Was just wondering if anyone could answer this question for me! I've been studying psychotherapy over the last 2yrs (well, finished first year of my degree after the foundation to be more precise). Having made quite a few friends on the foundation who since went to study elsewhere I had a run in with one or two recently and we were discussing various semantics of the courses etc.. anyhow, I just brought up the point of workshops because on my course, we're only offered workshops that have been setup and run by the college internally, which we have to pre-book beforehand, seemingly on their courses, things are a bit different.
I wasn't able to attend one of said workshops this year due to other arrangements that were unavoidable at the time.. offered to take another workshop outside of college, but was instead told that they'd speak to me about it at my progression meeting at the end of the semester...when this point was eventually brought up, they said i would have to do the workshop next year??
I'm wondering is there any formal legislation regarding which ones you can choose or is that left to the discretion of the institution? or any particular information about how that is/was done throughout your own studies? It seems to be a grey area in my college and they haven't been very helpful answering my questions. My colleagues seem to have much more freedom regarding which workshops they can choose. It's not a big deal per se, but it is where the content of said workshops are concerned, I would rather spend my money on the subjects that do concern my personal development rather than being forced to pick things that don't really interest me, so in that respect, it matters to me at least.
sorry for the long post.. too much coffee and sunshine this morning
