This ensures that all aspects of the seven processes of practitioner development are evidenced. These assessment methods will assess training programme assignments and look at the evidence from the agency setting, and will provide the quantity and type of evidence required to satisfy criteria.
Assessments are designed to assess your understanding of the professional framework. External assessment is based on a role play between counsellor and client and a written assessment based on an evaluation of the practical work and counselling process.
“Having taken time out to have children, I was initially daunted by the prospect of going back into education. The psychology and counselling course couldn’t have been more perfect. The lecturers were excellent and I absolutely loved learning about human behaviour and how the mind works. I’m now studying a BSc in Counselling at St Mary’s University.”
