Course programme 2020-21

During the academic year 2020-21 we are continuing to offer level 2, 3 and 4 courses in Counselling, awarded by ABC Awards (www.abcawards.co.uk). The Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling continues to meet the requirements of BACP membership. We are also offering a fast track level 2 and 3, which runs for one year at a discounted price.

Course details are:

The Level 2 Award in Counselling Concepts

This introductory course is taught over a ten week period and covers basic aspects of counselling theory and the development of counselling skills. Whilst recognised as a counselling qualification in its own right, the award also assists students in deciding if they wish to pursue a higher level of counselling training.

Costs: £340 including registration.

Dates: September 2020 – November 2020, Monday evenings 5.30 – 9.00 : Finham Park School, Coventry, Friday mornings 9.30 – 1.00 pm (if enough interest at an alternative venue)

The Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills

This is a nine month, part time course, which builds on the areas covered in the Level 2 qualification (or equivalent other qualification) and further develops the counselling skills and theoretical knowledge needed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in this area. The Level 3 Certificate is also highly recognised in careers / areas of work where individuals are using advanced counselling skills to assist, mentor, or support various clients groups or service users. It is also required for entry on to most courses leading to counsellor status. (we are currently teaching this qualification over a nine month period to coincide with our fast track level 2 and level 3 programme)

Costs: £1250 including registration.

Dates: November 2020 to July 2021

Monday evenings: 5.30 – 9.00 Finham Park School, Coventry,  Friday mornings 9.30 – 1.00 pm (if enough interest at an alternative venue)

The Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

This is a two year, part time course, also including two weekend workshops a year. Students require a Level 3 certificate, or equivalent, to be accepted onto this course; although achievement of a level 3 qualification does not in itself guarantee acceptance. This course entails 7 units of study, including a placement in a separate organisation and the undertaking of 100 counselling hours, with clinical supervision to BACP guidelines. The successful completion of a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling can be seen as a “license to practice” and allows individuals to work as Counsellors and apply for accreditation with their chosen professional body.

Costs: £1950.00 including registration for year one, £1800.00 for year two.

Dates: September 2020 to July 2021 (second year September 2021 to July 2022)
