Certificate Children and Young People's IAPT Management

University College London (UCL) and King’s College London (KCL) have set up a formal consortium to deliver the London CYP IAPT training (Children and Young Peoples, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). Courses are delivered to current Managers, Supervisors and Therapists of selected CAMHS services, which have formed a collaborative group for London and the South-East of England.

This Postgraduate Certificate programme provides specialist post-qualification training for CAMHS Managers within the CYP IAPT model. The programme aims to provide Managers with the necessary background knowledge and understanding to implement change within their CAMHS service, the practical tools to manage this change effectively and a framework for reflective practice and evaluation of the implementation process. These changes are based on the following principles:

•    The workforce should be trained in evidence-based practice.
•    Outcomes should be monitored to ensure that the therapist is effectively supporting the young person in getting better.
•    Young people can help to shape their local CAMHS services.

Graduates of this programme will develop their skills in leading service change to deliver evidence-based, quality driven, outcomes informed services. They will gain critical knowledge of the theoretical, research and implementation literature that underpins such service change, and will be well placed to make the necessary changes within their CAMHS service.
