Accreditation Telephone Service Resumes
Following consultation with the membership and by request, BABCP is again providing a telephone service for Accreditation queries. The service is facilitated by Accreditation Liaison Officers (ALOs) in the Bury office.
It is expected that members will have already consulted with the information and guidelines available on the BABCP website for answers to basic queries before utilising this service. The ALOs do not expect applicants to use the service to ask basic application or administration questions about the process.
Initially the service is available between 2.00pm and 4pm on Wednesdays only.
To use the service, please call 0161 705 4304 then press option 1.
At the A&R Committee meeting held in February 2014, discussion relating to increasing the minimum monthly supervision to 1.5 hours for full time
clinical practice was broad ranging and included views such as the evidence base supporting quality rather than quantity aspects of supervision; the
importance of BABCP taking responsibility as a standard setting body for ensuring that previously set ‘minimum’ cannot be misinterpreted by those not
fully supportive of accredited practitioners; and advisability of bringing our standard more into line with standards within psychotherapy more generally.
It was considered on balance, taking aspects of these factors into account, that an increase would be generally beneficial, and supportive of those who might
need to lobby more locally for adequate support for their practice.
A number of important updates are underway regarding the areas of Recognised Core Professions, CBT Register UK listing, CPD requirements and the Supervisor Report

Accreditation Enquiries Policy
The current BABCP policy is for all accreditation related enquiries to be made via the Accreditation Contact form
This is for two reasons.
Firstly, E-mail contact provides a record of the communication that can be referred to and reflected back to, often needed in the case of complex detailed enquiries.
Secondly, it is a resource issue in terms of efficient allocation of accreditation department resources to various areas and to keep costs down.
However, starting Wednesday 29 April there will be a telephone service for queries that can not be answered using the documents on the website. This is initially available on Wednesdays between 2.00pm and 4.00pm as per the statement above.
