What are BTEC Professionalqualifications?BTEC Professional qualifications are qualifications at Level 4 to Level 8 that aredesigned to provide professional work-related qualifications in a range of sectors.They give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need toprepare for employment. The qualifications also provide career developmentopportunities for those already in work. Consequently, they provide a course ofstudy for full-time or part-time learners in schools, colleges and training centres.On successful completion of a BTEC Professional qualification, learners can progressto or within employment and/or continue their study in the same or relatedvocational area.Sizes of Professional qualificationsFor all regulated qualifications, Pearson specify a total number of hours that it isestimated learners will require to complete and show achievement for thequalification – this is the Total Qualification Time (TQT). The TQT value indicatesthe size of a qualification.Within the TQT, Pearson identifies the number of Guided Learning Hours (GLH) thatwe estimate a centre delivering the qualification might provide. Guided learningmeans activities, such as lessons, tutorials, online instruction, supervised study andgiving feedback on performance, that directly involve tutors and assessors inteaching, supervising and invigilating learners. Guided learning includes the timerequired for learners to complete external assessment under examination orsupervised conditions.In addition to guided learning, other required learning directed by tutors orassessors will include private study, preparation for assessment and undertakingassessment when not under supervision, such as preparatory reading, revision andindependent research.As well as TQT and GLH, qualifications can also have a credit value – equal to onetenth of TQT, rounded to the nearest whole number.TQT and credit values are assigned after consultation with users of thequalifications.BTEC Professional qualifications are generally available in the following sizes: Award – a qualification with a TQT value of 120 or less (equivalent to a rangeof1–12 credits)Certificate – a qualification with a TQT value in the range of 121–369(equivalent to a range of 13–36 credits)Diploma – a qualification with a TQT value of 370 or more(equivalent to 37 credits and above).Other size references, such as Extended Diploma, may be used in a suite ofqualifications depending on the specific needs of different sectors.Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 20171

AssessmentAll units within this qualification are internally assessed. The qualifications arecriterion referenced, based on the achievement of all the specified learningoutcomes.To achieve a ‘pass’ a learner must have successfully passed all the assessmentcriteria.GuidanceThe purpose of assessment is to ensure that effective learning has taken placeto give learners the opportunity to: meet the standard determined by the assessment criteria and achieve the learning outcomes.All the assignments created by centres should be reliable and fit for purpose,and should be built on the unit assessment criteria. Assessment tasks andactivities should enable learners to produce valid, sufficient and reliableevidence that relates directly to the specified criteria. Centres should enablelearners to produce evidence in a variety of different forms, includingperformance observation, presentations and posters, along with projects, ortime-constrained assessments.Centres are encouraged to emphasise the practical application of theassessment criteria, providing a realistic scenario for learners to adopt, andmaking maximum use of practical activities. The creation of assignments thatare fit for purpose is vital to achievement and their importance cannot be overemphasised.The assessment criteria must be clearly indicated in the assignments briefs.This gives learners focus and helps with internal verification and standardisationprocesses. It will also help to ensure that learner feedback is specific to theassessment criteria.When designing assignments briefs, centres are encouraged to identify commontopics and themes. A central feature of vocational assessment is that it allowsfor assessment to be: current, i.e. to reflect the most recent developments and issues local, i.e. to reflect the employment context of the delivering centre flexible to reflect learner needs, i.e. at a time and in a way that matches thelearner’s requirements so that they can demonstrate achievement.6Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 2017

