Beginning Chaplaincy

Professional Induction for Healthcare Chaplains
Saturday 6th – Wednesday 10th March 2021

Though normally a residential programme, in response to Covid-19 restrictions, we will be delivering in March 2021 by Zoom. Learning will involve online presentations and reflective group discussions. There will be opportunity for informal networking. The programme will also run on 9 -13 October 2021 and 5-9 March 2022.

The course begins at 12.30 pm on Saturday 6 March and concludes at 12.30 pm on Wednesday 10 March 2021. The timetable is themed around the domains from NES Scotland’s Capabilities and Competencies Framework for Healthcare Chaplains (plus one of our own)!

The structure of our timetable has been designed in collaboration with previous participants. It aims to balance the demands of personal and work life.
