Is it possible to work full time alongside the training?

I have particular learning needs, is help available?

Please let us know on application if you have any specific circumstances that may affect your ability to partake in the course. We will endeavour to help you in every possible way we can.

Do you take on everyone who applies?

We review every application to make sure the training is best suited to your needs as a student. Spaces are limited so we recommend early application to avoid disappointment. This will be a first come first serve application process for succesful canditates.

When can I start teaching?

If you pass the training and exams you will receive your 200 hour RYT certificate on graduation. Once you have organised your own personal insurance (we will advise on the course) you will be able to teach right away.

Will I be able to teach at Psycle once I’ve graduated?

A 200 hour training does not normally meet the minimum requirements we look for when adding to the teaching family at Psycle. However, due to the level of contact with both Chris and Gemma through this course, we will consider any strong candidates for future teaching opportunities, and the possibility of progressing through a graduate programme to join the teaching team permanently.
