The Scope of Practice and Education (SCoPEd) framework is a ground-breaking shared standards framework, developed by six Professional Standards Authority accredited bodies, including BACP, which represent approximately 75,000 counsellors and psychotherapists.

The framework transparently sets out the core training, practice and competence requirements for counsellors and psychotherapists working with adults and will enable a credible, diverse and thriving counselling and psychotherapy profession 

All SCoPEd partners have adopted the framework and are continuing to work together.
