Help with your application

 As well as the Guides above, we have other resources to help you with your application.  

Online Accreditation Workshop
Our online accreditation e-learning resource takes you through the application process step by step. It is based on a series of videos filmed in a workshop setting, where a BACP accreditation assessor explains each of the requirements and answers questions from the audience. It also includes FAQs and ‘check your understanding’ modules.

Disability support
We want to ensure that all members can access our accreditation schemes and provide support for applicants with disabilities. You should inform us of any disability before you make your application, otherwise we may not be able to help or make reasonable adjustments. 

If you have any questions or would like the guidance in a different format, please contact us. 

Application checklist 
Our accreditation office team checks every application before it goes to the assessors to ensure that everything has been completed correctly. Here’s their advice on how to avoid the most common mistakes.
