Yes, I knew an AP who got on to HI training. She had a non-IAPT mental health background, worked briefly (literally a few weeks) as an AP in IAPT, and then was successful in getting a HI training place in the same service.

Can an AP apply for a HI CBT course?

Hi all, I have a BA in psychology and have been working as an assistant psychologist for the last 4 years.
