Dear Student,

This is to acknowledge receipt of your registration fee for the Programme in the Diploma in Social Studies and Counselling Skills.

If you have not already filled out an enrolment form, you can do so here. On receipt of your enrolment form, your first module will be sent to you and a tutor will be allocated to you and details on how to access the resource site.

When you receive your first module, you may have questions on how to get started so feel free to contact Barbara at barbara@arlt-foundation.org who will be your assistant tutor and will help you to get organised and answer any of your questions and provide you with sample assignments etc.

You have twelve months to complete your course, so you should arrange your assignment diary according to your own convenience.  Do not feel under pressure: if you need more time at the end of your course year, the possibility exists to continue (a nominal continuation fee applies).
