OCR Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development

Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development: Our “flagship” Careers qualification with OCR, which can be delivered in a number of ways. Careers staff with an existing Level 4 qualification i.e. Level 4 Advice and Guidance (old standards), Level 4 LDSS, can undertake three Mandatory Units from the Level 6. Completion of these Units, prior to May 2014, offers conditional access to the new CPA Register.

Level 4 qualified Advice and Guidance staff (old standards) or Level 4 LDSS staff can undertake all 7 Mandatory OCR Units with us, plus a series of Optional Units and achieve the FULL Level 6 Diploma. We acknowledge prior achievement, experience and competence and, therefore, do not “start from scratch” with existing Level 4 qualified staff.

We can deliver the full Level 6 Diploma to staff who are new to the service, but have extensive advice and guidance experience in previous roles.

FIVE-STAR FEEDBACK! Our Level 6 learner, Simone Simmons, Widening Participation Officer at Solent University, Southampton, had this to say about the course and our specialist trainer Adrian Pitt:

Hi Adrian,

OK so I’ve actually been doing my happy dance for the past 5 minutes!!

In the period its taken for me to complete this qualification I’ve moved house, had my second child AND dealt with a number of changes at work.

This qualification at times seemed more challenging than any of these things but has been made easier because of you and your ability to make it all seem possible.

Thank YOU for all of your patience, encouragement and cracking sense of humour. It goes without saying I would have thrown in the towel months ago had you not been such a constant – sending encouraging emails and being available for each and everyone of my many emails of frustration.

I couldn’t have asked for a better assessor.

You’re an absolute legend!!
