What the course leads to

What courses can I do after this? 

Upon successful completion of the course, there is an opportunity for you to progress to the Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, however, as with previous levels progression is not automatic and will be dependant on recommendation from your tutor, (taking into consideration a number of points including attendance and CPCAB guidelines).
 

What do I need to apply

To do this course you should have... 

You must be at least 19 years of age and you will be asked to:-

Attend an interview and course briefing with the course tutors where you will be given more information about the course.

*CPCAB Guidelines mean the following will be taken into account:
Applicants must have a suitable level of literacy in English, for students who use English as a second language evidence of IELTS of 6 is needed.

The College take the health, safety and well being of students very seriously.  If you have recently experienced a significant life event (e.g. bereavement, divorce, arrest, court proceedings, etc.), are currently suffering or recovering from a serious medical condition, are being treated for mental health problems or if you are in recovery from addiction and are less than two years clean and dry you must discuss this with the tutors before applying for the course.  Failure to do so would be a breach of integrity and could prevent successful completion of the course.


You need to be aware that the course involves experiential elements which will involve some personal disclosure and associated personal development activities.

Where applicable, we would advise applicants against joining the same training group as their partner.
