Diploma of Expressive Arts 2017-08-17T14:36:14+00:00

A journey to everything that you can be.
The foundation of this course is a mix of transpersonal and mainstream psychology and its building blocks are all the major forms of expressive arts.

Our students learn how to guide these individual journeys through a wide range of therapeutic approaches that include art, poetry, writing, music, movement and dance, psychodrama and sand-play. This multi-streamed approach takes creative therapy to a whole new level.

We’ve designed our Diploma of Expressive Arts for people who understand the power of creative expression and who have a passion for helping people either in aged, disability and community services. It’s a wholistic journey to becoming everything you can be – and empowering you with the skills to help others do the same.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Although there are no course-specific entry requirements to study this qualification, CCM does ensure that all students who wish to study with us are also suitable.

To determine suitability and ensure all enrolled students can successfully complete the course, CCM assesses a potential student’s Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) skills, computer literacy and suitability to the course they wish to enrol in.

LLN

To establish Language Literacy and Numeracy skills, CCM requires students to provide evidence in the form of:

  • a Certificate III or higher qualification; or
  • an Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) assessment result of Level 3 or above; or
  • a Higher School Certificate (HSC), or equivalent, with 50% or more, in both Math and English.

Computer Literacy

As all courses offered by CCM incorporate use of CCM’s online learning platform, whether it be in accessing course materials or submitting course work for assessment, CCM requires all students to have:

  • access to a computer for the duration of the course;
  • access to the internet as required; and
  • computer literacy skills at Level 3 of the ACSF.

Course Suitability

As part of the enrolment process, each student is also interviewed to ascertain their individual interests in undertaking the course, to ensure it is suitable for both their personal and career aspirations. Dependent on the outcome of the discussion, Course Advisors are able to suggest the most appropriate course, location and mode of delivery for the individual student.
