Discover the latest update to the Fresker’s journey!

In May, the Fresker’s journey was updated in all facilitators’ space, with the aim of making it clearer, more complete and more intuitive!

The basics of the Fresker’s journey

The Fresker’s journey is inspired by the martial arts belt system, and enables facilitators to enhance their pedagogical and technical skills. To pass each belt level, the facilitator must meet a certain number of prerequisites. From the orange belt upwards, the progression is based on the principle of peer validation to guarantee the harmonious evolution of all Freskers, ensure minimum standards of scientific knowledge and facilitation skills, and create links between members of the community.

What's new?

The aim of this update is to clarify the different stages of the journey, making them more accessible and understandable:

  • Improved ergonomics: a drop-down list for each belt explains the different steps and gives a comprehensive overview of your evolution. The addition of appropriate colors, first-person writing and question marks to answer your questions also make the page easier to read and understand.
  • The addition of self-assessment documents: before you pass your green or blue belt, you can fill in a self-evaluation grid as a trainer or instructor candidate to see where you stand. They will serve as a basis for your interviews. They also state that each facilitator’s path will be assessed on its own merits by the co-optors, to ensure the balance between required common ground shared by all members of the community, and the diversity of Freskers’ profile.

To be noted: the assessment as a trainer candidate document is currently being translated in English and will soon be available! Until then, you can use the French resource, or skip this step.

  • Better guidance: where can I sign up for a support brief? How can I find someone for the peer-validation steps? How can I get in touch with other green and blue aspirants? Corresponding links are provided to help you through the process!

You're a white belt and want to get started?

Don’t hesitate to take part in a welcoming session for new facilitators to ask all your questions and meet other Freskers! Upcoming dates can be viewed in the Community tab of your facilitators’ space.

This journey will continue to evolve in line with feedback from the community. Many thanks to Éliane Mathias and Virginie Dano, blue belts, for their time and collaboration with the permanent team on the topic!
