Training Academy

Centre for high quality, student
focused, learning

“Committed to upholding the highest standards for both teaching and learning”.

The Training Academy at Shaw Therapy Centre is a private training school dedicated to the delivery of high quality, student focused, learning.

The small classes (maximum class size 12), provide the perfect opportunity for our tutors to work with and support individuals and classes in delivering a focused, supported learning environment. The class sizes, allow our students to build strong
and lasting relationships with their classmates and help nurture a supportive environment helping everyone achieve their very best.

Our tutors are all qualified,  experienced and are still actively involved in their field (in addition to holding teaching qualifications). They help provide a rich, real-world experience that we believe is second to none.

Being based inside Shaw Therapy Centre means our students get the opportunity to undertake skills work in rooms used by therapist on a daily basis.

The academy works closely with the awarding bodies and is committed to upholding the highest of standards in both the teaching and student experience.

We would love to welcome you to our growing community of students.
