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: Exeter and Poole. 

Duration: One day 9.30am - 4.30pm

What our Students Say

“My experience with the iron Mill was the best decision in my life, I would rate the IMI 10/10. I'm not saying it was easy, especially starting a new career at the age of 50, but I got through with a lot of hard work and dedication. Our tutors were an inspiration during the four years. Since I got my Diploma I have been so busy counselling, only last week I was offered another new job, it's amazing.”
Elisabeth Bartlett - Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling Graduate

What our Students Say

"Every weekend is full of practical skills to learn with the added theoretical background needed to understand it. The makeup of the group allows us to learn from each others experiences and from people with different therapeutic backgrounds. It's a great course with a supportive and excellent tutor."
