I am the course tutor on the Foundation Degree. If you are working with substance users or would like to move into the field then the Foundation Degree might be the course for you. It is part time and designed to fit alongside work. It runs as a one evening a week class or as a Distance Learning Course, if you live further afield or need the flexible study option.
“The course will provide the skills, knowledge base and expertise needed to use counselling skills within the drug and alcohol counselling field. The Degree provides an opportunity for people to train as drug and alcohol counselling workers and build a career in this profession… and will enable students to develop sufficient competence and confidence to access employment in the drug and alcohol counselling field.”
Intake for 2012 will start in January.
