This document sets out the process by which members of the UKASFP can attain the title of UKASFP-accredited solution focused practitioner, the meaning of this title and the requirements for updating their accreditation after a five-year period.
The document also includes precise details of the criteria against which accreditation applicants’ work will be assessed, and the process by which a decision is made on whether or not to grant accredited status. An accreditation application form and checklist is also included so that applicants can see what additional information they need to supply.
The document is intended to give a complete enough picture of what is involved in applying for accreditation to enable both members and non-members to make an informed decision on whether to apply for accreditation.
It is a prerequisite of applying for accreditation that individuals are current members of the UKASFP. Furthermore, there are additional resources available to members, via the UKASFP website, that are intended to assist anyone applying for accredited status. These resources include a film which takes the viewer through the accreditation process, and a document entitled “Notes for accreditors and applicants” which includes more detailed description and discussion of the different ways in which applicants may meet each of the criteria, together with video links to live recordings giving examples of work which would meet these criteria.
This document, and the accompanying materials on the members’ area of the website, will be periodically updated to reflect developments in the process of accreditation.
