Using a combination of self-study, shared video and live and pre-recorded webinars we are able to deliver the course content to students worldwide via our online classroom. 

The theory elements are delivered through podcasts, which delegates access via the portal on our website and watch at a time that is convenient to them. At the end of each podcast delegates are set tasks to incorporate into their sessions. Delegates are required to record these sessions and clips are then uploaded to our secure online classroom so they can be watched and reviewed by the group during the live webinars, with the course tutors giving feedback, advice and ideas for further development. Delegates are required to participate in a minimum of 80% of the webinars in order to complete the course.  At the end of the course delegates are required to submit post-course written and video assignments. Delegates who successfully complete the course will be eligible to undertake our advanced training if they wish to. 

Duration: 6 months

CEUs: 36

Date: The course will start in Summer 2024 and run for six months (exact dates to be confirmed).
