comfort to help others develop a solid end-of-life plan. I can now talk from experience because I was able to get my own plan in order with a supportive group of colleagues during the training. Jane has a lovely way of making talking about death something that is normal (as it should be!). I definitely recommend this course!"

    "I found the mentoring system extremely useful"

    "I realized I was missing a very important element in my work helping people through their cancer journey, as I had not paid attention to the end of life process. The course has enabled me to ensure that my clients and their families have a good end of life experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and particularly found the mentoring system extremely useful"

    Frequently asked questions:

    Q. How do the modules take place?

    All modules are set up as a self-paced course on our Membervault training platform. They include audio-visual material as well as texts and links to other resources. For your coaching calls you will meet your BIGS facilitators and fellow trainees online via Zoom technology. You will get full instructions in how to use this, and it is very straightforward. You will need to have a camera on your laptop/phone so you can be seen on the call.

    Q. Do I have to be insured?

    Ideally, yes. However, this is an upcoming market and in some countries there may not yet be insurance under the term ‘end of life planning facilitator’. So until that changes, insurance is not insisted on. You may already be covered by existing insurance, of course.

    Q. Is it a franchise?

    No, there is no payment to be made upfront, other than the cost of the Facilitators training itself. Thereafter, for all who have join the Community,  there is a monthly payment.

    Q. How much written work is there?

    The amount of written work is kept to a minimum; this training is experiential, and other mechanisms are in place to ensure you have understood and integrated the course material. These are mainly a requirement for preparation and homework to be completed,  a recorded session to be submitted at the end of the training, a short live presentation to be given during Part 3, and ongoing evaluation throughout the training.

    Q. What is needed for graduation, and for practicing as a facilitator?

    The following is needed for graduation:

    • your own copy of the Before I Go workbook fully completed
    • all your own personal legals in place and up to date
    • completion of at least 80% of the online course material
    • provision of a 30-minute recording of a session with a group/client

    If you then want to continue on and practice, you need to make a commitment to joining the Fab Facilitators Community. 

    You will receive a checklist to keep you straight as to what is needed.

    Q. Is it certified?

    You will receive a Certificate of Completion from us, and a Certificate from our accrediting body, the CPD Standards Office, an organisation that is recognised internationally. 

    By taking these actions, and joining the Community, you will be a certified Before I Go Solutions® End of Life Planning Facilitator and therefore authorised to use approved marketing material from Before I Go Solutions®, all other documentation as approved from the Before I Go Method® course.

    Q. Will there be supervision for graduates?

    Individual supervision is possible, to be arranged with one of the trainers privately.

    Q. How are we assessed?

    Assessment is continual throughout the course, based on you completing each module, interaction in class, role play participation and amount of reading completed. Towards the end of the course, a half hour recording of you practicing, either 1:1 or in a group, will be required for the assessment process to be completed. A 1:1 session with Michael or other authorised person is also required. 

    Q. Is it really possible to have 'fun' while exploring this topic?

    Yes! 

    There is an enormous amount of energy that gets released when people are given permission to talk freely about dying, death, grief, and all end of life matters, and that includes all emotions too.  Hence someone saying on one of the early courses ‘I never knew talking about death could be such a laugh!’  (She was a carer of her two elderly parents).

    Q. Can I work individually with people as well as groups?

    Yes. Sometimes it is easier for people to contemplate this subject when not in a group (although there are lots of benefits from groups); and you can also work with couples or families if you wish, and feel confident to do so.

    Q. What do I actually get as an End of Life Plan Facilitator?

    • Initial Intensive training as described above
    • 3 month Incubator Period in the Fab Facilitators Community - structured support to get you off to the best possible start
    • Certification as an End of Life Planning Facilitator upon successful completion of the training.
    • Ongoing help and support from the BIGS team (don’t under-estimate the power of this – it’s massive!

    Q. How can I get funding for my BIGS Facilitator Training?

    There are lots of creative ways to raise the funds for your place! For some practical guidelines and ideas on how you might fundraise to pay for your training CLICK HERE

    What past delegates have said

    Maureen Kures

    "This Training has Empowered Me"

    "The Before I Go Solutions Facilitator training course is rich and robust. This training empowers me to feel more knowledgeable and confident in the facilitation of family conversations related to end of life wishes. I am grateful to have the Before I Go Solutions in my training arsenal as I help families achieve a peaceful ending through advanced planning"
    Trained facilitator - Maureen Kures, USA

    "Thoroughly Recommend this very informative Course"

    "I love the fact I have completed my own EOL plan – and it has been a pleasure rather than a chore. We all know such endeavours don’t often make it to the top of our ‘things to do’ list. And yet, if not done, they remain a concern somewhere in our busy minds. It is truly liberating to get these plans made and as a consequence live a more fulfilling life. I thoroughly recommend this very informative course, with its role plays, video critiques, and real life stories that support the learning."
    Trained facilitator - Sharon Wood, UK

    CALL RECORDINGS

    This is where you'll find the recordings of our weekly live coaching calls and the chat transcripts. They will be available for the duration of the training; please watch them before that time is up (you will get a nudge to do so!)

    PART ONE: The Big Method Programme - Complete your own EOL Plan

    The BIG METHOD Programme is a stand alone course which will take you through all the steps needed to complete your own end-of-life plan.

    It is also the course you will have access to as a certified BIGS Facilitator to take your own clients through, should you decide to opt for this.

    PART TWO: Module 1 - End-of-Life Conversations

    Welcome to Part 2! This is where you change hats, so to speak, moving from focusing on your own personal situation, to thinking about others, and how you can help them.

    All of the rest of the Facilitators Training is about this - learning more so you can assist others in what they need to know to make their own decisions, and then helping them to take the action required. 

    Make sure you go through all components of each module - you do have to have completed all lessons in each module to be able to graduate. 

    Any questions about the actual training content or your process, reach out to Michael  michael@beforeigosolutions.com

    Any questions about challenges with the administration side, contact training@beforeigosolutions.com and one of our team will help you.

    PART TWO: Module 2 - Understanding Bereavement

    It's not uncommon to find yourself working with people experiencing grief. It's for that reason that we want to introduce you to information related to grief and bereavement so that you feel confident and comfortable.

    If grief work is something that interests you, there are many workshops and courses available online or in your community. The Grief Recovery Method is one such programme.

    PART TWO: Module 4 - Advance Care Planning

    In Module 4 - Advance Care Planning*, we explore the importance of planning for our future health care and treatment. As Facilitators, we will encourage our clients to reflect on their beliefs, values, and wishes for future health care and treatment and to consider who they will choose to represent their wishes in the event that they cannot communicate them.

    You are encouraged to bring your questions to the coaching calls.

    * Note: in Scotland, the term Anticipatory Care Plan (ACP) is often used.

    PART THREE: Module 5 - Action-Taking and Facilitation Skills

    This module links very much with the one on End of Life Conversations Skills, particularly the lessons on listening. Return to those to refresh your memory if you feel the need. 

    In the coaching calls, we will focus on facilitating group discussion and will often use role-play to explore various scenarios that you might encounter while working with clients in groups.

    Again, please bring your questions (and experiences) to the coaching calls.

    BONUS - Your Living Legacy Video Series

    An inspiring course of 5 short videos, each to be viewed before the other, setting out what actually is a living legacy, and helping you get going easily  and in an enjoyable way on how best to be remembered.

    With small, easy-to-manage tasks to do each day, you will  make a great start on what will become a beautiful gift for your friends and family, especially after you've gone.
