1This is the new (replacement) version of our counselling studies qualification, having the same title as the old version but with an increased credit value of 20 (previously 18). Unlike the old version, it is not categorised as ‘full’ (the replacement for “target bearing” as of August 1st 2012) because under the new SFA funding rules a vocational qualification at level 3 is only ‘full’ if it’s a diploma in the QCF and has a certain specified purpose.
