Bursary Pathway

Bursary Pathway

We want our counselling training courses to be as accessible as possible.

Are you passionate about training to work therapeutically with children and young people but need some help to fund your training? Our bursary funding is here to support you. We offer bursaries for our:

  • Introduction to Child Counselling Skills (Level 2 Award)
  • Intermediate Child Counselling Skills (Level 3 Certificate)
  • Level 4 Diploma in School-Based Child Counselling
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Children in Schools.

It's important to us that those working as counsellors for children and young people reflect pupils in our schools, and our bursaries will prioritise funding and supporting those from under-represented groups in the counselling profession.
