This course will develop your knowledge of counselling, help you acquire and practise active listening skills and develop self-awareness and self-growth. It will enable progression to higher levels of study, for example BA (Hons) Person Centred Counselling, or other courses at the same level.

Units may include:

  • Psychological Theories
  • Emotional Development
  • Foundational Counselling Skills
  • Human Growth and Development
  • Group Theories
  • Human Relationship and Communication Skills

Requirements

A sufficient standard of Numeracy and English Language is needed to cope with the demands of the course. We strongly advise you to have a GCSE in English language and maths at grade C or above as the majority of university providers will require this. All students will undertake diagnostic assessment to assess these skills during the course interview or induction process and you will be required to demonstrate that you can work at level 2 in these subject areas. Students may be able to study for one GCSE in either English Language or maths alongside the Access course. This will be discussed during the Access interview process.

Assessment

An interview with the counselling tutor who will assess you. You will also complete English and maths skills assessments.

Progression

A range of additional postgraduate courses are available as well as employment.
