Why study Chaplaincy?

The 10635NAT Diploma of Chaplaincy has been developed by The Salvation Army to meet the training needs of chaplains. This qualification will equip chaplains to provide services and/or interventions to clients in a variety of settings.

In the chaplaincy role you often work with people who are experiencing times of crisis, grief and loss or have experienced a crucial life changing incident. Engaging with such vulnerable people requires sensitivity and the discerning application of extensive knowledge and skills.
