Additional Information
Awareness in Bereavement Care has been designed specifically for Cruse
Volunteers, to equip them with the awareness, skills and knowledge to offer
the range of services that Cruse now provides. The Foundation Course is divided
into 16 three hour modules.
Ascentis has accredited the course as 60 hours comprising 48 hours of taught
time and 12 hours of personal learning. The course is flexible in that sessions
can be delivered one at a time in an evening or half day. It is hoped all trainees
will attend every session. In order to complete the course there is a requirement
for trainees to attend 14 out of 16 sessions, of which four must be sessions
1&2 and 15&16 on the first and last Saturdays of the course.
It is important that sessions are spread out. e.g. held at weekly intervals with
additional space to provide sufficient opportunity for reflection, practice and
linkwork in between sessions.
All new Bereavement Volunteers with client contact are also required to complete
additional modules in their first twelve months following induction, Safeguarding,
A Childs Grief and Sudden and Traumatic Death.

The course has been accredited by Ascentis at level 2. Trainees should keep
and compile their portfolios and keep a Learning Journal.
This will apply to all trainees, whether or not they apply for Ascentis certification.
Ascentis will select sample portfolios from those seeking certification for
moderation, so our trainers keep these portfolios until the certification process
is complete. Once moderation is complete, Central Office will be informed by
Ascentis of the outcome and certificates will be sent to the successful trainees,
via their trainer or Branch/Area office.

The cost of certification is 45. This is an additional cost to the course fee and is
Non Refundable. This is optional. It is not essential to have your work
accredited to become a Bereavement Volunteer, however, it will provide
trainees with an opportunity to achieve national validation for their work, which
has been accredited by Ascentis at Level 2 of the National Qualifications Framework. This
may be valuable to trainees wishing to pursue higher level study and may also be useful
as part of their career development. Ascentis was chosen by the Training Committee after
considering a number of validating authorities. Ascentis is a national awarding body
approved by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. It works across England, Wales
and Northern Ireland and uses a postal moderation system. As a national awarding body
Ascentis has the expertise to work with a variety of training organisations to develop
specialised and bespoke courses to meet their specific needs. It is highly respected.
