Breaking it Down – BACP Accreditation Guide


Want to tackle your accreditation but don’t know where to start? This mini-guide breaks down the process into manageable chunks, helps you plan your time and set SMART goals to get you to the finish.



Tackling the accreditation form can be a daunting process. Many people are put off because they can’t see the wood for the trees and become overwhelmed at the task in front of them. It is hard to know where to start, which section to write in which order and how to work your way steadily and consistently to reach the end point. 

This guide will take the panic out of the planning and give you a solid framework for starting the process. Going through the form step by step, you will see how it hangs together, and how it can be broken down into manageable pieces. 

You will see how to plan this as a project, set time commitments so you keep chipping away and use SMART goal setting to keep you on track. 

Don’t procrastinate because you don’t know where to start. Use this guide to focus your time and effort so you get the job done in your own timescales and meet your own goals.

This is for guidance only and, in line with BACP policy, is not a template for writing your own submission.
