Out of Practice can include -
Please submit a Leave of Absence form [Word] if you are fully accredited and will be out of practice for more than twelve months.
Change of email We want to make sure you receive your annual Reaccreditation Declaration and renewal emails. So, if you take time off and your work email address is linked to your BABCP account, or you change your email for any other reason, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently returned to practice? You can still submit your Declaration if you are back in practice even if you have had extended time off for any part of the preceding twelve months.
If you are selected for Reaccreditation Audit and you have had a period out of practice in the previous twelve months, please explain this within the Additional Information section of the forms.
We don't expect you do do CPD or supervision when you were out of practice. However, you should be in practice at the time of Audit.
If we don't know about your leave and you are invited for Audit whilst you are off, you will be given a new audit date once you have returned to work.
