Customising qualifications

Centres may customise CPCAB qualifications by adding a descriptor. With a descriptor added, a qualification becomes specialised in a therapeutic approach, target client group or context within which the counselling or use of counselling skills takes place.

The descriptor takes the form of a word or phrase - for example Working with Young People – which appears on awarded certificates in addition to the formal qualification title.

Centres must apply to use a descriptor. There is an additional charge for this service. To add a descriptor to your qualification, please use this application form. If you'd like more information about qualification descriptors call us on 01458 850 350.
