Celebration of Training Awards

The Certificate course is the mandatory training for GBS volunteers and was designed to meet the busy lives of islanders by offering a combined learning package of distance learning and face-to-face training. The course was offered to a wide variety of students and some will be volunteering for the Charity.

The diploma in counselling course gives volunteers the opportunity to enhance their skills and study general counselling. It is a two-year, level five accredited course entailing approximately 500 hours of study, both formal and informal. The training represents a considerable investment on the part of the individuals and, thanks to on-island donations, the Guernsey Bereavement Service has also been able to provide some financial support for our volunteers.