Qualification gradeLearners who achieve the minimum eligible credit value specified by the rule ofcombination will achieve the qualification at pass grade.In the Pearson BTEC Level 5 Professional qualifications each unit has a creditvalue which specifies the number of credits that will be awarded to a learnerwho has achieved the learning outcomes of the unit. This has been based on: one credit for those learning outcomes achievable in 10 hours of learningtime learning time being defined as the time taken by learners at the level of theunit, on average, to complete the learning outcomes of the unit to thestandard determined by the assessment criteria the credit value of the unit remaining constant regardless of the method ofassessment used or the qualification to which it contributes.Quality assurance of centresPearson BTEC Level 4-7 qualifications provide a flexible structure for learnersenabling programmes of varying credits and combining different levels. For thepurposes of quality assurance, all individual qualifications and units areconsidered as a whole.Centres delivering the Pearson BTEC Levels 4-7 qualifications must becommitted to ensuring the quality of the units and qualifications they deliver,through effective standardisation of assessors and verification of assessordecisions. Centre quality assurance and assessment is monitored andguaranteed by Pearson.The Pearson quality assurance processes will involve: centre approval for those centres not already recognised as a centre for BTECqualifications approval for the Pearson BTEC Levels 4-7 qualifications and units.For all centres delivering Pearson BTEC qualifications at Levels 4-7, Pearsonallocates a Standards Verifier (EE) for each sector offered; who will conduct anannual visit to quality assure the programmes.ApprovalCentres are required to declare their commitment to ensuring the quality of theprogramme of learning and providing appropriate assessment opportunities forlearners that lead to valid and accurate assessment outcomes. In addition,centres will commit to undertaking defined training and online standardisationactivities.Centres already holding BTEC approval are able to gain qualification approvalonline. New centres must complete a centre approval application.Quality Assurance GuidanceDetails of quality assurance for the Pearson BTEC Levels 4-7 qualifications areavailable on our website (www.Pearson.com) under Signposts to efault.aspx).Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 20177

Programme design and deliveryMode of deliveryPearson does not normally define the mode of delivery for Pearson BTEC Level4 to Level 8 qualifications. Centres are free to offer the qualifications using anymode of delivery (such as full-time, part-time, evening only, distance learning)that meets their learners’ needs. Whichever mode of delivery is used, centresmust ensure that learners have appropriate access to the resources identified inthe specification and to the subject specialists delivering the units. This isparticularly important for learners studying for the qualification through open ordistance learning.Learners studying for the qualification on a part-time basis bring with them awealth of experience that should be utilised to maximum effect by tutors andassessors. The use of assessment evidence drawn from learners’ workenvironments should be encouraged. Those planning the programme shouldaim to enhance the vocational nature of the qualification by: liaising with employers to ensure a course relevant to learners’ specific needs accessing and using non-confidential data and documents from learners’workplaces including sponsoring employers in the delivery of the programme and, whereappropriate, in the assessment linking with company-based/workplace training programmes making full use of the variety of experience of work and life that learnersbring to the programme.ResourcesPearson BTEC Level 5 qualifications are designed to give learners anunderstanding of the skills needed for specific vocational sectors. Physicalresources need to support the delivery of the programme and the assessmentof the learning outcomes, and should therefore normally be of industrystandard. Staff delivering programmes and conducting the assessments shouldbe familiar with current practice and standards in the sector concerned. Centreswill need to meet any specific resource requirements to gain approval fromPearson.Where specific resources are required these have been indicated in individualunits in the Essential resources sections.Delivery approachIt is important that centres develop an approach to teaching and learning thatsupports the vocational nature of Pearson BTEC Level 5 qualifications and themode of delivery. Specifications give a balance of practical skill developmentand knowledge requirements, some of which can be theoretical in nature.Tutors and assessors need to ensure that appropriate links are made betweentheory and practical application and that the knowledge base is applied to thesector. This requires the development of relevant and up-to-date teachingmaterials that allow learners to apply their learning to actual events and activitywithin the sector. Maximum use should be made of learners’ experience.8Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 2017

