Placement provision: minimum standards

Placement providers must be capable of providing supervised practice consistent with the standards set out in BPS Accreditation through Partnership Handbook; Guidance for Clinical Psychology programmes (p.27-30) enabling the trainees to achieve the learning outcomes set out in that same document (sections 1 and 2), and which meet the standard set by the programme in line with HCPC requirements, that supervisors attend supervisor training once every 5 years as a minimum. In addition, supervision in relation to the innovative placement activity in third year (see above) may fall outside of the above specifications, relating as it does to non-clinical work. Quality of supervision in relation to this work will be closely monitored by the tutor team in both the planning and active phases of the work.
