Course Description

The Health Care Diploma has been created to give an opportunity for those working in a Care environment to build and improve their skills to progress in Health and Social Care.

Working in the care sector, you have responsibilities to provide a service to your clients and to respond safely and efficiently to their needs. This course will help you to develop the skills needed to do this and gain a qualification that recognises your achievement. This Health Care Diploma is concerned with your role, as a care worker, in identifying ways of communicating on difficult, complex and sensitive issues, in a variety of settings and situations.

You will examine and analyse methods of reflecting on and improving your practice. Updating your understanding and taking action to enhance your practice are vital to meeting the changing needs of individuals in your care, and the demands of a rapidly advancing health care system.

The Counselling course is a practical and extremely stimulating course, ideal for individuals with no prior counselling knowledge. This Counselling course will help you gain the necessary skills you need in order to work on a one to one basis with people in need of help, guidance and support.

This Counselling course is highly rewarding, exciting and challenging and is the perfect distance learning course to provide an excellent foundation of information and deeper knowledge of counselling, paving the way for further study and a future career within the varying fields. The Counselling course offers deep exploration and a step by step guide to work through the entire process of counselling from the initial meeting through to the end of the counselling relationship.
