Part 2   £450

During this next phase, you have an overall set of criteria to work towards.  The emphasis is on you requesting from me what you require to complete it. Many of you will be getting experience in your professional work, however, it is typical that you won’t work with the variety of clients needed to fulfil the experience required. Along with helping out on courses and sessions, you will be able to tailor this experience in order to get the real confidence you need to develop your own line of work.

You will also develop a portfolio of evidence that will help clarify your level of first-hand experience.
