BABCP full accreditation

Post by 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!

My understanding is that those that do the IAPT course need further evidence which can take a while before they can apply for accreditation but those on accredited 2 year courses can apply upon passing second year.

That's not correct I'm afraid. You can apply for provisional accreditation as soon as you receive your diploma.

Certainly true in the service I currently work for. A nearby service has recently advertised for qualified CBT posts at band 6 without accreditation. Maybe its the difference between actual and provisional?
