Reaccreditation for Supervisor and/or Trainer Accreditation

If you are an accredited supervisor and/or trainer, we will invite you to make online Declarations of Reaccreditation for these accreditations at the same time as practitioner accreditation.

Synchronisation of Declaration dates

If you were awarded one or both of these accreditations after 2017, the date you will be due to sign Reaccreditation online Declaration will be extended to synchronise with the renewal date for your most recent Accreditation. This is so that you can make the online declarations for both or all accreditations at the same time.

Example If your Practitioner Accreditation is due for renewal in November 2021 and you are awarded Supervisor Accreditation in July 2021, you will not make any declaration until July 2022, when you will make them for both Practitioner and Supervisor at the same time.

If you subsequently apply for Trainer Accreditation, all three Reaccreditation Declaration dates would be synchronised with the anniversary of the award date of the Trainer Accreditation.

If you were awarded Supervisor and/or Trainer Accreditation prior to 2017, your due dates will have already been synchronised.

Provision of Supervision

You should be provide at least 20 hours of supervision per year.  We recommend you record this as you go along on the Provision of Supervision Log [Word].

Supervisory supervision

Accredited supervisors should be receiving appropriate levels of supervision for your supervisory practice – equivalent to five per cent of your supervisory caseload or one hour per month, from qualified CBT therapists.   

We recommend that you log your supervisory and training supervision (if applicable), together with your clinical supervision on the Collaborative Supervision Summary [Word]. We will ask for a  completed version of this for the previous twelve months if you are selected for Audit.

Supervisory CPD

You must complete one piece of CBT supervisory CPD every year. We suggest you fill our the Supervisory Reflective Statement [Word] soon after the activity and you should keep other evidence of the activity.  Details for the previous year will be required at Audit.

The activities need to be specifically related to CBT supervision.

Acceptable Supervisory CPD activities include -

  • attendance at supervision workshops
  • attendance at conferences and seminars relating to CBT Supervisory Practice
  • involvement in relevant research
  • relevant publications by youreading relevant books and journals etc
  • involvement with Supervision SIGs
  • relevant media involvement
  • hours spent developing CBT Supervision services may count once only

Giving supervision, and having Supervisory Supervision don't count as supervisory CPD.

Provision of training

You are expected to have delivered a minimum of 20 hours of training within one year. You can record this as you go along on the Provision of Training Log [Word].

Trainer supervision

You should be receiving appropriate levels of support or supervision for the training you lead –  a minimum level of two hours total per year, mostly from qualified CBT therapists.

We recommended that you log your training supervision, together with your clinical supervision on the Collaborative Supervision Summary [Word]. We will ask for a completed version of this for the previous twelve months if you are selected for Reaccreditation Audit.

Trainer CPD, Evidence and Reflective Statements

You should do at least one training-related (but not necessarily CBT specific) CPD activity per year. This can count as one of the five practitioner CPD activities referred to above only if it is CBT specific.

We suggest that you fill in your Trainer Reflective Statement [Word] close to the time and keep any evidence of the activity.  Details of the previous year will be required at Audit.

If invited for Reaccreditation Audit, please record this activity, as well as your practitioner CPD, in the appropriate rows of the CBT CPD Summary [Word] (Evidence for Audit). One piece of supervisory CPD may also count as one of your practitioner activities; if this is the case, please note this in the Additional Information Section of the form.

Acceptable training CPD activities

There are many activities you can do so show a sustained commitment to development as a CBT Trainer. They might not necessarily be specifically related to CBT, but the Auditors would expect you to demonstrate their relevance to your CBT Training Practice.

  • attendance at workshops or courses relating to training practice and skills
  • attendance at conferences and seminars relating to training practice, for example learning to use presentation skills, presentation aids such as PowerPoint or interactive whiteboards
  • involvement in relevant research
  • relevant publications by you
  • reading relevant books and journals etc.,
  • involvement with Training SIGs
  • relevant media involvement.

Variations

  • The hours spent developing CBT training services or programmes count once 
  • The first delivery of any ‘Train the Trainer’ programme can count, but subsequent repeated delivery hours can't be counted again.
  • Delivering CBT training, and having training supervision do not count as CPD 
  • If the activity is CBT specific, it can also be used as evidence of your practitioner CPD, but if it is specific to training but not CBT, it should only be shown as trainer CPD.

If you are invited for Audit, the records relating to all of the Accreditations you have will be scrutinised at the same time.
