CPCAB Level 2 + 3 Combined

Our fast-track course

If you’re looking to become a fully qualified counsellor in the quickest way possible, then our fast-track course is perfect for you!

This intensive online course is designed to prepare you to start level 4 (the last step to becoming a counsellor) in just 6 months!

But how exactly does our fast-track course work?

Well, this online course will take place with a combination of evening and full-day sessions over a 26-week period, with just a small gap between your level 2 course finishing and level 3 course starting.

On this route, we’ll guarantee a place on our level 3 course, provided you pass your level 2 and the tutor feels you are able to continue. So there is no need to worry about reapplying!

The course content is exactly the same as our normal courses and is ideal for students who have missed our September and October 2023 course enrolments but still want to start a level 4 course in 2024.

Our experienced tutors are committed to supporting you throughout the learning process, providing guidance and assistance at every step, and you’ll get access to our accompanying online video course and course workbooks, meaning you can always revisit key concepts or catch up if you ever miss a session.

You’ll also have access to additional online practice groups, allowing you to further develop your skills outside the standard course hours.

You can learn more about our level 2 and level 3 courses on our dedicated course pages. However, if faster progress interests you, just keep scrolling!

“I have been with Astranti for over 2 years now, where I have completed level 2 & 3. My experience has been so amazing, I’m starting level 4 in September. My tutor on 2 & 3 knowledge was second to none and created a safe and fun environment to learn. If you are thinking about taking a counselling path of learning or if you are interested in finding out more about yourself, then use this company, my whole journey has been a life changer.”

How you’ll earn your qualification

Astranti Connect Level 2 and 3 Courses

The great thing about undertaking a CPCAB course is that it’s recognised nationally and focused on helping you become the best counsellor you can be!

CPCAB courses are formally recognised by BACP (the UK’s leading counselling membership body), so the 90 formal learning hours you pick up on each course (180 in total) will count towards the 450 minimum hours of training required for membership. Membership of an organisation like BACP (or equivalent body) is vital if you wish to become a respected counsellor and work for organisations such as the NHS.

To pass the course, you must prove competence in various key counselling skills and theories. This is primarily assessed practically as you progress through the course – the tutor will gain evidence through observing you demonstrating the skills as you undertake exercises and practical sessions. In addition, during the course, you will complete regular exploration of your learning, undertake a self-review of your own learning, give feedback and write short essays. These are also used to gain evidence of your competence.

At the end of each course, you will undertake an assessment involving an open-book assignment. This will then be reviewed and assessed by CPCAB.

Once you have demonstrated your competence and passed your assessments, you will obtain your qualifications.

Our team of experienced tutors knows what it takes to make it as a counsellor. After all, they’re all qualified counsellors themselves and continue to be trained regularly in our tutor development programme! Head to our tutor page to meet the tutors for your course.

What our students say

Please see our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“I’m currently on the Counselling Skills Level 2 course and so far the course has been really interesting. The tutors are welcoming, kind and knowledgeable and we have already learned a lot about active listening skills. They give detailed constructive feedback every week, both written and verbal, on how we are doing. Really looking forward to the rest of the course!

Catherine Razzell

CPCAB Level 2 Student, April 2023

“We have had an incredible, inspirational and thoroughly knowledgeable tutor with whom we have all come to greatly respect (and adore), and as a group, we constantly remark about how far we have all come both in personal development and knowledge. I could not recommend highly enough the experience I have had here and am incredibly appreciative of the professionalism, high quality of teaching and support and also the delivery of our course.
