Learners will also develop their practical skills and gain a deeper knowledge with ethical frameworks. Although learners will not be a qualified counsellor upon completing this course, the course will take learners up another step on the professional pathway towards a career in counselling.

Course Information

At Base 51 Training Academy we tend to start most learners on a level 2 course as this acts a foundation for which to progress onto higher courses. Remember: Our higher courses require a much bigger commitment and learner's work will need to be much more detailed. Learners who have already achieved a level 2 qualification are eligible to start on a higher course.
