Older People Diploma

The APT Diploma for working in Older People's Mental Health.

The APT Diploma for working with Older People provides 96 hours of focused training and is fully accredited by APT. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.

Executive Summary:

The APT Diploma for Working with Older People provides 96 hours of training over 6-12 months. We bring all the modules to you for a fixed fee, to eliminate travel and expenses costs, and to ensure you get a supportive group addressing the same material.

The diploma comprises 15 days of training made up from your 5 chosen modules/courses below (plus one final day).

After every module students are expected to sit an exam. To be awarded the diploma, students must attend at least 80% of the live taught modules, pass at least 90% of the exams (with no more than one third of being completed on the web).

To obtain a distinction, students must submit and pass at least 2 written case studies (3,000 - 4,000 words) describing the work based application of the approach they have studied in that module.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Diploma in Working with Older People, and receive a certificate to this effect and accreditation which gains you access to the resources associated with the course.

Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation to use the resources lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher and associated online exam.

Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
