Provisional Accreditation as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the
BABCP means that the Entry Criteria and
Minimum Training Standards
for Accreditation have been achieved.
Full Accreditation is dependent on submission, 12 months after the date of
Provisional Accreditation, of an application for Full Accreditation
(see separate criteria and guidelines).
The overall process of Accreditation is not complete until Full Accreditation
has been granted. If an application for Full Accreditation is not received, or
granted, then the practitioner's status of Provisional Accreditation will
lapse, and the individual will have removed themselves from the CBT Register UK.
Please note, if you have completed a BABCP Level 2 Accredited CBT training course, you will need to use the Level 2 Provisional Application form. (Link to Level 2 Accreditation page)
Provisional Accreditation applications are assessed by two separate accreditors.
If issues are raised by either of the accreditors during the process and are not resolved within a six- week timeframe, the association will recommend the applicant withdraw their application.
The advice would then be to reapply for practitioner accreditation at a time when the issue/s raised have been addressed.
If applicants do not wish to withdraw as recommended, they may appeal, initially to the Senior Accreditation Liaison Officer, and then to the Practitioner Accreditation Committee.
The six-week time frame would commence from the date when/if the accreditor stops the process, in order to request further information.
