University Centre Grimsby has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
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 will be highly attractive to practicing counsellors who may hold a practising Foundation Degree in counselling who are looking to develop their professional competence and advance their careers with a full degree. These students would not be expected to achieve any further hours on placement as they will have already achieved the 100 hours required by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Neither would they be required to participate in ten personal therapy hours. The programme would also enable those students not wishing to enter placement and become a counsellor to achieve a good degree. At present there are no provisions for students to attend a programme where they can choose to opt out of the placement module and attend theoretical modules in place of the practicing element.
Modules studied during this programme are personal development; psychology within counselling; dissertation; dual diagnosis – substance misuse; leading change in organisations (elective) and child and adolescent counselling (elective).
Assessment methods utilised within this programme are reflective and academic essay; case study; report; oral presentation; poster presentation and dissertation.
