BPS membership

Post by em1994 » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:56 pm

Do you need to be a graduate member of the BPS (I.e. pay the fee) to be able to work as an AP if the person spec asks for "entitlement to graduate membership of the BPS"? I'm assuming this just means that my degree is BPS accredited but I'm now worrying that this means that I need to be a member!

Thanks

Nope, you only need an accredited degree, you do not need to be a BPS member. Eligibility is what matters :)

You don't have to, however, having a memberships (MBPsS after your name) reflects on your aspiration to represent the highest possible professional standards, also your granted with the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). I am a membership, and you get invitations to seminars, workshops etc. As, I said you don't have to, but I would recommend you to do it :)

PS: Also, if you want to become a counselling/clinical psychologist I would recommend you to do it before you will have to pay the higher fee :)
