How does it work?

Your course is a blended learning approach. This means that you will have self-study alongside class sessions once a month, with a commitment of around 15-20 hours per month (depending on learning speed). You will complete an assessment for each module, ranging from essays, quizzes and developing therapeutic materials, as well as 60 hours of practice and three case studies at the end of your course.

The Level 4 Diploma is NOT offered as an online course. To complete the course the face to face sessions must be attended.

Is the qualification recognised?

Yes. The Level 4 Diploma is accredited and regulated by both the ACCPH and also the International Authority of Professional Coaches and Mentors. This ensures the standards of content and provision of course materials and tutors.
