The Level 6 Counselling Programme is accredited by BACP; After acquiring the Level 6 BA Hons award, you will be eligible to apply for individual accreditation by BACP once you’ve completed the required number of client, supervision hours and pass all the assessments. Our graduates go on to work as counsellors in various settings including: GP practices, voluntary agencies, higher and further education staff and student counselling services, churches. They also work in private practice.
Academically, the Theology programme is currently subject to validation by Middlesex University. On successful completion of the programme, you will receive a Middlesex University award.
We can apply to Middlesex University for APL for you if you have already covered aspects of the Theology and Counselling programme. For instance, if you have already completed counselling training to Diploma level at another organisation, we may be able to apply for APL for you for most of the Counselling training at levels one and two.
The University usually imposes a time limit of five years on this – i.e. you will probably not be able to apply for APL on the basis of courses or training taken more than five years before you begin the course with us. We need to show the equivalence between what you have already done and what our course requires.
Every case is different, and we can talk about your individual circumstances when you come for interview. We cannot formally apply for APL for you until you have been accepted onto the course.
