If you wish to apply for any course you need to attend a Taster Day/Taster Evening.
What is a Taster Day / Evening?
The Taster Day / Evening provides an essential introduction to all courses at The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE), they form an integral part of the interview process.
The Taster Day/Evening is tailor-made in such a way to allow for tutors to begin to build a relationship with you and for you to start the process of using the Arts as a Psychotherapeutic tool, across all levels.
To begin with there is an audio- visual presentation, introducing you to the clinical techniques, theory and practice covered on the courses at the Institute and illustrated by moving and emotionally powerful case studies. This is followed by participation in 2 integrative Arts workshops utilising the 7 different art forms we study. The day is concluded by a group interview at the end of the day which will explore psychological themes and invite personal reflection on life events
How long does it last?
A Taster Day runs from 9:00am (registration) to 5:15pm approx including the group interview.
A Taster Evening is exactly the same in structure but includes one integrative arts workshop; thus the evening lasts from 6:00pm (registration) to 9:00pm.

Duty of care to applicants and students
We ask you to note that therapy trainings and interviews for therapy training can be experienced at times as emotionally challenging. One of our duties of care to applicants and students is to ensure adequate provision is made so that psychological wellbeing is not 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. Please do not hesitate to contact the office if you have any concerns about this.
