The Federation has a long tradition of welcoming and working with independent students in helping them develop their understanding of Christian faith and ethos in the context of today’s changing world. We also offer continuing professional development opportunities for clergy, lay workers, teachers, academics and others in helping professions who wish to explore topics and questions with which they deal with in their working days.

Continuing professional development (CPD)

Many people want to learn more about theology and the role of religion in the world today, or expand their understanding and experience of subjects that will help them in their professional roles as clergy, chaplains, teachers, social workers and other helping professions. The Federation is pleased to offer enrolment on any of our Level 4 Common Awards courses on a not-for-credit basis for professional development; as a CPD student, you will participate fully in the class but will not be asked to submit any work for assessment.

Tuition fees are £250 per module for not-for-credit registration. Please note that it is not possible to retrospectively apply for the award of credit for a module that has been taken on a not-for-credit basis.

Individuals may enrol on any of our Level 4 Common Awards courses on a not-for-credit basis for professional development; as a CPD student, you will not be asked to submit any work for assessment. Our full list of Level 4 courses for 2016-17, can be found here, or you can contact our office to speak with someone directly. The registration form for not-for-credit courses can be found here. CPD students may also be interested in our 2017 Summer Programme.

Taster courses

As an independent student, you may enrol on one of our Level 4 courses to “try out” the Common Awards programme and decide whether you want to continue your studies by applying for admission to the full programme. You will participate as a full student in the class and submit work for assessment.

Tuition fees are £750 for a module and must be paid in full at the time of registration.

Achievement of “A” Levels is normally required for admission to Level 4 work; in some cases, professional experience may e considered as alternative preparation. Please contact us if you are not sure!

If English is not your first language, you must be able to demonstrate that you have achieved the required standard of English Language Proficiency through a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 in written and oral comprehension.
