With the modern day pressures on kids to perform well in all aspects of life, children are needing a lot of counselling to cope. If there are family disturbances, bullying, health issues added to that it is a challenge for children to successfully cope with everything. A counsellor will help them understand the situation, see the bigger picture and give them an outlet to vent our their fears, anger, frustration and insecurities. This will help them develop into more well rounded adults.

Childhood is a time of development – physically, psychologically and emotionally. Having a good understanding of the intellectual development of the child helps the counsellor understand them better.

The difference between a good course and a bad course lies in the way you are assessed. Our assessments are designed is such a way that the student feels confident to move forward in the course as they complete each assessment. The feedback from the tutor not only reaffirms the student’s learning process but also gives an opportunity to the student to interact with the tutor regularly. Students are never penalised when their assignment work needs to be improved, rather they are given constructive feedback and requested to resubmit the section where they need improvement. Students do their assignment work at their own pace within the course duration and are not restricted by any deadlines which is the beauty of self-paced learning. The assessments will make the certificate achieved more credible and valuable to the student.

This course has approximately 8-10 assignments and 1 exam to complete the course successfully. You can opt out of the exam and receive a Certificate of Participation.
