Non-Executive Directors

Non-Executive Directors 

We are looking for three new Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist Non-Executive Directors who are members of the ACP to join the Board. 

We are also looking for new Lay Non-Executive Directors who are not Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists but have an interest in the work of the ACP and have expertise to offer.

About the Role

The Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP) is the professional body for Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists in the UK. It is an Accredited Register of the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and is responsible for regulating the training and practice standards of child and adolescent psychotherapy across the NHS, third and private sectors.

We want to increase and diversify the community of people who contribute to the crucial work of the ACP.  We need a range of voices and experience in order to advance standards, promote child psychotherapy and support members.  

Lay Non-Executive Directors may bring specific areas of expertise from their professional backgrounds such as business, finance, law, marketing and communications or have experience within the wider health, social care and voluntary sectors that will add to the breadth and depth of knowledge that informs the running the ACP. 

The role of CAPT Non-Executive Directors is a particular opportunity to increase the diversity of views and experience from within the profession that are brought to bear on the direction and work of the ACP.

Time Commitment: The Board meets four times a year on Fridays from 3.00 - 5.30pm. All Board members need to undertake other limited tasks between meetings.  

How to Apply: Please send a brief CV with a covering letter stating which role you are applying for, why you are interested in the role and what you can contribute to the ACP. Send to:

Closing date: Thursday 2 November 2023.
