We recommend that you complete the CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling before registering for this qualification. (You can transfer the 120 credits from the CPCAB diploma when you register for this OU foundation degree.)
To study the CPCAB Level 4 Diploma course you need to have completed both the CPCAB Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills or its equivalent, and the CPCAB Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies or its equivalent. The OU’s Introduction to counselling (D171) is equivalent to the CPCAB Level 3 Certificate if it is followed by a successful interview with your chosen CPCAB Level 4 training provider.
This qualification is limited to areas where the CPCAB courses are delivered, so you should check the CPCAB website for details.
