Course Details

Taster days are a one day event for anyone interested in taking up further training with Iron Mill College. If you wish to apply for any course, we encourage you to attend a Taster Day first.

Our Taster Days have been designed to provide you with an introduction to Iron Mill College as a place of learning and will provide you with an overview of the various training programmes we offer. You will also be encouraged to reflect upon your own experience and personal awareness.

It provides an opportunity for tutors to begin to build a relationship with you and for you to learn more about us, who we are and which course could be the right one for you.

We usually start with an introductory talk about the ethos of Iron Mill College and a brief discussion about some factors to consider when applying for a course.

The rest of the day is spent in group activities introducing some of the key skills and themes related to counselling and psychotherrapy, with opportunity to explore and experience different ways of working.

The day will end with small group interviews which take the form of a tutor-led open-discussion.

Venue: Cardiff, Exeter and Poole. 

Duration: One day 9.30am - 4.30pm

What our Students Say

"On the Supervision Course I learnt a lot about how to be a supervisor and it has given me confidence to go out and put my new knowledge and skills into practice. But more than that the tutor facilitated a truly responsive learning space that made the experience unique. The best course I have ever done!"
