Course summary

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.**This programme is ideal for anyone working within the Healthcare sector who would like to gain further insight into Therapeutic Intervention. The course focuses heavily on Personal Development which enables greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, preparing individuals for client work. Alternatively, this programme would also suit someone who would like to gain experience in this sector to help develop career opportunitiesThis undergraduate Foundation Degree will provide a challenging and high quality academic grounding for future counselling practitioners. It seeks to do this by encouraging students to develop the integration of academic skills, counselling skills and competencies, and knowledge required by those working in areas of the counselling profession. Students will develop an understanding of therapeutic models of counselling practice, the influence of other subject disciplines, such as psychology and mental health, an awareness of key client issues such as addictions, abuse and eating disorders and an understanding of how culture and diversity impact on the counselling role and relationship. It will further empower students through a process of personal development to become autonomous practitioners aligned with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework, taking into consideration issues such as confidentiality, record keeping, insurance and contracting. The definitive feature of this programme is underpinned by the integration of knowledge and understanding with experiential learning, in order to encourage student competency within counselling practice. The programme seeks to provide a firm foundation for knowledge, skill and self-development and an interchange between classroom learning and placement experience. Thus, specially designed counselling rooms are provided to recreate a counselling environment. Furthermore, this programme will employ the use of counselling tutors/facilitators who hold registered membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals, have the necessary skills, qualifications, and experience, and engage in one to one supervision to maintain their own counselling casework. A particular emphasis which underpins the programme and is critical to the field of counselling is the acknowledgement of boundaries, confidentiality, professional practice, and self-care. Therefore, in order to help trainee counsellors separate their own issues from the client it is mandatory that through the duration of this programme, students maintain responsibility for engagement in and payment of personal therapy to a minimum of 20 hours over the two years, as an independent, self-managed process.Work related learning in the programme consists of live situations embedded into learning and teaching. Within the work-related learning module, students will be expected to complete 50 hours within a work-related placement, which must be completed within stages throughout the programme and present a signed log of hours at
