Course details


The Certificate in Interpersonal Skills (Level 5) is the first year of study towards the Bachelor of Counselling. It can be completed full-time in a year, or part-time over two years. This counselling training prepares students for work in a range of fields such as parishes, churches, family and health support services, community agency work and advocacy roles.

Throughout this certificate, you will develop a strong understanding of counselling theory, including counselling process, self-awareness, human development, personal and professional boundaries, and principles of psychology.

Openness towards diversity in culture, spirituality and world view is highly valued, as is the importance of developing a mission or purpose in one's life. This certificate is delivered and practised face-to-face and/or in an online environment in preparation for counselling placements in Years 2 and 3.

Students can choose to complete this certificate alone, achieving the Certificate in Interpersonal Skills (Level 5), or they can continue on to complete the Bachelor of Counselling.
