Penny Price is an experienced faculty member who is available to answer questions and provide advice to osteopaths interested in beginning the Pathway with the Foundation Course. Penny can be contacted via email.

We are working with the GOsC to ensure that our mentoring system dovetails with future and developing GOsC requirements. After successful completion of Module 2, students are assigned a mentor to offer practical advice on clinical problems, developing osteopathic thinking and hands on experiences. For more information on this please contact Penny.

Regional tutorial groups

As a student of the SCCO, you can access local tutorial groups, meet other osteopaths and get guidance from experienced tutors who are passionate about this work.

Tutorial groups are tailored to that group’s personal needs. This may include practical advice on clinical problems, developing osteopathic thinking and hands on experiences. Tutorial groups have access to all SCCO resources and will help us develop the voice of osteopathy in the cranial field through our members.

Clinical observations

A personal approach for clinical observations is offered in the form of mentoring with clinical visits or 1:1 discussions with an SCCO faculty member at their own practice.

A limited number of scholarships are awarded annually for those wishing to attend Module 2: Osteopathy in the Cranial Field which are available on application and subject to approval from the scholarship panel. These awards can cover up to 50% of the non-residential course fee.

We offer the following:

  • United Kingdom – Module 2 – THREE scholarships per academic year
  • Germany – Module 2/2+ – TWO scholarships per academic year
  • Spain – Module 2 – ONE scholarship per academic year

Should you wish to apply for a scholarship please contact Serena for UK applicants, Marianne for German applicants and Corina for Spanish applicants. Your application must be submitted by the end of May prior to the start of the academic year for which you are applying (e.g. May 2017 for the 2017/18 academic year) and scholarships must be taken up within 12 months of the award.

We are looking for students with enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to developing their skills in the cranial approach to Osteopathy. It is not necessary to have previous experience, but applicants will need to demonstrate that they have some knowledge and understanding of the approach in order to explain why they are keen to pursue studies in this area.

The scholarships will be awarded by the Board of Trustees of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, whose decision is final.Donate Here

The SCCO offers training to osteopaths experienced in OCF to help them develop their teaching skills. Applicants are usually selected from the Fellows of the SCCO or equivalent in experience. We offer an osteopathic education course of 6 day units, with assignments to run alongside teaching experience on our Module 2 Introduction to OCF courses. Facilitating students learning in a hands on palpatory environment requires special skills which we help future tutors develop along with their lecturing and workshop skills.

The scheme is now closed for applications. For further information contact Barbara Moulang bjmoulang@gmail.com

Faculty development

Faculty development weekends are run annually which enable our faculty who live across the UK Ireland, America and Germany to get together and share ideas about how we teach new courses or, share information and research.

Our forthcoming faculty courses will develop skills further for teaching BLT, developing the role of the course director and studies with Rachael Brooks our American Colleague. If you have any suggestions or requests for faculty training, please contact Sibyl Grundburg. sg@thenewriver.plus.com

The FPSG is a body of volunteers offering ongoing care, support and mentoring in complete confidence to any member of the faculty who is experiencing difficulties or concerns with any aspect of their teaching.

This facility, which is also open to Fellows, is a totally free service run for the benefit of Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy.

The group is led by Rowan Douglas-Mort who is mindful that however new or experienced our tutors are, most need support at some time, be it an ear to hear them, or a shoulder to lean on. She is supported by a body of volunteers with a wide range of personalities and teaching styles.

To access the Faculty Peer Support Group please contact Rowan.
