Society of Homeopaths
The Society of Homeopaths is the largest organisation registering professional homeopaths in the UK. Established in 1978, they are also the longest standing body representing homeopaths.
The School of Homeopathy's attendance course was the first course to achieve The Society of Homeopaths prestigious recognition status in 1994. The School is reviewed annually with an in-depth quality assurance evaluations taking place every few years. At last evaluation in March 2013 we gained the maximum 5 year term.
The School of Homeopathy's home study course was the first ever distance learning course to achieve The Society of Homeopaths 'conditional recognition' status in 2014. Once we complete the next step in the recognition process we are confident we will gain full recognition. Recognition of our home study programme is a true mark of quality and demonstrates that no matter which study method students choose they are assured of the same high quality programme.
The Education Department of the Society of Homeopaths recognises courses because they have met their criteria of quality and accountability, and they are at the appropriate Higher Education level. Students qualifying from these courses are immediately eligible to apply to the Society of Homeopaths’ Register.
Courses must show that they have appropriate facilities, staffing, administration, and educational resources. They must also be able to demonstrate clear course policy and ethos which will be reflected in curriculum (teaching, learning and assessment), student progression and achievement, student support and guidance. Their clinical education is in line with the Society’s Clinical Education Guidelines. Recognised courses agree to continue to develop, through peer and self evaluation, reflection and review, and by links with the Society’s education staff.
It's been a wonderful progression to see the Society and the School of Homeopathy walk alongside each other over these thirty years, contributing so enormously to the development of homeopathy in the UK today.
