Introduction, The ACA Scheme for the Accreditation of Counsellor Education Courses has attracted considerable. interest from Providers that deliver or want to deliver counsellor education and training courses. from prospective students who want assurance as to the quality of education and training as well. as from potential employers who desire to recruit counsellors educated to a professional standard. The criteria that follow are those accepted by the membership Course submissions are assessed. against the criteria and accreditation is granted for a three year period. Satisfactory completion of an ACA Accredited Course in counselling automatically meets the. minimum education requirements for eligibility to apply for Level 1 Membership to ACA. Completion of an accredited qualification is only one requirement of membership therefore the. completion of an ACA Accredited course of study is not an automatic guarantee of membership. Additionally completion of higher levels of qualifications such as Degrees or post graduate courses. qualifies the member for higher levels of membership after the satisfactory completion of post. training practice and supervision requirements have been met. Only courses that have completed the accreditation process and have received confirmation of. their accredited status may include the words ACA Accredited Course on their publicity material. Members need to have completed an ACA Accredited Course to be eligible for membership. If prospective members have completed a course that is not accredited by ACA then the. prospective member will need to approach a Provider of an ACA Accredited Course and apply to. have their current skills and knowledge assessed through the ACA Accredited RPL Process which. includes theoretical and practical assessment of all main competencies Where an education gap is. identified the applicant must successfully complete training and assessment by the ACA. Accredited Course Provider in the gap areas before an application for membership will be. considered, The criteria for accreditation provides ample scope for education and training programmes of. different orientations and traditions to flourish equally The course accreditation process is intended. to preserve and enhance independence of approach while ensuring a common focus on those core. elements in counsellor education which are considered to be fundamental no matter how varied. the rationales underpinning different courses, All ACA Accredited courses are required to only be offered by Providers whom are Registered.
Training Organisations RTO s or Higher Education Providers HEP s All Providers are required to. submit a written application addressing the criteria and requirements for accreditation of courses. contained within this document, It is imperative that all Providers who request for course s to be accredited by ACA understand that. ACA is an association for professional counsellors As such we do not accredit courses that are. intended for social workers welfare workers or other allied health professions These professions. have their own professional bodies that can be approached regarding course accreditation ACA. does not approve of the concept of bundling several courses to make up the criteria required by. this document Membership requirements to ACA require the completion of a single course that. meets the full minimum standards and requirements outlined in this document. Criteria for Accreditation, The Australian Counselling Association recognises that an accredited course should provide a. variety of learning opportunities and experiences These should be aimed at developing a range of. intellectual and personal capacities and attributes of the future counselling practitioner. The Association accepts that courses submitted for accreditation will reflect a corresponding variety. of approaches and theories The aim of course accreditation is to maintain the standards of. counselling courses it is not intended to impose uniformity The Association utilises criteria for. evaluating courses for accreditation that are flexible enough to promote healthy diversity and. innovation, The Association further recognises that not all Providers wish to put forward their education. programs specifically aimed at producing counselling practitioners. The minimum requirement for membership to the Association is completion of an ACA Accredited. Course that meets the criteria set out in this document If prospective members have completed a. course that is not accredited by ACA then the prospective member will need to approach a. Provider of an ACA Accredited Course and apply to have their current skills and knowledge. assessed through the ACA Accredited RPL Process which includes theoretical and practical. assessment of all main competencies Where an education gap is identified the applicant must. successfully complete training and assessment by the ACA Accredited Course Provider in the gap. areas before an application for membership will be considered Once they have successfully. completed the ACA Recognised RPL Process they are to submit their Bridging Certificate along. with their Application for Membership, Providers that deliver short courses may approach the Association for Recognition of that course for.
