Overview

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages the sufferers to learn to accept their problems instead of staying in distress or denials. It helps people to stop fighting or feeling guilty. Sometimes people at a point of suffering tend to believe that everything is fine or will be fine and try to see everything in a positive outlook. Some others tend to deny their sufferings. All these attitudes worsen their mental health suffering. The primary healing process can begin when someone learns to accept whatever is happening. This attitude towards their pain makes it easier to cure and to deal healthy whenever triggers happen.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
