It’s time to plan the next steps of your career.

Come and join us online for the 2021 student event ‘Bridging the gap’ on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th February. The event is designed to help you take the next step from training to become a qualified professional. By creating your own workshop schedule, the flexible programme allows you to plan a day that best suits you. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear from departments within BACP along with some external exhibitors.


The programme for this year will include four strands including navigating a successful career, setting up in private practice and self-care & personal development.

This event is split over two days and you will be able to watch your choice of workshops. The presenters will be available in the chatroom throughout their session to answer any questions you may have.

Not only will you have a wide variety of presentations to watch, you will also be able to hear inspirational messages from experienced practitioners and clients for whom counselling has changed their lives.

The live stream will begin at 9.30am and conclude at 4.00pm on both days. The full programme will be uploaded online shortly.

If you are unable to view the live stream, you will have access to the on-demand service for 3 months after the event.
