Candidates for any ministry within the Church of Scotland have to undertake a series of practical placements during which they are attached to a local congregation under the supervision of a trained and accredited supervisor.
These placements vary in length and some are full-time, depending on the course of formation being followed.
All supervisors are given full training, including in-service, and are well supported by the staff of the Faith Nurture Forum in this most important task.
For those training for FTWS or Diaconate, your final placement will be a 15-month probationary period. For those training for OLM it will be 12-months.
