The Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP) is designed for counsellors working in high schools from all over the world who provide advice to students on career and university selection. Counsellors do not need any previous qualifications or minimum experience in the industry to complete the programme. They do however need to be actively working at a specific school and have an official school email address. Once the counsellor has gained the THE CAP Accreditation, the school will also become a THE Accredited Counsellor School for the duration of time the counsellor is working there and accredited.

THE recognise that counsellors play a truly pivotal role in helping students make life changing decisions on their future studies and careers, and this programme aims to enable their development as practitioners. Through innovative content, expert-generated resources, thought-provoking discussions, and unparalleled access to industry-led best practices, this is an accreditation programme that is truly relevant and valued by the education sector.
