Blended Learning


Due to the current government-issued social distancing requirements, our college has been successfully transformed into a blended learning community for programme delivery. Irrespective of the format, the delivery remains on the cutting edge of best practice in counselling and psychotherapy education and training.


IICP College are now taking enrolments for our September 2022 Diploma in Integrative Supervision. This course will be of interest to professionals who work in an integrative manner. It will be of particular interest to counsellors, psychotherapists, guidance counsellors, psychologists, healthcare professionals, probation officers, social services personnel, managers, and all who supervise the work of others in the helping professions.


Supervision is viewed as a key component of many professions in the provision of support to practitioners, enhancement of ongoing learning, and, to a greater or lesser extent, it offers some protection to the public. This year-long course is intended for people from a variety of disciplines who are intending, beginning or already practising supervisors. Professionally accredited by IACP, this course is designed to enable individuals to extend their understanding and knowledge of supervision, incorporating theoretical inputs with opportunities for group discussion and experiential exercises.

 Programme Objectives:

  • To prepare mental health professionals to provide clinical supervision to those working directly with directly health professions.

Course Structure:

This is a part-time course, with 13 full teaching days (9:00am-5:00pm) delivered between September 2022 and February 2023, with additional time afforded to learners to attain the clinical supervision hours requirements, and self-directed learning.  Our classes are currently delivered remotely as tutorials, that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online portal Zoom™ and Moodle simultaneously.

Classes will remain online until such a time as it is feasible to return to face-to-face delivery.
