Counselling Skills (RQF) Level 3

About the Counselling Skills (RQF) Level 3 course

This NCFE Level 3 Diploma in Counselling Skills RQF qualification (600/0727/8) is an excellent way to gain in-depth knowledge and practical insight into some of the main, core theories that represent the cornerstones of counselling.

The 5 units and the assignments have been designed to help you get the most out of this course. As a result, you will learn how to apply practice to theory, by developing your own counselling skills, finding out what theories underlie them, the role ethics play in counselling and how it all comes together in driving personal development for yourself as well as others.

Who should study this course?

This NCFE approved online course is a great choice for those that want to forge a career in counselling but lack experience or previous qualifications in the field. It is a perfect starting point if you lack formal training. It can also be equally useful to complement your current experience with an accredited qualification in counselling, if you are already working in the field and want to take your career to the next level.

You do not need any qualifications to be able to start studying this course from the comfort of your own home, straight away.

Am I required to do a placement?

In order to complete this Level 3 Counselling Skills Diploma, you will need to demonstrate your skills with an evidence-based portfolio. As you interact with a few case study scenarios, you will submit audio / video evidence to demonstrate your skills. This will not only help you to memorise the concepts you learn about, but it will also boost your confidence in applying your counselling skills to real life situations in the future.

You will also need to take part in learning activities, present a reflective account of your experiences and keep a development journal. All these assessment activities are proof of how you have applied counselling skills in your daily activities. It can also be the basis of your professional portfolio when you seek employment.

What happens after the course?

Once you completed the Level 3 online qualification you will have a better understanding of what counselling skills are necessary to become a good therapist and how to put them to use.

You can continue your studies and prepare for a university degree with an Access to HE Diploma in Social Science, or you can look for relevant work in your area of interest. Some of the jobs where you can benefit from counselling skills are:

  • Mental Healthcare Assistant
  • Counselling Therapist
  • Staff Support Counsellor

The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.
