*Survey Now Open*


Towards a Standard Minimum Dataset for counselling services embedded in higher and further education


As part of the SCORE initiative, we’re exploring the data that services routinely collect about their students who access counselling or mental health teams within the sector. Knowing this information will identify similarities and gaps in data collection that will inform the development of a standard minimum dataset for the sector. To inform this goal, we have launched a survey and a series of online focus group consultations to learn more about the data services collect.


This survey is open to practitioners working in counseling and/or mental health services embedded in FE/HE, students, and researchers working in this space.
