Information About The Post

Our busy College Counselling Service is a key part of a range of support services available to our students aged 16 – 19. You will work alongside other counselling professionals in your work which will include providing one to one sessions, assessing cases, promoting the service and liaising with other agencies both within and outside the College. You will receive external supervision to support you in your work, which will be paid for by the college. We will also pay for membership of professional bodies such as the BACP.

We seek a Counsellor to work 17 hours a week, term time only, on Tuesday and Wednesdays. The successful candidate will have a post graduate diploma in counselling or equivalent and will either hold or be eligible for BACP Accreditation. Experience of working with this age group and in an educational setting are desirable. As important, however, are the personal qualities of communication, empathy and an ability to relate to students at this point in their lives.

No Agencies please

We are dedicated to safeguarding the students in our care. To that end, a Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced disclosure will be required in the event of an individual being offered a position within our College. Our staff undertake regular safeguarding training and are subject to ongoing safeguarding scrutiny.
