What opportunities will this course give me?

Having the ability to deliver clear and influential guidance to peers, customers and employees is a valuable asset for any career. Thats why we are delighted to offer this popular level 2 award in Information, Advice or Guidance.

The programme is available fully funded and is an entirely remote course, meaning learners can complete it in their own time. You will gain an abundance of new skills which will prove your competency to employers. Plus, you will leave Eastleigh with a nationally recognised level 2 qualification: a brilliant enhancement to your CV and employability.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop both your professional and personal skills and awareness.

Why is this course for me?

This varied, engaging qualification will develop your knowledge and fundamental understanding of information, advice and guidance and how they apply within their own contexts. Learners will be taught not only how to implement these skills in practice, but also how specific methods of interaction can maximise their impact.

Its a diverse course that can support students from most industries or aspirations, particularly those dealing with members of the public. The course is highly accessible, with full funding available for students who are unemployed (and 19 or over), or those in employment and 23+. The College also provides full funding for any learners aged 19-23 who already hold a level 2 award or higher.

As a remote access course, we welcome learners from across the country and beyond every year. There will never be any need for you to attend College, allowing you to work on your own timeframe and in a way that fits in with your lifestyle.

Ultimately, the course aims to prepare learners for further training and to sufficiently support roles in which the learner is required to give information, advice and guidance to others.

●Signposting and referrals
