Metanoia Institute is committed to the development of a fair and inclusive community.
We stand against prejudice, discrimination and all forms of stereotyping.
We aspire to ensure that every student can fulfil their potential regardless of their background or circumstance. As an institution, we seek to recognise, value, promote and celebrate diversity.
We understand that equality and equity can be different concepts.

Standards and Quality
Our professional training programmes lead to registration with the appropriate regulatory bodies, BACP, UKCP, HCPC 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 higher education organisation Middlesex 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 also appoints external examiners to our courses to ensure that our training programmes meet required academic standards and are equivalent to other university undergraduate and postgraduate courses and CPDs.
We report to our validating universities through their Quality Assurance and Assessment Standards. Middlesex University are monitored by the Quality Assurance Agency.
