Introduction

Welcome to module PP0515 Advice and Guidance in Society (20 credits)

This module aims to provide students with an in depth understanding of the context of guidance and counselling in present day society and the key issues of equality and human rights which influence practice. This module requires students to develop their knowledge of issues of equity within guidance and counselling practice, providing a valuable grounding for those seeking future employment within the helping professions. The formative element of the module requires students to present a timeline to their tutors and peers. This artefact will depict the evolution of attitudes and approaches to equality and will also feed into the summative assignment, providing a sound context for discussion.

The summative assignment will involve an investigation and evaluation of the influence of equality and human rights theory, policy and practice on the provision of guidance and/or counselling in 21st century society. (3000 words)
