The University of Exeter’s CEDAR department runs a number of CYP IAPT training courses in collaboration with services that are members of the South West Community of Practice. A number of these courses are available both for staff who already work in children’s mental health services, or for those who are ‘Recruit to Train’ – meaning they are employed by services to train and work for them at the same time. Find out more about the different courses we offer below.

Courses for qualified practitioners

The University of Exeter CEDAR department provides a number of CYP IAPT courses for existing staff already working within children’s mental health services. Funding will vary for these courses and at times may need to be supplemented by your service, so always talk to your manager before putting yourself forward for one of these courses. As well as the CYP IAPT postgraduate diplomas and certificates which are available to both existing staff and recruit to train candidates, courses on the following are also offered. (Please note that viability of these courses each year depends on funding so do get in touch with us to check whether the course will be running.)
