Entry Standards

The ACP sets minimum standards for entry to the training to ensure candidates have the necessary qualifications, experience and capacities to undertake the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy trainings accredited by the ACP. 

For many applicants the most straightforward way to demonstrate meeting the requirements will be by qualifying from one of the recognised pre-clinical courses. These courses are listed listed on the ACP website (click here). However, the standards may be met and demonstrated in different ways and they have been written to allow for flexibility and for individuals to take a more modular or portfolio route towards achieving the necessary requirements.
