Once all ten modules have been studied and you are satisfied that your learning is complete, you can request the final examination paper together which you also complete at home like your previous Assignments. After completion, the final examination paper can be submitted to Jigsaw Counselling + Consultancy services (training section) for marking. On successfully completion of the Exam you will be awarded your certificate.

The programme is home or work-based enabling students to complete the programme without having to attend scheduled college teaching sessions. At the end of each module you will have the opportunity to evaluate your newfound knowledge through a test questionnaire that you complete at home. There is no need to return the test questionnaires, however, if you experience any difficulties or require further assistance, your allocated tutor at Jigsaw will answer any questions you may have regarding the Programme.
