Diploma Programme

GetAttachment (11) GetAttachment (3) GetAttachment (10)The Diploma Course runs a rolling programme of workshops and study days throughout the year.  Some of these days are suitable as CPD for practising members, and also for non-members from other disciplines, and so it is likely that from time to time other professionals will join students, and, as it is a rolling programme, students who have completed the Foundation Course at a different time may join you on some days.  We find this works extremely well as it enriches the overall learning experience.

Workshops and Study Days are held in Cheltenham and start at 9.30 am for a 10.00 am start, and finish at approximately 4.30 pm, and will be on either a Saturday or a Sunday. The cost for each day to students and practising members is £60.00 per day.  Bookings for each day should be made to Jenny Procter Tel:  01285 650993.  email jenniferprocter75@gmail.com
