A Genuine Institute

Although it is not generally well-known, the term 'Institute' can only be legally used if permission has been gained from the UK Government. Because we were able to show that we are eminent in the field of training and that we are involved in leading research, we were able to obtain the approval of the UK Secretary of State to term ourselves an 'Institute'.

Also, studying with us in our classroom gives you guaranteed membership of these major associations:

When you complete our 'in-house' Professional Practitioner course, you are automatically eligible for membership of any or all of these bodies. Completing our 2nd year advanced course will instantly give you a higher level of qualification. (In the UK. Eligibility might not be available for individuals living overseas.)

Our training course surpasses the National Occupation Standards and will allow you to register not just with our accrediting bodies but with many other leading associations as well - now click here to go immediately to our Professional Practitioner course page.

We are registered with the UK Register of Learning Providers, number: 10008779.
