About the CTS

We are very proud that we are the the first and only private training provider in the UK that has been granted the status of offering university credit rated reflexology and massage qualifications. Anyone can accredit a course but only a higher education authority such as a university can credit rate a course.

Courses are available in London, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle. A non-repayable grant for tuition fees is available from the Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS).

No other private training provider in the UK offers Clinical Reflexology and Swedish Massage courses fully at this highest level with the highest amount of credits.

You will receive a nationally recognised qualification from a school with an exceptional reputation.

Melanie, your principal is the winner of the Association of Reflexologists Most Inspirational Tutor Award 2015. This award is given to the tutor that has inspired their students and has went above and beyond what is required. The award is given based on student’s feedback and nominations.

Therapists are trained to an exceptional standard and we are dedicated to providing the most professional, up-to-date complementary medicine training within the UK.

During the moderation process by an independent Government recognised awarding body in 2011, students were asked to anonymously rate their learning experience on a scale of one – five (one being excellent). All students granted us a rating of one.

We initially offered ABC Awards complementary therapy courses. In the first 2 years of our school operating, all students passed the independently set and marked final exam.  This we are told from ABC Awards and other educational institutions is exceptional and very unique. We continue with these high standards and laterally all government recognised, awarding body reflexology and massage courses are now part of continuous assessment with no final exam.

We have small class sizes which ensure individual attention.

The Complementary Therapy School delivers comprehensive complementary therapy training and has exceptional staff helping students to become outstanding practitioners.

Our university credit rated qualifications enables employers such as the NHS, other learning establishments and patients to understand exactly what level of training you have undertaken and how many credits you have achieved. If you study a course with no level and credits, this is especially tricky if you are seeking to progress to further study or if you trying to demonstrate to potential employers the level of qualification that you hold. Please see the benefit link at the bottom of the page for the vital importance of studying this type of qualification.

You will have excellent support in between the teaching days.

In the unfortunate event that students fall ill during the course, we can offer a flexible learning plan whereby you can come back on to the course the next year and at no extra charge. Alternatively, missed days can be completed at another one of our schools.

Very uniquely, we offer life -time graduate support. Graduates are encouraged to contact the school with any therapy or business related query they may have.
