Newman University in partnership with the Centre for Paediatric Spiritual Care delivers the only Postgraduate Certificate in Paediatric and Maternity Chaplaincy available in the UK. We are applying to the UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy for this to be a qualifying course for registration.
This programme is run alongside Newman University’s highly regarded own Postgraduate Certificate in Chaplaincy and follows the same 3x 20 credit modules although this course is run over 18-24 months on a rolling programme:
The course offers a professional development qualification for those wishing to gain further grounding in both the theological and pastoral aspects of their Chaplaincy.
Postgraduate Certificate - PgCert
|Level||RQF Level 7|
You will normally need a good undergraduate degree or equivalent or substantial experiential learning and demonstrate the ability to study at postgraduate level.
You will normally be working as a chaplain or similar in a paid or voluntary capacity for the equivalent of 2 sessions a week for each of the modules. One of your referees will need to be a person with direct experience of your practice, ideally also a chaplain. We will discuss your experience at interview. All applicants will be interviewed in person or over zoom, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and meet one of the teaching team.
There are a limited number of opportunities to be based at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital for the practice element of the course.
Email Rev Paul Nash email@example.com if you are interested in this option.
