Distance learning courses and school in-set days for pastoral care and the mentoring of children and young people

Mentoring and counselling the young is a challenge; is demanding of deep, lasting commitment; it can drain one’s energy and bring a lifetime of joy!

I am delighted that you are looking for pastoral care training because you wish to work with children and young people; their needs are so great.

Undertaken with no other motive but unconditional love it will provide real benefits for the young and fulfilment of the mentor.

I offer a variety of distance learning courses as well as a school in-set training day (UK only).

Distance learning courses are paid for through PayPal - once payment has cleared you will be sent an email with all course material including recommended reading and exercises to complete.

You can choose to have your course exercises graded if you wish in which case high standards of work are expected. Certificates will be issued to all who successfully complete a course where the exercise has been submitted and graded.

A lifetime of practical experience and training

Every opinion contained in the course notes is based upon what I have discovered and learned during more than 50 years involved in work with the young; opinions that result from testing knowledge and understanding by two criteria:

  1. Does this make sense? and
  2. Does it work, in practice?

I would ask you to read the About page because the information it contains will help you to set my opinions in their proper context.
