The School of Health – courses in alternative and complementary therapies and homeopathy

The School of Health was founded as ‘Alternative Training’ in 1987.

We have changed our name… to The School of Health

We have been growing into our new name for some time now,
and we feel that the time has come to take the leap and Be the Change.

So, on 16th May 2017 we changed our name from Alternative Training to The School of Health. The School of Health is a much more descriptive name that better expresses who we are and what we do – and it also sits perfectly alongside The School of Homeopathy. SOH and SOH, if you like!

The former name Alternative Training has existed for 30 years since the company’s birth in 1987, however natural medicine is far more mainstream in today’s world and needs no longer be seen as just an alternative. It is integrated and complementary. Our dream is for people to think of natural medicine as an everyday choice.

We are always investing in our courses, online learning, movie lectures, chatrooms and personal events and, just as the course experience has grown, there is a sense that we are more than just a training centre – we feel ‘School’ is a better fit.

So what has changed?

The website name – but the old URL will still work.
Our email addresses – but the old ones will still work.
Our postal address and phone numbers stayed the same.
We are updating the name on all course material and stationery, but you may sometimes see the old name. It will take us a while to get around to everything!
Contacting tutors remains the same.

We hope you like the change as much as we do!
