Integrated Tutor Training

SHEP Tutor Training courses are advanced courses and are not offered every  year.

There are two main types of  SHEP Tutor Training course: i) the SHEP Integrated Tutor Training Course and ii) SHEP Specialised Tutor Training Courses (which have particular themes).

For further information on Specialised Tutor Training in SHEP please visit our website:

It is possible to start Tutor Training with SHEP with either type of course.

The  Integrated Tutor Training Course will continue to be our principal Tutor Training programme. It is recommended, though not required, for all those who wish to work with SHEP as facilitators to deliver Short courses on SHEP’s Community Education for Well-being Programme.

Many people who complete the Integrated Tutor Training course also complete other Tutor Training courses in order to expand the range of thematic areas in which they might facilitate groups.

Indicative (Revised) Integrated Course -  planned to start September 2023 or latest January 2024

We will commence a revised version of the SHEP Integrated Tutor Training course either in September 2023 or latest January 2024

This course will be shorter than previous Integrated Tutor Training courses offered by SHEP. We expect there to be considerable interest in this course and it is unlikely that there will be places for all applicants. Further details will be available in 2022.
