Chapters is located in Bede House on outskirts of the business park in Newton Aycliffe.
There is free parking so you'll never be late for class or a session because you're driving around in circles looking for a space!
Our centre is light, bright and comfortable with everything needed to create a productive, adult and fun space in which to learn. The atmosphere is friendly and positive, and as a private counselling training provider we are not clinical in our approach to the classroom. Instead we believe that the clients and students are the heart of our space and therefore we have a down to earth, relaxed environment where everyone is free and encouraged to be themselves.
We have kitchen facilities (including a fridge, microwaves and a bulging biscuit tin!). Oh...and the kettle rarely gets cold at Chapters!
For our learners we have a great range of resources specifically to meet the range of teaching methods and styles.
We have light and bright classrooms with large whiteboards, flipcharts, a large 42" plasma screen for presentations and a dvd player for students to watch themselves practising their skills on the big screen (that always goes down well!).
We have a huge collection of creative resources, play-doh, stones, shells, art materials, prompt cards, laptops with wireless internet access, music facilities, educational dvd's and dvd recording equipment. We also have an ever growing collection of counselling related books that students are welcome to sign out and borrow, we currently have around 200 books and piles of professional journals.
Chapters aim to provide high quality teaching in a safe and secure environment where learning and development is the primary focus.
Learning should be a tussle of ideas, cloudiness to clarity, life enhancing and also fun.
We want to challenge you to become the best that you can be, to reach your potential, to provide you with a mode of transport for a new leg of your life journey.
We aspire to teach you new skills, provoke new thoughts and perspectives and to hold you through the turbulent times.
This is another chapter in your life…one that we hope you’ll always remember with fondness.
