Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

Our 2-year Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling will benefit learners who want to train to become a counsellor working in a counselling agency.

  • Competence-based training which highlights the development of skilled practice via experiential learning
  • Specific training for the role of counsellor in an agency
  • Training to meet the BACP Registered Member status

Previous work

Entry Requirements

To apply, you must have at least 170 hours of classroom-based counselling skills training which can be achieved via CPCAB Certificate in Counselling Skills Level 2 and CPCAB Certificate in Counselling Studies Level 3. External candidates are welcome and any previous formal counselling skills training is considered. All candidates are interviewed for this Diploma Level.

If you are offered a place on this course we will need 2 references one of which must be your previous counselling training tutor.

The Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling is a significant investment of time, commitment and money. Your personal development, and being part of a continuous group, is an important part of your training and therefore 100% attendance and punctuality is required (but must not drop below 80%). Please note that this also means that once you have accepted a place on the course you are liable for the whole cost of the course (£4670).

You will need to have completed all Year One tasks (including starting to see clients) to enrol onto Year Two.
