West Suffolk College are offering the New Care Certificate on a bespoke basis to employers for their Care Staff.
We offer the delivery via three routes:
- Employers can choose the Full Package which consists of delivery of 5 days training to cover all 15 standards with 1 days observation in the workplace, portfolio assessment and certification.
- Alternatively they can choose to have 1 day training to cover 3 standards which can be varied due to the need of service. With this option learners will receive certification of sessions attended however assessment in the workplace is not included.
- The final option is delivery of 5 days training to cover all standards. Learners will receive certification of sessions attended but assessment in the workplace is again not included.
The aim of this course is to study the core conditions and practise the basic skills of person centred counselling and the philosophy and theory underpinning them. We shall consider some definitions of counselling and where counselling fits into a wide range of helping methods, such as advising, teaching, nursing etc. Students will be encouraged to relate the course to their own life and working experience so that the skills and knowledge they acquire are seen as directly relevant to them.
It is important to note that the class is not intended for personal problem-solving. Because of the nature of the learning, however, some quite deep-seated emotions can be stirred, so applicants presently undergoing any personal crisis should carefully consider their fitness to participate.
The aim of this course is to give those interested an introduction to analytical psychology's key concepts and to explore areas to which C.G. Jung applied his theories. Key concepts that will be encountered include the unconscious (particularly the collective unconscious), complexes, archetypes, the Self, and the psyche. Areas to which Jung applied some of his ideas other than in private therapy include society, the arts and selected historical events. This short-course will not focus exclusively on the clinical application of Jungian techniques in psychotherapy but inevitably some clinical insights will be encountered.
