This is a nationally recognised course [equivalent to a Level 2]; a random sample of portfolios will be internally moderated by Cruse Bereavement Care who will provide a certificate. You can ask for external accreditation by ‘Ascentis’ (Optional).

Due to the nature of the course, it would not be suitable for anyone who has experienced a significant personal bereavement within the last two years.

It is a course condition that you attend the first day and subsequent days and complete your Portfolio of work for all three days. No previous training is required.

There will be pre-course and post course interviews.

Following a successful post course interview, we will be running the Face to Face Elective on Saturdays 16th and 30th November, there is no further charge for this or for other available electives.

We look forward to hearing from you as we are now taking applications.
