How we deliver
The Swansea LPC is divided into two teaching periods.
Stage 1, which looks at core practice areas, takes place during the first 24 weeks to the end of February. During the 10-week Stage 2 that follows you will choose three vocational elective subjects to study.
Both stages are delivered via introductory, interactive sessions in large groups and then smaller sessions studying real life professional case studies. These sessions are designed to build confidence and practise essential skills in a friendly, professional rewarding environment.
The Swansea LPC is renowned for the excellence of its pastoral care. Personal tutors provide best practice guidance for personal development and training.
During reading week in October there is no teaching.
Class contact consists of around four to five hours, three days a week with two days free from teaching so that students can consolidate learning and prepare for the following week.
Students have up to five years in which to complete the course. After finishing Stage 1 they can take time away to develop experience in practice before returning to complete Stage 2.
