Applicants without a recognised and accredited core mental health professional training (such as Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners* or Psychotherapists and Counsellors without UKCP or BACP accreditation) can apply but must be able to meet the required KSA process.
*Please note that PWP’s need to have a minimum of 3 years full-time experience, two of which are as a qualified practitioner.

The training programme consists of three days working within an IAPT service and two days at university taught by experts in the field. Each training place involves being employed by a service for the length of the training contract. Contracts of employment will be at a Band 6 or equivalent and fixed-term for one year whilst training. The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience/KCL and Royal Holloway/CNWL will provide the training.
