“As a previous student of ACAP I have also held in the highest regard the training and care that ACAP provides. Because of this I am always confident in taking on students from ACAP as they are well equipped, trained and prepared for the demanding environment that MISA provides.
I have found that ACAP students come with a level of understanding and commitment that sets them apart as student counsellors and which translates into high levels of care and empathy for the clients. ACAP students also demonstrate a willingness to get involved with the day-to-day running of the organisation.
I have no hesitation in recommending ACAP students for any agency wishing to expand or increase the quality of their counselling services.”
Counselling Coordinator – Men’s Information and Support Association
“I am always pleased and confident to take on students from ACAP because of their level of competency, as a result of their training and their commitment and dedication to learning. ACAP students demonstrate a willingness to get involved with the daily activities within their role and also to work within a multidisciplinary team at Villa Maria.
Throughout their time in placement, the students are able to widen their skills and gain valuable experience in counselling.
The students are very respectful, honouring the values and mission of Villa Maria, particularly our person-centred approach.
I have no hesitation in recommending ACAP students for any agency wishing to expand their service.
This has been highly successful at Villa Maria and has allowed our services to expand and cover more client needs across Villa Maria.”

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
We are committed to creating a people centred college that supports and promotes Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for all. This philosophy and policy is a work in progress and is brought to you by ACAP’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group (a mix of ACAP students and staff). We are working towards a college culture where every voice is heard and respected. Where you have freedom from discrimination and harassment, and feel supported, valued and included. If you have questions or any ideas and suggestions on how we can improve, we would love to hear from you and always value feedback.
