Graduate Scheme

We have vacancies and welcome applications from recently qualified practitioners who are qualified in CBT,  CAT, or DBT.   We are currently full for all other modalities – please check this page again in a few months time for an update.  The Graduate Scheme is for those who wish to to build up their experience in private practice, or to increase their clinical contact hours in order to apply for accreditation with BACP registration..  On this scheme you would be offering  medium cost therapy to the public  (between £31 – £46 per session).  Practitioners are required to pay for their own room hire and supervision.  We require graduates to receive in house supervision and see all their BTC clients on the premises.

There is an opportunity to apply to join BTC as an associate practitioner once you gain your accreditation.

We particularly welcome applications from LGBTQI and BME practitioners as these groups are under-represented in our practitioner community.
