The workshop will help you decide if counselling skills are something you might like to develop in a supportive and fun environment.

This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.
RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.
Where can it lead?
This introductory course may inspire you to look out for any Level 1 and Level 2 Counselling courses being delivered in the area, to help with progression into this kind of employment e.g. a specialist advisory role, Credit Controller, Counsellor etc.
We also offer a number of other courses that will help you develop your interest and skills further.
