** Where a Tutor applicant is in a country where Griffiths III courses are not already on-going, they should send a DVD of themselves carrying out a Griffiths III assessment with an anonymised copy of the Record and Drawing booklets and their scoring so a member of the Training Committee can review this. However, it is still recommended that all new tutors work with an experienced Griffiths III Tutor when running their first training course. The Chair of the Training Committee may be able to help identify a Tutor who is prepared to travel to assist in such a course.
