BABCP Accreditation for Evidence Based Parent Training Practitioners

BABCP hopes to soon launch accreditation for Evidence Based Parent Training (EBPT) Practitioners who have completed a Level 2 Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Parent Training course.
Please see below for details of this Accreditation process, and keep checking our website for the date of launch.

Becoming Accredited

In order to apply for accreditation as an EBPT practitioner you must have completed a BABCP Level 2 accredited Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Parent Training practitioner course.

Stages of Accreditation

There are two stages of BABCP accreditation – Provisional and Full.

You are a recognised accredited practitioner with Provisional Accreditation; at the end of the provisional period you will demonstrate (through a Full Accreditation Application) that you have maintained good habits in terms of practice, supervision and CPD.

To apply for provisional accreditation, you need to:

  • Be a member of the BABCP
  • Either have a core profession in mental health or demonstrate you have other mental health training and/or experience by completing a EBPT KSA portfolio
  • Have completed 12 months of practice within your core profession or equivalent (or a subsequent mental health profession) which was accountable to a senior member of that profession
  • Have met the Minimum Training Standards through completion of a Level 2 BABCP accredited EBPT course.

Provisional Accreditation

Making an Application

To apply for accreditation you must first become a member of BABCP. Click here for more information and an application form.

Provisional Accreditation as an Evidence Based Parent Training Practitioner with the BABCP means that the Entry Criteria and Minimum Training Standards for Accreditation have been achieved through completion of a Level 2 BABCP accredited EBPT course.

Full Accreditation

Full Accreditation is dependent on submission, 12-24 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.

Reaccreditation

Reaccreditation is now an annual process. Fully Accredited members in current practice can take personal responsibility for upkeeping standards for ongoing supervision and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This is demonstrated by making an annual declaration of Reaccreditation. This process is supported by a Random Audit.
