The orientation programme which runs Wednesday 28 September to Friday 30 September within the induction week is compulsory for all MA PCECPP students to attend. The hours are integral to the course hours that will ensure you meet the required 450 hours of training to become registered as a counsellor with BACP on completion of the course. 

The full induction programme for all courses will be available from 1 September, but we wanted to highlight this to you now, so you can ensure you are free to attend.


 MA Trauma Informed Practice students only

If you are unable to attend the full induction week due to work commitments, please prioritise attending on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 September, to obtain key information about the School of Education and your course, and to get to know your course tutors and fellow students. 

You are welcome and encouraged to attend the various orientation sessions running Wednesday to Friday (28 to 30 September) and invited to the welcome social event on Thursday afternoon (29 September), but these are all optional.
