New accreditation programme for counsellor's Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

With so much variety in global undergraduate admissions processes and requirements, our events give counsellors the chance to not only meet industry colleagues face to face, but also enhance their own knowledge and career development.

During our workshop, counsellors will also attend educational seminars which form part of Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP). Consisting of 12 modules and covering a solid range of content to help improve counsellors’ daily tasks when advising students, THE CAP is a ground-breaking professional development programme to support the international school sector.

All attending counsellors will receive some in-person training from THE CAP during the event, and then finish the remaining sessions online. Once completed, they will be among an elite cohort of school counsellors who hold a globally recognised accreditation, bolstering their career profile and thereby enhancing the reputation of their school.

Limited availability!

Due to the unique nature of this event, only 30 international higher education institutions are able to attend. Demand for this event is strong and planning is underway, so be sure to reserve your space now before it is too late!
