Learning Schedules

Classes take different formats in different regions.

  • Gauteng (+ Durbanville): Mostly classes take place once per week in the evening (or mornings where interest permit such as in Pretoria).
  • South Cape: Class only every second week (but twice in that week).
  • KZN/ Free State: Meeting once a month and with weekly online video conversations.
  • Important: a) If there are too many delegates for the learning experience we want to create the format will only be weekly but slightly longer classes. b) Too few participants (five or less) will entail only weekly online video with a group who prefers this format already. However since the small group is from the same region it will benefit them from meeting locally to review work which Coram Deo can help set up.

More about schedules here.

Students of Coram Deo can study with any of several learning partners in a number of regions. Some of these operate as independent licensed partners in a particular town or region while in other towns or regions students will study at host organisations or networks but directly with Coram Deo. If not studying through these residential/local communities (in either format: licensed or host), others study online with the aid of a personalised small group interactive video based platform. More on this option here.

Most of the learning partners will present the Advanced Certificate programme in Pastoral Narrative Therapy. Some are also licensed to present other programmes. These may include Alumni/ or our University of Pretoria accredited Supervision programme which is also available online where you will meet up with various experienced supervisors.
