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.
Apply to offer our non-regulated qualifications
We offer non-regulated counselling qualifications, supporting candidates who have undertaken a level 4 diploma e.g our Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling or equivalent.
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.
Find out more on our Tailor Made qualifications service page. To help support your application please read our guide to centre recognition for Tailor Made qualifications.
Apply to have your CPD endorsed by us
With our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) endorsement service we offer our valuable quality assurance and recognition for your CPD programme. That’s over 27 years of expertise in counselling training from the UK’s leading counselling awarding organisation.
