Course Overview

This programme is aimed to provide an introduction to this area, with learners wishing to ultimately work or volunteer in an advice role in a range of areas from careers guidance or pastoral support in schools or colleges, to supporting clients in areas such as drug or alcohol rehabilitation services; with family or confidence issues and clients who require domestic abuse support. The course will culminate in an observed IAG meeting to demonstrate skills learned on the course and ability to conduct a meeting in a supportive manner. The learners can then progress to the Level 2 IAG if they wish.
