Counselling level 3 QCF, any one any ideas on placements for voluntary work in order to get a place on this course-i'm based in the North West and no luck so far!
I was thinking if anyone is based in the North West preferably Lancashire/Greater Manchester could anyone help contacting local colleges or appropriate busy/safe/well known environents or within an organisation where students could practise counselling? I am having trouble finding a placement for voluntary work and would need to find this in order to get a place on the course, any ideas on voluntary work helpfull (as my local area have stated i would need to complete the level 3 to actually get voluntary work with them which i agree with) I hace completed the introduction and level 1 counselling at my local college (with practical work) plus the counselling level 2 ABC award online and understand it is not a safe thing to do using family/friends to practise counselling skills on (well doesn't work for me anyway) also i wasn't even aware you could do this as i was told by a stonebridge advisor it would have to be an placement within an organisation ( is this true as my last resort would to go ahead and use family) but i would feel more comfortable with students on the same level. Don't know if this is possible to do - fingers crossed it can be looked into but stonebridge said its upto me to find a placement and i'm struggling to find anything near me at the moment, so any suggestions in the meantime would be great!
i've just done the level too aswell but the advisor said i needed to secure my own placement yet reading through comments on here people have just practised on their /friends. Really want to do voluntary work within counselling anyway but know how strict it is to get into ( in my area anyway) just having the worst luck finding something just hope i hear something back soon as i want to do the level 3 to get into uni, can't go onto any other course as there is no funding available near me either.
