Read the answers to some of our frequently asked questions on topics such as course structure, assessment format, who attends the course and what you can go on to do once you have competed the Diploma.

Are the assessments hard?2021-06-07T12:27:59+10:00

This sounds unlikely; our students report that completing their assessments is one of the things they enjoyed the most about the course!

The written assessments for the Diploma are generally structured as a demonstration of your understanding of a core concept or idea and a personal reflection. This may take the form of an essay or a learning journal.

Other assessments are based on your participation and engagement during the six days face-to-face.

All assessments are marked on a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ basis. In the event that your work is marked ‘not yet competent’, we have people who will work with you to help you meet the required standard and, you will have other opportunities to resubmit.

We can be flexible with the way in which the assessments are administered.

Retreat – can I bring my family?2021-03-20T12:46:33+11:00

You can of course bring your family on the retreat and they will have to be booked into the retreat at additional cost. We have had previous applicants do this in the past.

One thing we will add is that you may miss out on the full ‘retreat experience’, whereby you have quiet time outside of the sessions to reflect on the content and assignments, and connect with others in the group. As the days are full and highly engaging, participants often find themselves quite tired at the end of each day, and are grateful for the quiet time in the evenings to rest.

Applicants in the past have expressed that having time away from the responsibilities of family has given them more time to fully absorb and digest the content, get more out of the wonderful retreat experience and return to their families as the best version of themselves.

Please note that we have worked with attendees to extend the discounted rate of the accommodation over the weekend following the Diploma course, in order for family to join them post retreat.

Do you provide discounts/Scholarships?2021-03-20T12:43:04+11:00

At this stage we do not offer scholarship places for the Diploma. As the course is privately run, there is no FEE HELP assistance.

If you would like to have a flexible payment plan created for you we would need to know which course you would like to attend and when you would be able to enrol and pay the deposit. Then we will speak to accounts to find out what is available for you. Please be aware that all payment plans incur a 5% administration fee.
