Supervisor Reaccreditation Requirements

Supervisor Reaccreditation will take place via online declaration in the same way as practitioner reaccreditation once the new system is in place. You will be expected to make the declaration at the same time as your practitioner accreditation.

For further general information about the new reaccreditation process, please follow this link:


Provision of Supervision

A minimum of 20 hours of supervisory practice per year should have been provided.

Supervisory Supervision

Accredited supervisors should be receiving appropriate levels of supervision for their supervisory practice – equivalent to 5% of their supervisory caseload or one hour per month, mostly from qualified CBT therapists.

Logging of Supervision

Until the new system is launched, it is recommended that you keep your own logs of supervisory supervision.

Supervisory CPD

Accredited supervisors should engage in at least one CBT specific supervision-related CPD activity per year which can count as one of the five practitioner CPD activities referred to above.

Acceptable Supervisory CPD Activities:

There are many activities that could be included as evidence of sustained commitment to development as a CBT Supervisor. The activities need to be specifically related to CBT supervision. The list below is not exhaustive and you may include other activities if they contribute to your skills and development as a CBT Supervisor.

Activities might include:

attendance at workshops
courses relating to CBT Supervisory Practice and skills
attendance at conferences and seminars relating to CBT Supervisory Practice
involvement in relevant research
relevant publications by you
reading relevant books and journals etc.
involvement with Supervision SIGs,
relevant media involvement.

The hours spent developing CBT Supervision services may count once only.

Providing CBT Supervision, and undertaking Supervisory Supervision do not count as relevant CPD activity.