Access and recruitmentPearson’s policy regarding access to its qualifications is that: they should be available to everyone who is capable of reaching the requiredstandards they should be free from any barriers that restrict access and progression there should be equal opportunities for all wishing to access thequalifications.Centres are required to recruit learners to BTEC qualifications with integrity.This will include ensuring that applicants have appropriate information andadvice about the qualifications and that the qualification will meet their needs.Centres should take appropriate steps to assess each applicant’s potential andmake a professional judgement about their ability to successfully complete theprogramme of study and achieve the qualification. This assessment will need totake account of the support available to the learner within the centre duringtheir programme of study and any specific support that might be necessary toallow the learner to access the assessment for the qualification. Centres shouldconsult Pearson’s policy on learners with particular requirements.Centres will need to review the entry profile of qualifications and/or experienceheld by applicants, considering whether this profile shows an ability to progressto a higher level qualification.Restrictions on learner entryThe Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling is accredited forlearners aged 18 and above.In particular sectors the restrictions on learner entry might also relate to anyphysical or legal barriers, for example people working in health, care oreducation are likely to be subject to police checks.Access arrangements and special considerationsPearson’s policy on access arrangements and special considerations for PearsonBTEC and Pearson NVQ qualifications aims to enhance access to thequalifications for learners with disabilities and other difficulties (as defined bythe Equality Act 2010) without compromising the assessment of skills,knowledge, understanding or competence.Further details are given in the policy document Access Arrangements andSpecial Considerations for BTEC and Pearson NVQ Qualifications, which can befound on the Pearson website (www.Pearson.com). This policy replaces theprevious Pearson policy (Assessment of Vocationally Related Qualifications:Regulations and Guidance Relating to Learners with Special Requirements,2002) concerning learners with particular requirements.Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 20179

Recognition of Prior LearningRecognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a method of assessment (leading to theaward of credit) that considers whether a learner can demonstrate that theycan meet the assessment requirements for a unit through knowledge,understanding or skills they already possess and so do not need to developthrough a course of learning.Pearson encourages centres to recognise learners’ previous achievements andexperiences whether at work, home and at leisure, as well as in the classroom.RPL provides a route for the recognition of the achievements resulting fromcontinuous learning.RPL enables recognition of achievement from a range of activities using anyvalid assessment methodology. Provided that the assessment requirements of agiven unit or qualification have been met, the use of RPL is acceptable foraccrediting a unit, units or a whole qualification. Evidence of learning must besufficient, reliable and valid.Unit formatUnits have the following sections.Unit titleThis is the formal title of the unit that will appear on the learner’s certificate.Unit reference numberEach unit is assigned a unit reference number that appears with the unit title onthe Register of Regulated Qualifications.LevelAll units and qualifications have a level assigned to them. The level assigned isinformed by the level descriptors defined by Ofqual, the qualifications regulator.Credit valueAll units have a credit value. The minimum credit value that may be determinedfor a unit is one, and credits can only be awarded in whole numbers. Learnerswill be awarded credits for the successful completion of whole units.Guided learning hoursGuided Learning Hours (GLH) is the number of hours that a centre deliveringthe qualification needs to provide. Guided learning means activities that directlyor immediately involve tutors and assessors in teaching, supervising, andinvigilating learners, for example lectures, tutorials, online instruction andsupervised study.10Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 2017

Unit aim and purposeThe aim provides a clear summary of the purpose of the unit and is a succinctstatement that summarises the learning outcomes of the unit.Unit introductionThe unit introduction gives the reader an appreciation of the unit in thevocational setting of the qualification, as well as highlighting the focus of theunit. It gives the reader a snapshot of the unit and the key knowledge, skillsand understanding gained while studying the unit. The unit introduction alsohighlights any links to the appropriate vocational sector by describing how theunit relates to that sector.Learning outcomesThe learning outcomes of a unit set out what a learner is expected to know,understand or be able to do as the result of a process of learning.Assessment criteriaThe assessment criteria of a unit specify the standard a learner is expected tomeet to demonstrate that a learning outcome, or set of learning outcomes, hasbeen achieved. The learning outcomes and assessment criteria clearly articulatethe learning achievement for which the credit will be awarded at the levelassigned to the unit.Unit contentThe unit content identifies the breadth of knowledge, skills and understandingneeded to design and deliver a programme of learning to achieve each of thelearning outcomes. This is informed by the underpinning knowledge andunderstanding requirements of the related National Occupational Standards(NOS), where relevant. The content provides the range of subject material forthe programme of learning and specifies the skills, knowledge andunderstanding required for achievement of the unit.Each learning outcome is stated in full and then the key phrases or conceptsrelated to that learning outcome are listed in italics followed by the subsequentrange of related topics.Specification – Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling– Issue 4 – October 2017 Pearson Education Limited 201711
