Do you want to make a difference to the lives of children and adolescents?
Being young is a time when we are vulnerable. Children only have limited life experience. They are constantly learning about the world around them and they need confidence to grow. The fears and anxieties of children can quickly destroy their fragile confidence if they are not provided with adequate care, love and understanding.
Those who work with children are most effective when they have an understanding of the specific problems faced by them, and what can be expected in normal childhood development.
If you are passionate about working with children and young people then this course may be right for you. The course is a distance learning course which focuses on counselling this age group. In this course you will be able to learn about theories of childhood development (e.g. morality, cognition, psychosocial), as well as develop core counselling skills. The elective modules offer an opportunity to specialise in areas such as mental health problems which have their onset in childhood, adolescent development, and disorders of childhood. There is also the possibility of learning more general psychology which can be applied to people of all ages, or focussing on specific areas for counselling.
You can study this flexible course in your own home and at your own pace, and you will have support from our experienced and highly qualified tutors.
You are required to take two core modules – Child Psychology and Counselling Skills I. You can then choose a further four modules from the electives listed below.
Core Modules: These modules provide foundation knowledge for the Certificate in Child and Youth Counselling.
Elective Modules: In addition to the core modules, students study any 4 of the following 12 modules.
Note that each module in the Certificate in Child and Youth Counselling is a short course in its own right, and may be studied separately.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
