COUNSELLING

IT’S GOOD

AS A PUPIL, YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD OF COUNSELLORS – THOSE IN AND OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL. BUT HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT COUNSELLING AS A CAREER?

TO TALK BY ELLEN ADAMSON

“To be a good counsellor you need to be very patient.”

Are you an aspiring teacher?

Counsellors work in lots of places and support people who are dealing with different issues. School counsellors help young people in education by building a strong, trusting relationship and encouraging them to explore their feelings, reflect on what they are going through and think about ways to manage pressures. If necessary, they will also refer their clients to other sources of help.

Join the new and exciting programme to kick-start your career in teaching maths and physics.

So, what does it take to be a counsellor? The most important skills for a career in counselling are the ability to listen to what others are saying and to support them without judging. To be a good counsellor you need to be very calm, patient, tolerant and sensitive to the feelings of others. You also need to be discreet because people are sharing very personal information with you.

£15k grant with support and training during your university years

You could choose to study for a degree in something like psychology before going into a career as a counsellor. This isn’t necessary though, although it could open up other career options within a similar field.

Exclusive national conferences and events

Most employers will ask that you are trained in counselling though and that you are a member of a professional body, which shows that you are qualified to do the job.

Paid teacher training the Autumn after you finish university

An example of the kind of training pathway that you could follow would be:

One-to-one support finding your first teaching job

Complete an introductory counselling course. These typically last about 10 weeks.

Progress to studying for a certificate in counselling, which will give you a good theoretical understanding of counselling.

I think it’s a great programme. If you want to become a teacher in the long run it’s totally worth it. You have a job at the end of university, much more hands-on experience than other aspiring teachers of your age and the £5k for this year is coming in quite useful.

2016 FUTURE TEACHING SCHOLAR

Complete a diploma in counselling. This will normally take you a year if you study full time or two years if you study part time. When you do this you will normally do approximately 100 hours in a supervised placement. This enables you to become a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

It’s important to remember that it’s not just the qualifications that count, proving that you have the skills and

The university route means completing your Level 3 study at school or college and progressing to full time university study. Once you have completed your degree you then need to complete a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education). There are different types of PGCE, including early years, primary without specialism, primary with specialism, secondary, adult education with QTLS and international. The school-led route, involves training within a school or group of schools and being employed once you have qualified (have achieved QTS). The university-led route and the school-led route both include doing 24 weeks in the classroom, gaining teaching experience in at least two schools. They both also include being taught how to manage a classroom and the academic aspects of teaching and learning.

It’s no good just listing these skills and hoping that this is enough to get you the job though. Your future employer will want to see some evidence of these skills. So, how do you show them that you have these if you’ve never been employed?

TOP TIP FOR MODERN CV SUCCESS Recruitment agencies and large companies tend to use scanning software to filter CVs. The software will scan your CV for certain words (keywords) and reject any that don’t fit the bill. This means that it’s important to make your CV fit the job that you are applying for – one CV will not work for all! You need to go through the job description and the skills that the advertisement lists and you need to make sure that your CV uses the same language (keywords) as the advert.
