Diploma in Person-centred Counselling & Therapy
Level 5 • Part-time • Social Care & Health department
This programme is ideal if you wish to become a professional counsellor, or if your job role contains a significant element of counselling. It has been accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and successful completion means you can practice independently as a qualified counsellor. For September 2020 intake, attendance is required 1 day a week, term time only for 2 years (Thursdays 9.30am to 4.30pm)
The programme contains an in-depth module on personal development, as well as counselling practice, professional development and counselling psychology modules.
You will start to work with clients as a counsellor, practise and develop your counselling skills, develop your understanding of the counselling process and expand your ability to be in a professional relationship with your client. You will do this within a person-centred framework and in the second year you will visit other counselling models.
You will be required to carry out 100 hours of counselling work with clients (i.e. in addition to counselling practice with peers) over the duration of the programme through placements with counselling agencies across Cornwall. We have strong links with placement providers and can support this process. You will need to keep accurate records of your client work, and if the placement does not provide supervision, you will need to engage a counselling supervisor to support your client work. Again we can offer you guidance with this.
It would be inconsistent with a person-centred model for you to have no experience of personal counselling as a client, so it is highly recommended that you undertake personal counselling while you are on the course.
Level 6 • Part-time • Social Care & Health department
This part-time top-up course is taught over two years and is only open to candidates who have successfully the HE Level 5 Diploma in Person Centred Counselling at Cornwall College and who wish to progress their studies to achieve an honours degree in counselling studies.
It also carries a professional qualification as a Counselling Supervisor on successful completion of the course.

This is a challenging course and it is expected that students will complete a minimum of 15 hours of independent study each week. Students may access college facilities on the days that they are not taught with some evening study available.
Please also be advised that most universities require work experience to complement your UCAS application-therefore it is highly recommended that you are working within the health care sector in either a voluntary or paid capacity.
Please Note: This course is only available to applicants who are 19+
Level 3 • Distance Learning • Social Care & Health department
From a general check-up to root canal work, as a dental nurse you will be required to have a reassuring and caring nature as it will be your job to look after the patients. You will also need great communication and organisational skills as you will be responsible for looking after the equipment and maintaining high levels of cleanliness. Successful completion of the course will enable you to become a qualified dental nurse and register with the General Dental Council.
New apprenticeship standards are being introduced to focus skills training more on specific career roles within industry. These government changes mean the apprenticeship skills development programme is written with employers ensuring you are much more work ready for a specific role by the time you complete your training.
An essential element of the programme is that you must achieve the Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing (City and Guilds), which consists of a portfolio of evidence and observations of you working in the dental practice by an assessor, plus four exams.
You can expect your employer to give you all the hands-on practical experience you need to become a fully qualified dental nurse. You will need great communication and organisational skills, plus a caring manner to succeed in this industry.
