The NCFE CACHE Counselling Skills Diploma will provide you with in-depth knowledge of the use of counselling skills in everyday life and work, and the approaches that underpin the use of these skills.

The course may also complement other industries such as psychology, criminology, education, social work, health care, children’s care, learning and development, voluntary and community work.

This course is eligible for the Advanced Learner Loan.

“I really enjoyed studying Health and Social Care. You're treated as an adult at the College and the tutors get to know you on a personal level, they are really supportive and their knowledge is invaluable. I felt as though I grew as a person during my time there, which is so important."Caitlyn Crofts
