Thanks to all who have submitted applications for our 2020 CAT Practitioner Training in time for the initial deadline of 8th May. We have contacted all those who have applied, with the news that unfortunately the training will now be delayed until 2021.
You can read a statement from Dawn Bennett, Course Director, in the download below.practitioner-course-applicants-update-8-May-2020.docx
In this she outlines how the trainers’ group have considered pros and cons of an autumn 2020 start date. However, on reflection, the preference is now to postpone the start date to Spring or Autumn of 2021 (date to be confirmed).
During this pause we plan to develop a range of new training materials. These will include resources for blended learning, video based teaching materials, and supports for remote supervision and therapy. We expect these are likely to form a greater part of future provision. Our current cohorts will complete their training using these new materials and approaches.
Online interviews will go ahead as planned on 12th June for those who have already applied.
Please note that we welcome further applications for this intake. We will arrange further interview dates in the summer. If places remain, we may offer interviews again closer to the start of the course.
If you need any further information, then, as ever, do feel free to contact us. We will of course update the website with any further updates. You can follow us on Twitter – @CatalyseC – for pointers to news about this, and to stay connected with others in the CAT community.
