Re: IAPT low intensity phone work

Hi Stargazer, Although I am leaving the world of PWP'ing I do work for a service that is nearly all phone work. As to the effectiveness the answer is "it depends". If you have a client that really wants F2F and you can't offer it then it can be frustrating. However I have carried out some ...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

Hi All,

Got e-mail from CCU today. There is a meeting for all the students on the 7th October to meet the External Examiner so she can discuss her plans and take questions. Also, they are providing lunch !! a very small compensation :)

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

Thank you LIWY for your considered and thoughtful reply. I know that there are courses out there that are not acreditted. However the letter also said we would not get our PG Cert from the Uni either until after the recovery plan has been actioned. I know that I will not be funding anything ! As for...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

Peach, I have sent you a PM. Baa, thanks for the Feedback. The very annoying thing is that CCU had received accredation for the 2 previous years of the course and if you go on the BPS website it is still shown as acreditted !!! The Uni have advised that the problem appears to be with the Module 2 ro...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

Thanks for your support. We will keep you posted with how things go through the week. I am hoping that as the BPS pulled the accreditation on the 16.8.11 (took a month for us to be told :x ) that they have the design of the recovery plan under way. However, this could just be wishful thinking on my ...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

I have been crying :cry: This has hit me like a steam train. I have already e-mailed the head of Applied Psychology and one of the lecturers to find out what happened. I have also e-mailed my Services Operation's Manager asking her to confirm that is O.K. for me to continue Client work. We have had ...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

Thanks Ruthie for your kind words. I am sure I am carrying out every unhelpful thinking style in the Book :) Will take your advice and start ringing around on Monday. At least with my training I know what I am doing to making myself upset and angry ! Have also sent an e-mail to the BPS asking for a ...

Re: Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditati

No, is that something that we as students can get access too? I am a BPS member. Just got a letter from the South East Coast SHA. Affects about 50 people that where on the course. A lot of people were making complaints through the year but they were all brushed aside. We were told back in May that t...

Need to rant about CCU - PWP course lost its accreditation

Hi All, Got a letter today saying that Canterbury Christchurch, where I have just completed my PGCert, has had its accreditation removed by the BPS and IAPT and a recovery programme will have to be put in place to ensure that we are competent. I am not a very happy bunny to say the least. Has anyone...

Re: BPS Launch IAPT Register

Hi Will,

I would take that to mean that you can. I am reading the website as saying that all PGCerts upto and including the intake that started in Sep/Oct 2009 are O.K. to apply. If the course is still runing at that Uni it is not accredited at the moment. Think that makes sense.

Cheers
