Course Requirements

As a minimum requirement you must have English GCSE and be able to confidently produce work at Level 2 standard. We are able to take people of 18 years or over.

You will need to understand the demanding and personal nature of the course. Whilst this course is by no means ‘therapy’ for some it can present an emotional challenge.
