Chaplaincy in Education

Next date in 2022 - to be announced

In this course we will look at the historic roots of chaplaincy and explore the theology that underpins it. The various models of chaplaincy in schools and colleges will be examined through the lens of theology and practice with contributions from experienced schools chaplains.



The course will touch upon chaplaincy practice by examining the role of the chaplain in areas of curriculum, spiritual development, collective worship, mentoring and pastoral care and conclude by a critical examination of the future of chaplaincy taking into account current issues relating to multi faith working and ethical dilemmas.


The course will include input from visiting chaplains.

No, unfortunately not this year. CYM is changing its validation to Newman University for 2021, and our previous partner is not able to accept new registrations. It might be possible to formally submit your assignment in future years and get credit then, as a stand alone module, or as part of a CYM BA or MA course, but we are not able to guarantee that.

A successful assignment will serve as an equivalent qualification to enter our BA or MA course next year, subject to other application procedures, and other colleges might accept this, but you will need to check with them.

Level 4 is the equivalent of 1st year of a BA course.
Level 7 is the equivalent of an MA module.
