RA CPD has developed an Information, Advice and Guidance course (distance learning with online tutorials over an 6 – 8 week period) for staff who give advice but for whom it is probably not their primary role. Completion of the course earns a nationally recognised level 2 qualification. RA CPD has gained funding for the course and will ask only for a minimal fee to cover registration costs should the learner not complete. The programme covers how to plan, conduct and evaluate information, advice or guidance sessions and enables learners to acquire the skills to establish co-operative working relationships.
