Project Description

If you would like to become a LifeRites celebrant, the first step is to complete the Foundation certificate. This will qualify you as an assistant celebrant. You may then continue on to the Diploma and gain full registered status with the organisation.

Foundation Certificate

See our events page for details of the next course.

The foundation course comprises of practical work at intervals over four weekends combined with written work. Each trainee is assigned a mentor for support and advice.

Assessment is at the end of the course and is comprised of input from the mentor, practical and written work and a panel interview. By the end of this course, students will know whether they wish to continue on to the diploma year and seek registration with LifeRites.

Course fees: £950. Payment plans are available.

Diploma

Entry requirements: Foundation Certificate

The Diploma Course comprises distance learning, attendance at professional development weekends, a long weekend of practical study, suitable self-placement with an appropriate agency (e.g. hospice, hospital chaplaincy, registrar, funeral directors, crematorium, etc.) and mentorship with a registered Celebrant.

Assessment is by written components, practical assignments, viva and recommendation of the mentor. Once accepted, there will be a period of probation where they will continue to work with their mentor to refine their skills. The Diploma may be studied over one, two or three years.

Advanced Diploma

Entry Requirements: Diploma

The third year of the course comprises of individual specialist research by a practising celebrant to produce a 10,000-15,000-word dissertation. Students arrange personal tutorial time throughout the course with their individual mentor.
