CAT Supervisor Training:  Guidelines for Training

The usual pathway for training as a CAT Supervisor is that

  • You will be a CAT Practitioner with 2 years’ post-accreditation experience or a CAT Psychotherapist
  • You will have completed a minimum of 16 CAT cases under supervision 

The training is an apprenticeship model through which you are supported by a Senior Supervisor as you work through a number of components.  You will need to

  • Identify a Senior Supervisor
  • Make an application to begin CAT Supervisor Training outlining your personal plan

Once approved you will work through two parts

  • In Part 1 you would usually attend an ACAT Accredited Supervisor Training course
  • In Part 2 you run your own supervision group under supervision
  • You supplement this with additional components to support your training and meet your own learning needs

The Supervisor Training Handbook is available to download at the end of this page or from the 'Training' section of your personal home page once you have logged-in. It contains information about the training from the application and planning stage through to completion.  It also includes all the forms and guidance that you need along with the assessment and review process.    

Please note that although this is the usual pathway for Supervisor Training, you may not be able to proceed in this way due to various factors, for example

  • You may attend an ACAT course prior to completing your 16 cases due to the timing of the course or because funding is available
  • You may choose to attend the course purely as CPD, as you are not sure if you will apply to train as a supervisor at that stage
  • There may be a delay setting up and running your own group so you cannot move straight from completion of the course (Part 1) to Part 2

Supervisor training may therefore run over a longer period of time and reflect a more varied route.  These situations are discussed in the Handbook and you can get in touch with queries about your situation.

The Vice Chair for Supervisor Training is Jane Stephens.  You can contact Jane with queries relating to applications or the training pathway via Maria Cross in the ACAT office (maria.cross@acat.me.uk)

The supervisor training documents are available for download at the end of this page, but are also located under 'Training' and 'Training Resources' on your personal home page once logged-in.
