Students are responsible for gaining appropriate supervised practice and producing evidence of this. Evidence of having met the professional requirements for supervised practice is demonstrated by the submission of a supervision log, signed by the clinical supervisor, by supervisor's reference and by formal assessment of a recorded clinical session. Students must aim to have weekly external CBT supervision, and a minimum of 2 hours per calendar month whilst in practice.

Students must also undertake a minimum of 10 hours personal CBT either with a course peer (who must have completed the first supervision module successfully) or other qualified CBT therapist.
