Barnsley College to introduce new Counselling Skills course

We will be launching a brand new Counselling Skills course in January 2017.

Accredited by NCFE, the Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills will allow learners to increase their understanding of counselling theory and develop their skills, enabling them to provide support to others.

The course will run for 15 weeks and will support students to progress to a number of employment opportunities including a Healthcare Assistant, Mental Health Outreach Worker or Substance Misuse Worker.

Lee Pryor, Head of Health and Social Care Professions at Barnsley College said: “We are delighted to be offering this new course. Due to the transferable nature of counselling skills, this will be a fantastic opportunity for students to further their study or widen their employment opportunities.”
