Ethos and Values
It is Metanoia's policy to treat students, prospective students and employees in the same way.
The Institute will not discriminate on the grounds of sex, marital status, ethnic origin, colour, religion, nationality, disability or any other grounds of discrimination not prohibited by legislation such as sexual orientation, age etc.
All our training courses are open to all people, subject to availability, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, marital status, religion or disability, provided they meet the required entry qualifications.
Standards and Quality
Our professional training programmes lead to registration with the appropriate regulatory bodies, BACP, UKCP, HPC and BPS. This means that our training programmes are monitored annually and re-accredited every five years.
Our academic standards and quality are monitored not only by the bodies mentioned above, but also by our validating universities, Middlesex University and London South Bank University. Each year our students who are taking optional academic qualifications are taken to academic boards where their training achievements are ratified and academic credits awarded.
Middlesex University and London South Bank University also appoint external examiners to our programmes to ensure that our training programmes meet required academic standards and are equivalent to other university trainings.
We report to our validating universities through their Quality Assurance and Assessment Standards. Middlesex University and London South Bank University are monitored by the Quality Assurance Agency.
