This route takes 24 months to complete and includes a requirement for 20% off the job training and an End Point Assessment. 

The qualification element of the off the job training can be any qualification currently accepted for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals. Currently these two qualifications are being offered by Apprenticeship Training providers: 

  • Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development or 
  • Post Graduate Certificate in a Career Related Area* 

* The recommendation in the Statutory Guidance is that for those people providing personal career guidance the Post Graduate Diploma in Career Guidance/QCD should be held or the Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development. The apprenticeship funding of the post graduate certificate therefore provides a stepping stone to the achievement of the post graduate diploma for which additional funding would be required.
