Have you ever thought about a career in Health and Social Care? Worried that you’ll have to sacrifice existing commitments or believe you lead a busy lifestyle with no time for studying? If this applies to you, don’t worry - The Training Room can help you get started on your new career path!

Our Online Health and Social Courses give you the freedom to study when are where you want; you won’t feel pressured by deadlines and you’ll be able to complete everything at your own pace. So whether you’re looking to begin your Health and Social Care career or top up your existing skills, The Training Room is the perfect place to do it.


Online Counselling Course

The Training Room’s Counselling Course is designed to enhance those who are already equipped with Health and Social Care skills to specialise in an important, rewarding area of the industry. Titled Comprehensive Counselling Skills, this programme focuses on a number of key areas within the counselling profession as well as your own self-development.

When you graduate, you will earn the ABC Awards Level 3 Certificate in Counselling and CBT; an internationally recognised qualification that has been approved by the ABC Awards' Quality Licence Scheme.

One of the best things about this course is the flexibility. Firstly, as the course is online you are able to study at your own pace, in your own time. The recommended time for completion is between 240-340 hours, but as you are control of your learning this may change depending on your lifestyle.

This Comprehensive Counselling Skills Course contains two compulsory certificates:

  • Counselling Certificate

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Certificate

However, this course also gives you the option to really specialise in an area of counselling you’d like to focus on. You will be required to choose one certificate from the following options:

  • Drug, Solvent, Alcohol Abuse Counselling Level 4

  • Grief Counselling Level 3

  • Stress Counselling Level 3

  • Counselling Children and Adolescents Level 4

  • Advanced Counsellor and Psychotherapist Level 4

This means that you are able to really understand a specific area of counselling, make your CV stand out to employers and learn about different sectors of the industry. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to start their career in a certain type of counselling.

Online Health and Social Care Course

The other course we provide in this sector is our Online Health and Social Care Course. Again this is a flexible course studied online that is designed for you to complete to your own personal timetable, making sure you get the best out of your learning. You’ll possess the NCFE Health and Social Care Diploma (QCF) Level 3 once you graduate, which is recognised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) alongside other nursing and care providers.

The average course completion time is around 336 hours, but the beauty of online learning means that you are flexible with your studies - you’ll even have access to unlimited exam resists if required!

Our Online Health and Social Care Course contains 16 modules that you’ll be required to complete. Some of these include:

  • The role of the health and social care worker

  • Promote good practise in handling information in health and social care settings

  • Support individuals with specific communication needs

Once completing a module you’ll have to undertake a question paper that should take around 1-2 hours. To read more on this particular course have a look at the course page here.
