Am I expected to pay for refreshments?
No – unlike some course providers, we supply you with as much complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits as you want!

We have spare paper, pens, pencils, etc., but we find people prefer to bring their own notebooks, highlighters, colours, etc.
Can I bring my laptop for note taking and research?
Yes you can, and we offer free Wi-Fi. Please note, however, although we do keep unattended areas locked, these are your own responsibility and need to be covered by your own insurance.
Can I take pictures during the course to add to my notes?
Yes, but please confine pictures to hands and feet! That is, don’t take pictures that identify other students unless you have their express permission.
Do I really get two weeks free extra training when I do my diploma?
Yes! It’s free, gratis, and for nothing we understand that you may want to consolidate your skills and ask more questions, so do take the opportunity!
How does the extra training work and what do you get out of it?
You’ll be a guided practitioner – a bit like an intern. You get extra practise under supervision, and can ask questions throughout. We get a ‘free’ clinician during that period and, even more importantly, we have the satisfaction of knowing there is another good, well-trained practitioner out there!
Do I need to be CRB checked to work in a clinic?
A CRB is now called a DBS, and yes you will need to be checked if you intend to work in clinics, residential homes and assisted living homes. Your employer should visit http://www.gov.uk/crb-criminal-records-bureau-check/overview to apply for a DBS on your behalf.
