Full members of the ACP complete professional development activities annually that support their practice and which are required for their continued registration.
This is a policy document for all ACP members. It aims to provide broad, facilitating guidelines to support and enable the continuing professional development of all qualified Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists (CAPTs). While the policy aims primarily to be of assistance to individual clinicians, it is also intended to be useful to decision-makers who contribute to developing appropriate CPD requirements of CAPTs e.g. managers, commissioners and assessors gauging the suitability of applicants for posts, senior posts, and associated pay scales. It is not intended to be tightly prescriptive since there is a range of ways of maintaining professional competence and achieving career development.
