NLP Diploma Programme – Level 1 Foundation Training

Are you looking to learn strong foundational level NLP skills to use in your own life and the lives of those around you both personally and professionally?

Are you looking for easy to learn and practical NLP tools to manage yourself, understand and communicate better with others and get really clear about what’s important to you in your life and work?

What is NLP?

NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming and describes the 3 parts of the human communication process.

  • The Neurological effect
  • The Language Patterns we use
  • The Programming is about our habitual programmes and behaviours and also how we can re-write those programmes

NLP was originally developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder and is the study of excellence. They believed it was possible to identify the patterns of thoughts and behaviours of successful individuals and to teach or model them to others.

The NLP Diploma programme has been specifically created as a result of feedback from people like you who are looking for level 1 (introduction) training leading to strong foundations in NLP Even though NLP gives you the perfect tools for a practising coach, you do not need to have knowledge or experience in coaching to enrol on this Diploma as it is a completely stand alone programme.

When enrolling on the Diploma Programme you will join as a cohort with our NLP Practitioner students at the beginning of their training too, which means you are able to continue your journey and easily progress to the more advanced Practitioner level programme if you wish to.

We are also pleased to say our NLP Diploma is fully accredited by INLPTA (The International NLP Trainers Association), and meets their full assessment criteria.

Enrolment Fees

Should you wish to apply to enrol on the NLP Diploma, our fees are simple and easy to understand. The Diploma has an enrolment fee of £1,997 +vat and with the bursary applied can be as little as £1,397+vat on average.


Why we have introduced the bursary scheme.

As an organisation we know the power that NLP has to change lives, and we want to support that as much as we can – we also recognise and acknowledge that there maybe people who have the skill and potential to be seriously great and successful but are unable to move on and enrol because of finances and so the Academy reflected on what we could do so support those people to move forward

Where eligibility is concerned the very simple criteria is that you are covering the enrolment fees yourself or through your own small business and you are not been sponsored by your employer.

So if you are wanting to find out more about how you can take advantage of our bursary funding which will make a significant difference to your enrolment fee, then we would highly recommend you speaking to our enrolment and support team who will give you more information.


Some people may need to spread their enrolment fee over a period of time. We offer tailored, interest-free payment plans to successful applicants.
