Are you trained to this level?
Many professional bodies, employers, and the general public, are advocating that entry into the counselling profession should be set at degree level, or equivilant to degree level, which is level 6. In fact, in England, Scotland, NI, Wales and the Republic of Ireland, many employers will not accept counsellors who are not trained to this level.
In 2013, the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), stated that: ‘Counsellor and psychotherapist education may be accessed via universities, institutes of further and higher education, and independent providers.’ In addition, these recommendations outline that: ‘As those entering the counselling and/or psychotherapy fields require understanding of a complex body of knowledge, clinical skills, self-awareness, analytical techniques and problem-solving skills, and the ability to evaluate evidence, arguments and assumptions to reach sound independent judgements, it is likely that they will need to be qualified to at least the level of a bachelor's degree with honours (level 6 on The framework for higher education qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland…’ (p.1).
