Chaplaincy Skills

28 February-3 March 2022 (Online)

This online course will cover basic skills in chaplaincy and key aspects of chaplaincy, including religious, spiritual and pastoral care in a range of contexts of school, college, young offenders and hospital. It will consider the history and theological basis of chaplaincy and engage in exploring various models of chaplaincy from a theoretical and practical perspective.


We will use a range of interactive learning approaches to reflect on chaplaincy in context and develop skills relevant to ministry within a chaplaincy setting.  Our reflections will be enhanced through input from visiting practitioners with experience in their specific fields of chaplaincy.

If you choose to submit the assignment you will get a certificate of achievement from CYM, levelled pass, merit or distinction as well as more detailed feedback on your marked assessment.

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.
