Study type Taught


This curriculum has been developed as part of CYP IAPT and the National Implementation Plan to provide high quality low intensity case management and clinical skills supervision to therapists delivering low-intensity interventions.

You can contact a member of the IAPT team if you require more information.

The Certificate is taught by our IAPT team of staff which includes Psychological Well-being Practitioner lecturers, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist lecturers and associate lecturers. The programme is designed to equip students with the skills to deliver effective low-intensity case management supervision to support the structured, evidence-based CYP IAPT way of working with children, young people and families. Specifically where there are common mental health problems of low mood, anxiety, and behavioural challenges. The Certificate consists of 2 compulsory 30 credit modules, assessed at Level 7.

The programme uses lectures, skills workshops, seminars, work-based learning, and supervision of supervision to support trainees in developing knowledge and critical understanding of case management supervision for evidence-based low intensity working in CAMH and MHST (Mental Health School Teams). All students must have access to at least one supervisee who is currently a student CWP or student EMHP or qualified CWP, or qualified EMHP working as a low-intensity clinician.

The programme is suitable for staff whose role includes supervising practitioners who deliver brief evidence-based interventions for children, adolescents and families.

During the period of training, students are required to have supervisees. They will be required to be delivering regular clinical case management supervision, to be able to video record their sessions with supervisees, and to use the range of Children and Young People Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Routine Outcome Measures.

The Certificate places a strong emphasis on work-based learning, and students will develop and assess the knowledge and skills developed in workshops, individual and online learning contexts, supported by academic staff. Students’ participation in the Certificate is with the full support of their employer, who will nominate students to be considered for the programme. It is therefore assumed that the employer will provide students with sufficient support and time to complete their assessed work and to participate fully in all elements of their learning.
