The qualification would be useful for anyone who would like to develop their use of counselling skills for use in either work or in a personal capacity. These may be learners who wish to progress towards further qualifications, or learners who wish to study this programme in order to complement other programmes (e.g., health and social care; children’s care, learning and development; voluntary and community work).

This qualification aims to:

• introduce learners to the use of counselling skills in everyday life and work and some of the approaches that underpin the use of these skills.

The objectives of this qualification are to help learners to:

• develop counselling skills

• understand the different approaches involved in the use of counselling skills

• appreciate the importance of self-development.

The NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills consists of four mandatory units which are assessed by a portfolio of evidence;

• Using counselling skills

• Introduction to counselling skills theories

• Diversity and ethics in the use of counselling skills

• Counselling skills and personal development.

Please note that interested learners will be asked to attend an Information & Enrolment Session prior to the course commencing, to complete an Initial Assessment and speak to our Counselling Tutor to assess suitability.

Please note that we occasionally may need to amend the dates or cancel our training courses due to a low number of bookings or unexpected staffing absences.

We can also offer an appointment with our National Careers Service team to review opportunities with other training providers.
