Training Courses  

About the Training Courses Section  

This section is divided into courses for therapeutic play and play therapy training accredited by Play Therapy UK (PTUK) and other courses.  

Accredited courses are ones that have been accredited by PTUK and meet the requirements of the Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists, which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority ( These courses have also been accredited through Play Therapy International (PTI).  Courses delivered in the UK are validated by Leeds Beckett (formerly Leeds Metropolitan) University and in the Republic of Ireland by NUI Galway (National University of Ireland). The main training provider, APAC, delivers play therapy courses in the UK in a collaborative partnership with Leeds Beckett (formerly Leeds Metropolitan) University and in the Republic of Ireland in partnership with the NUI Galway (National University of Ireland).
