Acid the ILP read and memorise questions, the introduction (this is a 15 page single spaced A4 document, they read all the letters from pcychologists, mininsters, etc, they read any newspaper articals (the positive ones about landmark)
Participants in ILP commit to a six month training programme with four weekend courses with other ILP groups in their country/region and weekly classrooms. The classrooms are usually 4 to 5 hours long
What courses have to be taken before they enroll in ILP courses?
How do these people fit all this into their schedules? Doesn't it affect their family life, work, etc?
There are year committments, on assisting teams,,, Are these signed contracts? Are they paid or is it volonteer work and time that they are giving?
To be eligable for ILP they must have completed the Landmark Forum and Advanced course and completed a minimum of 6 weeks assisting. However centre managers can get exceptions but the person must have done the landmark forum as a minimum and should generally be registered in the advanced course
They fit landmark into their schedule around their work and family committments. usually their family or social committments suffer. sometimes their work.
When I did ILP I would finish teaching then drive to the centre with another person from ILP then stay there till 9 or 10 at night and most weekends. during lunch my "buddy" from ILP would meet me and we would work on memorising the documents and preparing for classrooms or weekends.
Year long commitments on assisting teams are just that assisting, yes they sign an agreement everyone who assists signs an agreement and usually if they try to quit this is used to hold them to their word (integrity) Unless you are a paid staff member you are not paid at all. Landmark only stays in business because of the volunteers. each staff member needs a minimum of 40 people to assist them do their job. staff have usually completed the ILP and the curriculum for living (forum, LFIA seminar, advanced course and selp) as a minimum but are usually expected to have done the communication programme.
Glam there are people who virtually work a 40 hour week for landmark with out pay. Paid staff work a minimum of 60 hours per week and are at the office from 10am to 9pm and 10 to 6 on saturdays. usually most staff get to work at 8 or 9am so they have time before everyone comes in to get stuff done. all staff have metal nametags with the landmark name on them. if she is staff she will have one of them near her at all times.
