CPE is an action –reflection – integration model of learning overseen by a trained supervisor involving 400 hours of supervised ministry, education, interpersonal group work and individual supervision. Although it most often takes place in a healthcare setting it can also be adapted to all ministry settings.

One unit of CPE training  is provided at Cork University Hospital and an extended Unit over twenty weeks is also run at the St Luke’s Home Education Centre, Cork. For further information about CPE please visit the ACPE website.
