A fantastic course for anyone who is involved in supporting other people – particularly in any pastoral role.

Lots of opportunity to learn together and receive peer feedback.

The course covers a vast array of topics looking at how we relate to one another and what influences impinge on our encounters with others.

Excellent course for those who want to support those who work in pastoral situations. The course covers practical skills and psychological content.

Loads of opportunity to try out new practical skills in small groups. Very supportive peer and tutor feedback.

The timings of the course make it accessible to even the busiest of people.
