We are very pleased to announce that the BPC has now been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority(PSA) under its Accredited Registers programme. The process has taken many months since we started our application late last year – but now we are through. This work was led by our Head of Services, Janice Cormie, and we would like to thank Janice for the tremendous work she has put into achieving our accreditation.
This was a joint application with the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP), and our joint accreditation strengthens the relationship between our organisations and enhances our effectiveness in the external world.
We have been assured that the PSA will work to ensure that NHS commissioners, employers and members of the public are made aware of the programme, so that they will seek to refer to and employ individuals who are on an accredited register. We have arranged with them that they will circulate the news of our accreditation to their list of Clinical Commissioning Groups and other stakeholders, alongside our own news distributions.
BPC registrants and MIs can now start using the Accredited Register logo on their websites and in print materials. Details about accreditation and how to use the logo are contained in the attached document. If you have any specific queries, please contact Janice at firstname.lastname@example.org
