Free Information Days

Full Day events inclusive from 10am to 3.30pm

Our free information days are a key component of our enquiry and application process which our prospective applicants find helpful and informative, and we actively encourage attendance at one of these days to support their decision making and application. The days offer the opportunity to visit the Institute in person, to meet with key staff including Programme Leaders, Directors and support staff and to find out more about the training programmes, our ethos and approach to training and to view our buildings and facilities.

Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate* Degrees are validated by Staffordshire University.

The nature of psychotherapy training is primarily relational and as such it is important for applicants to disclose any pre-existing relationships with SPTI staff and/or members (and other applicants where known) at the point of application.  This provides the opportunity to address potential implications for this at the interview stage thereby ensuring professional standards when attending to dual relationships, which Professional Bodies (for example, BACP and UKCP) recommend be avoided to prevent detrimental effects and promote professional accountability at all stages of training and practice.  We aim to ensure that this does not provide an unnecessary barrier to recruitment. Therefore, in cases of pre-existing relationships with current students and/or training staff adjustments may be suggested; this could include an alternative entry point or in some cases an alternative programme of study.

Applicants to SPTI clinical training programmes are reminded that all offers are subject to a satisfactory Criminal Records check via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

International Students SPTI is not a UK Home Office registered Sponsor with approval to admit overseas students. We can only consider applications from applicants who satisfy HOME fee residential status criteria e.g. UK/EU/EEA including Switzerland.
