From January 1st 2019, there is no longer a free choice element to the
courses that make up Part 1 of the HG Diploma. Part 1 is now made up of
the 16 mandatory courses listed below (8 online and 8 attended) as listed below.

NOTE: If you started your diploma before 2019, don’t worry, we are operating a transition period and the free choice courses you have done will still count towards Part 1. Please feel free to contact us on 00 44 (0)1323 811690 to discuss your Part 1 training.

Part 1

This first stage of the Human Givens Diploma involves completing a total of eight online courses and eight attended workshops (see list below). You will also need to study the course reading list.

The core diploma courses are listed below, but you can also identify a core diploma subject by the logo on the left.

If you're interested in taking the Diploma, we would recommend that you take a couple of online courses or attend at least one or two training days before committing yourself to the whole course so that you can see whether it's right for you.

If you've already attended some of our courses, you may in fact find that you're already well on your way to completing Part 1. You will need to have completed all of the Part 1 diploma-linked courses by the time you attend the first week of Part 2

You should complete all Part 1 courses before you attend the two-week intensive diploma weeks which makeup Part 2 of the course. This is to ensure that you have gained enough essential background knowledge and information and also had plenty of opportunity to practise for yourself the various new skills you have learnt so that you can derive the most benefit from the two-week course.

If you started your Diploma before 1st January 2019, you must complete any remaining free-choice Part 1 courses within eighteen months of finishing Part 2.

If you have any further questions about the training you have done to date or what you still need to do to complete Part 1, please don't hesitate to contact the College Registrar, Mark Thomas, on 01323 811690 or registrar@humangivenscollege.com
