Guide to Counselling Qualifications on the Regulated Qualifications and Credit Framework
There are several awarding bodies in the UK offering an array of approved counselling qualifications on levels two, three and four. As you will see, these qualifications often differ widely in such key elements as guided learning hours, assessment method and structure.
Factors as diverse as trainees’ preferences and backgrounds, socio-economic environment, and even geographical location may all have a bearing on your choice, in particular as it relates to the awarding bodies’ external assessment requirements. You may find that you are working with a highly committed group of trainees who would relish the chance to shine in an audio taped assessment as prescribed by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).
