We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for our brand new PDA Counselling Children and Young People(10-18) SCQF Level 11
You can now apply for a place on our postgraduate level course that will equip counsellors with the skills, experience and qualifications to work effectively with children in school and community settings. We have spent the last few months since our SQA centre registration going through the course in fine detail and setting up the delivery so that it is more experiential learning and less classroom based listening. We are extremely proud of what we have managed to achieve and cannot wait to get started in upskilling the qualified counsellors who are looking to support children and young people.
