How does the accreditation work?

  • To avoid overwhelm and to make sure you take action the course is broken up into a series of modules. 
  • Each of the 5 modules contains a collection of short video classes for you to watch and be inspired by.  You can watch these back over and over again. 
  • Each module will come with it's own downloadable workbook allowing you to clearly see the key points from each lesson and work on the reflective tasks. 
  • As we reach the end of a module you will be able to review your progress by using the Success Path and checking you have hit the milestones. 
  • At the end of the accreditation you will be required. to submit a 500 word reflective statement showing the impact of the work we've done together on your personal and professional life.
  • We understand that time's can get a little busy. We also don't want you to rush through the accreditation process. Therefore we give you two years to complete this.
