We are pleased to announce that UK-SBA (the UK Society for Behaviour Analysts) register has been accredited under the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Registers programme.
The Professional Standards Authority (PSA) is an independent statutory body, accountable to Parliament. It oversees regulators such as the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and General Medical Council (GMC) and accredits the registers of organisations such as the British Psychological Society and The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.
UK-SBA Registrants working in health and social care will be able to display the Accredited Register Quality Mark, a clear sign that they belong to a register which meets the PSA’s demanding standards.
This accreditation provides additional peace of mind to anyone looking for a behaviour analytic practitioner as it demonstrates that the UK-SBA’s register meets the Authority’s high standards in governance, standard-setting, education and training, management of the register, complaints handling and information. The PSA’s goal is to protect the public by improving the regulation and registration of people who work in health and social care.
Dr Marguerite Hoerger, President of the UK-SBA, said: “We’re proud to be accredited by the PSA – their Quality Mark is a clear sign that practitioners on the UK-SBA register have met our standards.”
