Successful completion of this course will provide you with one of the entrance requirements for a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, which is the final stage in counselling training and qualifies successful candidates to practise as counsellors.

Please note that progression from the Level 3 programme onto the Level 4 programme is not automatic. You are advised to check with centres regarding selection procedures which may require further evidence of a learner’s suitability to progress to Level 4.

Upon successful completion of the course you will be awarded a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills from ABC Awards.

Please note that regular and punctual attendance is a course requirement and final qualifications may be withheld if attendance is below 80%.

The fees for the course are £1295. This includes the cost of the residential and external fees.

The fees will be due at enrolment. They can be paid either through an Advanced Learning Loan or by your personal funds. If your employer is paying your fees you will need to bring a signed letter on headed paper stating this when you enrol.

Once you have enrolled you are liable for the full fee, regardless of whether you leave the programme.

Please note that an Advanced Learner Loan will cover some of the course fee. The remaining amount will need to be paid by your own personal funds.
