Why train with us?

We offer a number of courses for both individual and professional development. All meet high academic standards with an emphasis on the importance of experiential learning. We encourage our students to explore different ways of working, and to develop the skills to work with a range of clients and presenting issues. We have always attracted intellectually curious students.

The Minster Centre offers more face-to-face training hours and a greater opportunity for personal development than many other training organisations. More information...
