Fun and engaging.
The training was perfect.
The best training course I’ve ever been on! (Guidance practitioners, Berkshire)
For over 15 years, our Advice and Guidance qualifications have provided valuable opportunities for individuals to develop their skills, gain a foundation of knowledge and understanding and, most importantly, demonstrate competence in the workplace. They also offer the chance to progress on to higher-level programmes.
All you need to do is choose the qualification that suits you and we’ll make the application process easy!
BIIAB Level 3 Certificate in Advice and Guidance
We advise staff who are new to delivering advice and guidance and want an all-round knowledge of the advice and guidance process to choose the Level 3 qualification. The programme is for those practitioners who offer information, advice and guidance on a range of topics and issues. For more information, here’s the Awarding Body link: Level 3 Certificate in Advice and Guidance
BIIAB Level 4 Diploma in Advice and Guidance
The Level 4 qualification is geared at practitioners who are more experienced in the advice and guidance sector. If you’re offering in-depth information, advice and guidance on a range of topics, this is the qualification for you. If you oversee other staff and you’re involved in multi-agency working, the Level 4 is entirely appropriate.

OCR Level 4 Diploma in Career Information and Advice
Your support with my Careers Diploma is much appreciated. Your constant positivity and ability to put me at ease made this course much more achievable, especially as a working parent. Your knowledge, exceptional response times and flexibility were impressive! (Careers Coach)
This qualification is for those working specifically in the career development sector. It provides accredited professional development opportunities and encourages progression. It also allows for holistic assessment and use of virtual technology to support learning and development of new skills.
We recommend that practitioners who are new to the career development world consider the CIA 4 first and foremost. Several Units in the Level 4 programme are also offered in the Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development. If you and your Assessor choose your optional modules wisely and you do venture on to the higher-level qualification, it could mean you won’t start the Level 6 from scratch!
Here’s more information on the CIA 4 from the OCR website: Career Information and Advice Level 4 Diploma
To get a “feel” for some of the work you might undertake for the Level 4, have a look at some sample evidence, recommended by OCR. The link below takes you there: Level 4 Sample Evidence
OCR Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development
From registration to certification, I have nothing but praise for the team. The Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development was professionally delivered and tailored to my individual requirements. Adrian Pitt was my Assessor. This is a chap who thoroughly enjoys his work. He was diligent, enthusiastic and highly motivational throughout the programme. Nothing was too much trouble…do the Diploma with Ade! (Army Administration and Welfare Officer, Northern Ireland)
I’m not usually so generous on my evaluation forms! I’m quite a critical person. I couldn’t fault the delivery. Previous workshops I’ve attended with other companies have been quite painful. I usually watch myself disengage. However, with the Always Consult sessions, the time went really quickly and the content was fresh and engaging. (Independent Supporter Adviser)
If you’re looking to endorse your Careers Guidance skills to a high level – you’ve chosen wisely with the Level 6 Diploma!
The OCR Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development is the “industry standard” qualification for Careers Development professionals. It offers a great mix of theory and practical elements. The Level 6 is the first qualification of its type in a number of years that has stretched practitioners at this level, helped them consider what they’re great at, identified their areas for development and – what we call “careers theory lightbulb moments” – where staff exclaim: “Well, I do that every day, however, I didn’t know it was called that!”
