Student Placements.


A Placement is a journey.


Students who embark on their Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, are required to fulfill a requirement of 100 formally-contracted client hours, with at least 5 different Clients, within the body of the 2-year course. By arrangement, a student may move into a 3rd year to complete outstanding work i.e. client hours that are outstanding.


Students may use 30 clinical hours toward their total requirement, counselling children in Schools. Other placements may include volunteering at CRASAC, The Intercom Trust, CRUSE, Waves, and MIND. These are Agencies who may provide in-house training and supervision to enable you to work professionally and ethically.


Students on our courses use the CPCAB's Placement Guide document. Students are assessed during their training, tutor observations, student feedback in tutorials, and attitude to their training and the profession. 


This is best practice and the advice of our awarding body.
