The Course is of approximately 120 hours duration of classroom study and is delivered 1 weekend per month over a period of 10 months. The Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) is externally accredited by NCFE, which sets it apart from other training qualifications. The NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) has been approved as an NCFE centre and the HPD has been accredited by the NCFE to guarantee that it is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation.

Students are assessed throughout their training and there is a good deal of practical working to prepare you for working with clients on completion of the course.

At the end of the course students are asked to submit a portfolio, compiled throughout the training, for assessment both within the UK Academy Scotland and externally, leading to the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD). The HPD has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 4 using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptions.
