BACP UC is actively involved in developing an evidence base for counselling in universities and colleges. This evidence base will involve both descriptive data (i.e. collated information about current service provision in the sector) and research data.
The main purposes of this activity are:
to conduct research into aspects of FE and HE counselling where there is currently no evidence base and that are relevant to the range of stakeholders involved in funding, providing and receiving counselling in the FE and HE sector.
to provide evidence in a form that is accessible and useful to counsellors and Head of Service working in the FE and HE sector for use in service reviews, reporting and discussions with colleagues of other disciplines.
to provide evidence to contribute to development and improvement in counselling provision in the FE/HE sector.
