NEWS - Our programmes have recently been independently reviewed by Revd Dr Helen Burn, Ministry-Division-appointed Quality Advisor to the Course for the diocesan bishops. Her report was very favourable and referred to: “…a highly qualified and committed staff team, a wide network of associate staff and tutors with whom relationships have been built up over many years and who constitute a dynamic group of reflective practitioners….”

She said that “Students spoke consistently highly of the quality of the teaching of the staff team, value greatly the mutual support and learning they experience, feel that the course is a stimulating and hospitable place for a wide range of spiritual traditions, and value being able to travel with those of very different views”.
