The Creative Arts Supervision Diploma is a one year, part-time, course (January to December) which offers experienced Arts therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, play therapists and dance movement therapists a training in creative, clinical supervision.
The CAST training course, recognised by the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth) will appeal to Arts therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, play therapists and dance movement therapists who are seeking a supervision training that offers a sound theoretical base and a unique combination of experiential and theoretical modules to fully support the creative approach to supervision.
Regular supervision is a requirement of the Health and Social Care Professions (HCPC), BADth and all counselling and therapy professional bodies. Its function is to provide an objective overview of the dynamics present in the therapy relationship. Supervision monitors ethical standards and practice and encourages professional development.
CAST is a long established supervision training designed by a dynamic team of HCPC registered creative therapists and supervisors with many successful cohorts following it’s opening in 1998. 2018 sees this innovative and popular course moving to Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
The programme is delivered over one year with 120 contact hours and is designed to allow time for reflection and integration. Learners are required to be in personal therapy for the duration of the training.

Applicants must have IELTS score of 7.0 or equivalent in the English language.
