When we adopted SCoPEd, we’ve entered a period of implementation. During this period, all our membership category entry requirements will be aligned to the standards of the SCoPEd framework columns. 

Our transition period opened in February 2024 which means you’re able to move between BACP membership categories, if you wish to, using the temporary accreditation mechanism and where you can evidence you have the right skills, knowledge, training and experience to do so. 

In early 2026  new accreditation routes will be available to move between membership categories. These routes are being developed and will consider training and CPD alongside other existing skills and experience. 

See how your current membership category will be represented in the SCoPEd framework:

Student BACP members
Individual BACP members
Registered BACP members
Accredited BACP members
Senior accredited BACP members
Organisational BACP members
Retired BACP members
