How will I be taught?
The course will involve full learner participation and self-reflection. There will be personal and sensitive discussions in small and large groups, group activities and role plays in triads (groups of three) followed by observer feedback. You will be asked to write a weekly reflective journal.
Assessment is by portfolio and tutor observation of practical skills during the course.
What do I need to bring with me?
An A4 ring binder with dividers, notepad and pen.
What can I do next?
If you are interested in progressing towards a professional counselling training programme, you can go on to study for CPCAB’s Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (CSK-L2). Alternatively, please see our directory or website at www.kentadulteducation.co.uk for information on further Adult Education courses.
What do I need to join the course
Everyone is welcome to join and there are no enrolment requirements for this course. This is a Level 2 course and so written work will require this level of competence. You should be able to follow spoken and written instructions, read handouts/exercises and take part in group discussions.
This course is for those who have little or no prior experience of counselling or official helping roles.
