This programme will be highly attractive to practicing counsellors who may hold a Foundation Degree in counselling and are looking to further 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. This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during 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 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 taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support.
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).
Throughout the teaching on this programme emphasis will be made upon theoretical underpinnings of counselling. Assessments such as case studies, reports and a dissertation will demonstrate the ability to critically analyse contemporary counselling research. The dual diagnosis assessment will develop a critical evaluation of the diverse and complex nature of this topic. Alongside the theoretical underpinning, the personal development assessment will further enhance a critical awareness of self in relation to culture and diversity.
