How far into it are you, and what parts of the role are you struggling with/not enjoying?
Personally, as it's less than a year's course, I would stick it out, just so you have the qualification under your belt. It won't just advance your clinical skills, but also demonstrates an ability to study at a post graduate level.

Certain iapt services, like the one I'm in, is a lot less typical of pure iapt. All our work is face to face, unless someone wants a phone appointment, and we have upto 45 minutes at step 2, and I only do 1 workshop a week, and they certainly aren't pushed upon clients.
Complete your training and see if you can use it in an environment you enjoy more. It's a well respected qualification, and if you like secondary care, you could always go on to do full cbt training and it will benefit you hugely for that!
