**Due to the current climate we will be providing upcoming taster days via video link. All attendees will be provided with several links for the day (via email). You will listen to a lecture by one of the Founders of IATE followed by a Q&A. There will be time allocated for attendees to break off in to smaller art groups (within the video link system), you will need paper and crayons to hand. A separate link will then be provided for a one to one interview with the Head of Staff and Students. Further details concerning the running of the day will be provided in due course.
To apply for a training at the Institute for Arts in Therapy & Education you are required to attend one of our Taster Day / Application Days. These days run every month during the Academic Year.

Duty of care to applicants and students
We ask you to note that therapy training and interviews for therapy training can be experienced at times as emotionally challenging. Please be aware of this before applying. Unless trainees are truly emotionally available to their own traumatised child and have sufficiently addressed painful life experience leading to personal awareness, insight and robustness, it is not possible to be truly emotionally available to the distress of others. When we see potential in a trainee but feel they need to undergo more personal work, we ask for a year’s psychotherapy and to re-apply. All registered psychotherapists must undergo extensive personal psychotherapy as part of their training, We have limited places. Please be aware on applying that, due to limited resources, we regret that IATE is unable to offer feedback from applications that have been unsuccessful.
One of our duties of care to applicants and students is to ensure adequate provision is made so that psychological wellbeing is not put at risk. In light of this, occasionally an applicant or current student may be asked to provide appropriate written assurance from a medical or mental health professional. This may be before attending an interview, before attending a training or during a training itself. As part of the duty of care and assessment process we regularly ask some applicants to attend a second interview (free of charge). Applicants should not be alarmed as this is standard practice within our organisation.
