What’s ASN offering me?

If you’re an Accreditee…

Accreditees are BACP members looking for support with BACP Accreditation. Whether you’re getting started, stuck, or dealing with being deferred, we’re here to help.

If you’re accredited…

If you’re an accredited BACP member who is well motivated and has the relevant experience and skills you too could become an ASN Provider.

Why is the Accreditation Support Network needed?

Following my own accreditation experience, I decided to find a way to provide the kind of accreditation support I had wanted for myself but had not found; something beyond that available from my supervision and BACP.

Two years on I tentatively started my first local support group for accreditees and discovered that my experience was the norm rather than the exception, that there is a widespread and largely unmet need for accreditation support and I decided to find a way to meet that need. Twelve months on, ASN was launched.
