Beginning at the end of January 2023, Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care explores a range of chaplaincy skills and applies them to different chaplaincy contexts including healthcare, schools, prison, and sport. Over the course of 12 classes foundational knowledge will be developed serving as an excellent introduction to chaplaincy in theory and practice.

Spiritual care is at the heart of chaplaincy and seeks to listen and offer support to people of all faiths and none. This module will explore the meaning of spiritual care as it relates to religious care. Pastoral issues arising from a variety of contexts will be explored and best spiritual care practice will be evaluated.

The future shape and development of chaplaincy will also be considered, including the challenges and opportunities this may involve.

The class runs online via Zoom using discussion and teaching and interactive learning alongside the class tutor and fellow students. Classes run on Tuesday evenings between 7:30pm and 9:30pm allowing maximum flexibility to fit study around other commitments. The module is equivalent to 20 credits at Level 7 in the SQCF framework (1st year University) and is validated by the University of the West of Scotland. Fees are £500 which includes access to the Digital Theological Library allowing access to all resources from wherever you are based as well as access to Aula, the Virtual Learning Environment, which enhances distance learning.
