Regulated qualifications

Apply to offer our regulated qualifications

We offer regulated counselling qualifications, from an introductory Level 2, to a practitioner Level 4 and beyond to supervision Level 6. These qualifications form our progression route, supporting candidates to become qualified counsellors.



You can find out more about our range of regulated qualifications on our qualifications page. To help support your application please read our guide to centre recognition.

Tailor Made qualifications

Apply to offer Tailor Made qualifications

Our Tailor Made qualifications service provides you with support to design new qualifications, or review existing ones, and have them accredited by us. This allows you to design and deliver a training programme that meets the specific needs of your organisation and candidates. Unlike our regulated qualifications, Tailor Made qualifications don't require external assessment.
