Student UpdateJuly 2013 No. 18

CPCAB sends you best wishes for the rest of the summer at the end of another academic year. As always there have been highs and lows but we hope you have enjoyed your training this year and wish you a relaxing and happy break ready for the challenges of next year.


A reminder that we have produced guidance on the funding situation in two separate documents aimed at students and tutors respectively. These guides have been updated a number of times in recent months so if you haven’t checked them out recently it might be worth your while to look again.

A guide to funding for students:

CPCAB - our philosophy

To celebrate CPCAB's 20th anniversary we have commissioned some exciting creative projects to mark the occasion.

The first of these projects to be completed is a letterpressed copy of the CPCAB philosophy. The philosophy is an integral part of the organisation. It has been written beautifully and has evoked an emotional response from many tutors, colleagues and students as well as providing a huge amount of inspiration for those training to become counsellors. Therefore we felt it was really important to find a way to highlight its importance. By letterpressing the philosophy we have created a beautiful, artisan piece of work.

A limited edition run of 100 prints have been created and will soon be available to purchase online.

Instead of our usual final joke, we hope this picture of CPCAB staff working at Glastonbury Festival will make you smile. You might not find it easy to spot the CPCAB workers though as they all appear to have transformed into Michael Eavis...

We’re pleased to announce that the whole team had an exceptionally enjoyable time and look forward to being able to hand over a cheque for between £4,000 and £5,000 to chosen charity Somerset Headway in the near future.
