Description of modules
Framework, skills and ethics
This core module, along with the module Approaches to Spiritual Formation, forms the theoretical framework and practical perspective. It facilitates the application of both theory and relational skills to the practice of pastoral care, chaplaincy, spiritual direction and mentoring/coaching.
Approaches to Spiritual Formation
An approach which underpins all else in our lives, providing focus; a clearly articulated process and a practice designed to heighten our awareness of God.
This module explores and progresses that awareness in our daily lives.
This module is designed to equip students to effectively manage the challenge of being a religious representative in secular institutions, such as hospitals, educational establishments or the military. It aims to examine the potential of chaplaincy as a form of Christian mission, serving others by providing support and spiritual guidance in a variety of contexts. This includes critical reflection on working with people of other faiths or no faith.
The module will enable students to develop a philosophy of chaplaincy consistent with their personal strengths, training and the particular context in which they currently operate, or might do so in the future.
Students are required to have obtained a minimum of one of the following:
- DipHE in a related subject or equivalent professional qualification
- Foundation degree or HND or equivalent HE qualification in a related subject
