Training Council and the Accreditation of Training Schools

Introduction

The provision of training, in Training Schools across the UK, is regulated and accredited by the Training Council of the ACP according to their Quality Assurance Framework for the Training of Child Psychotherapists.  The Training Council is composed of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and lay and professional members and meets bi-monthly to manage this work.  In addition a separate meeting – the Training Development Group, composed of the members of the Training Council with the Heads of the Training Schools, also meets bi-monthly to consider training matters. 

Training Schools must be accredited every four years and must publish an Annual Report.  The accreditation process is described in the Quality Assurance Framework.  Each accreditation report includes commendations, conditions and recommendations, as needed.  Each report is presented both in full and in a short executive summary version.  Since 2014 the accreditation reports have been made available to the public.  The Quality Assurance Framework for the Training of Child Psychotherapists is available below, followed by a section for each Training School which includes their latest annual report and both the full and executive summary for their last accreditation.
