BABCP full accreditation

Postby hitraineeperson » Fri Sep 29, 2017 5:15 pm

Hi guys, I wanted to ask - if you complete High Intensity training, are you automatically eligible to apply for full accreditation or do you have to practise as a qualified HI for X amount of time before you can? One of my former colleagues advised that if you're fully accredited, your banding goes up so there's a strong financial incentive obviously to do this.

No, you are only provisionally accredited if you apply. It takes a year (or more with the slowish of their processing!) of further supervision and CPD to apply for fully accreditation.

Provisional accreditation is usually what is required to get a band 7 post.
At least I'm not as mad as that one!
