Reaccreditation by Online Declaration
The new annual system of Reaccreditation was launched at the beginning of July. All fully accredited members now reaccredit every year.
The New Process
Reaccreditation is a process by which fully accredited practitioners, supervisors and trainers listed on CBT Register UK can take personal responsibility for upkeeping standards for ongoing supervision and continuing professional development (CPD).
Fully Accredited members in current practice will demonstrate this commitment by making annual online declarations. This is currently by email. Information on the declaration can be found at About Annual Online Declaration.
You will be invited by email to make your electronic declaration a few weeks prior it being due. The due date will generally be on the anniversary of the award of your last accreditation or reaccreditation, even if that was less than five years ago. EG a member who gained full accreditation 1/2/16 will reaccredit within the new system on 1/2/19 and every year after that on the same date
Should no declaration be made, the invitation email will be followed up with a further reminder from accreditation admin - and if there is no response to this further prompt within a calendar month, this will result in self-removal from the Register. In this case, it will be possible to go through the process of Reinstatement of Accreditation.
Verification of Accreditation
After receiving each online declaration, the admin team will send a confirmation of reaccreditation within 28 days. Kindly be patient and only chase this is more than 28 days has elapsed since you sent the declaration.
Certificates are no longer issued at reaccreditation, so whether you have recently reaccredited or whether you have stayed accredited whilst waiting for the process to launch and will reaccredit in future months, your ongoing accreditation status can be verified on the CBT Register UK.
Documents for Recording and Audit
Commencing in autumn 2018, there will be an ongoing audit of a percentage of fully accredited members who have made declarations each year. It is statistically likely that you will be audited every five years, however the selection will be made randomly so it is not possible to know when or how often you will be audited.
We recommend that you use the forms required for audit to also contemporaneously record your supervision and CPD for twelve month periods.
If you are selected for audit, you will only need to show the previous twelve months' details on these documents. Any periods of leave of absence should be noted on the forms - you will not be expected to demonstrate CPD or supervision in this time, however you must be in practice to complete the audit.
