NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Counselling Skills and Theory

This course is intended for candidates who need to develop their counselling skills further and to understand the theoretical roots of counselling for use in an occupational setting.  Counselling skills can be applied to a wide variety of situations and are highly relevant to a range of occupations and professions where interpersonal skills are important.  Candidates may be planning to return to work, looking for a change in career, looking for new skills or simply wanting to acquire and use counselling skills in a voluntary setting.  Counselling theory helps to support and to "ground" counselling skills practice by forming coherent models for understanding individual development and human interaction.  For many, this will be a further step towards becoming a counselling practitioner.

 

Course Content

The course is 50% theory, 50% practice and comprises of 4 units:


• Understanding different approaches to the use of counselling skills
• Practising counselling skills
• Working ethically in helping relationships 
• Understanding the importance of self-development in relation to helping others 

 

Assessment will be by submission of a portfolio of work that covers all the learning outcomes of the qualification.  Amongst other pieces, this will include:

 

  • A weekly reflective journal of 400 words
  • A group project 
  • Completed worksheets
  • Record of feedback from assessed skills role-plays

 

Entry Requirements

No formal requirements however, most candidates will have completed the Level 2 Award in Introduction to Counselling Skills evening course prior to enrolling onto this Level 3 course. We would happily consider candidates without prior training who have experience of work in a helping role or profession.

Applicants will be invited to a group meeting and a brief interview.
