Short Courses Overview

Cliff College offers a variety of short courses through its expanding Short Courses programme, which includes days, weekends, mid-week, week long Certificate training courses, as well as study taken over several months at Diploma level. These are designed to provide inspiration, retreat, reflection, new learning and personal development, and also allow participants to explore other validated courses within the college. In addition we have added Cliff Retreats into the programme – opportunities for refreshment, space and spiritual growth. The Short Courses programme is a growing area of the college, and each year we are adding new training events and courses.

New for 2018-19! After several years of developing a strong Cliff College Certificate programme, we have extended our training to include Cliff College Diplomas, and are now delivering a brand new course with our new partners The Message Trust, Manchester . Exciting times!

One of the key areas of our Short Courses programme are Cliff College ‘Schools’. We have offered Summer School teaching weeks for some years. This academic year we are also adding a Worship; Leading and Preaching Spring School in March 2019.

Many of these short courses are delivered alongside our existing ministry partners, including Godly Play UK, Youth for Christ, Scripture Union, Bible Reading Fellowship, The Methodist Church & The Message Trust.

The day events, weekends, 3-day midweek training and retreat courses are open to anyone via a booking process. Cliff College Certificate & Diploma courses require an application, and the qualification is awarded for attendance and the submission of academic assessment that achieves the required pass mark.
