There are so many complementary therapy courses available, so choosing a course that will help you to feel ready for practice is essential. Our focus is not just on the theory learning, we understand that to prepare you for your career, the right level of practical experience is essential. We offer introductory courses, foundation level and accredited Diplomas. For qualified therapists we have a range of continuing professional development (CPD) courses to increase skills, knowledge and evidence based practice. Training within an NHS school prepares you for practice with a wide range of clients and helps you to gain a thorough understanding of how disease and medicine can impact on your practice, maximising benefits while minimising risk.
All of our diploma courses are accredited by ITEC (International Therapies Examinations Council) and meet the requirements of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). This means that our courses fulfil the requirements set within the National Occupational Standards, but go far beyond that. Our graduates are trained to the standard required to allow them full membership of the CNHC and FHT, both approved by the Professional Standards Agency to hold a register of approved practitioners, vital for those wanting to work within the complementary therapies industry.
