Painted HandsPost Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Young People (8-18 years)


We have re-designed and re-launched our popular Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling young People course.  The new course is mapped onto, and underpinned by BACP’s Competences for humanistic counselling with children and young people (4–18 years) 

The diploma focuses on work with children and young people and centres on the 8 -18-year age group. It is designed for those counselling practitioners who are post-qualified but who need further specialist training to enable them to work competently with children and/or young people.  The Diploma incorporates a mixture of summative and formative assessments, which have been adapted to meet our qualification, and as such students will be expected to successfully meet the assessment criteria aligned to the learning objectives of the three modules.
