This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. This programme is focussed on practice for aspiring counsellors. It prepares students for the challenges of working in this vital and frequently fluid area within both the public and private sector, equipping all students with the knowledge, skills, understanding and ethical instincts to work as informed, confident and responsible professionals. The programme will offer students sound knowledge and skills which they can apply to practice during the practical element, where students complete 100 placement hours as a 1-1 counsellor. A further requirement is that the student will participate in ten hours of personal therapy and 1.5 hours supervision per 8 client hours.
Modules studies during this programme are placement and supervision groups; personal development; psychology within counselling; child and adolescent counselling and dissertation.
Assessment methods will include 100 hours placement; reflective and academic essays; case study; report; oral presentation; poster presentation; audio recording and transcript; portfolio and dissertation.
