PRLog - July 5, 2012 - COVENTRY, U.K. -- Coventry University College will be running accredited courses from this September for anyone interested in training to become a counsellor.
A new H.E. college in Coventry
Accredited by The Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) the Level 2 certificate in counselling skills will be available to study as well as the Level 3 course, which can be taken upon completion of Level 2.
CPCAB sets the standard for therapeutic practice and provides information for therapists, clients of therapy and the general public.
Lorraine Gearing, course tutor for the counselling skills course, said:
“This certificated qualification is intended for candidates who genuinely want to help others, either in a voluntary or an employed capacity. The course is suitable for anyone wishing to know more about this area of work and it may help them to decide whether or not to go on to continue with more intensive training.
“We are delighted to have achieved CPCAB accreditation for these courses in counseling skills as it is one of the largest professional bodies to represent counseling and psychotherapy in the UK.”
Students who take the Level 2 and Level 3 courses will already have an understanding of the benefits of counseling and, in keeping with the way Coventry University College operates, the courses will be flexible enough so that students can study around their work or other commitments.
Lorraine Gearing concluded:
“Coventry University College offers a wide-range of vocational courses which are ideal for people wanting a change of career or merely just wishing to update existing skills.”
