BASES Consultancy Brief: Core SEPAR workshop development and delivery

29th November 2021

The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) is the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK. In 2020, BASES launched the Sport and Exercise Psychology Accreditation Route (SEPAR). The SEPAR is designed to ensure that candidates acquire the knowledge, skills, and experience required to be eligible, on successful completion, to apply for registration with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Practitioner Psychologist. To date, there have been ~100 candidates registered on the SEPAR and there is a sustainable throughput of applicants for the coming years. Whilst the majority of the candidate journey throughout the SEPAR is via practice supervision, there are additional knowledge-based core CPD activities that candidates are required to complete. Following recent feedback, the SEPAR Advisory Group (SEPAR AG) is now keen to enhance the core CPD offering to SEPAR candidates.

BASES is seeking to appoint a consultant to develop the outcomes, learning and resources for an on-line, one-day workshop covering ‘Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity in Sport and Exercise Psychology’, then to deliver this twice a year to all new SEPAR candidates, for an initial period of two years. The consultant will have the relevant skills and experience within the content area and mode of delivery, and will have experience of developing and delivering related material. It is not a requirement that the consultant be a BASES member, nor be registered with the HCPC as a Practitioner Psychologist.

In keeping with the processes employed across the existing core training CPD on the SEPAR, the following are the minimal requirements for delivery:

  • Development of the outcomes, learning and resources of workshop material for an on-line, one-day workshop;
  • Provision of relevant preparatory materials for the workshop;
  • Cross referencing to the SEPAR competency profile;
  • Delivery of two one-day, on-line workshops per year.

For any queries relating to this project, please email the Chair of the SEPAR AG, Prof Richard Thelwell FBASES. Completed tenders should be emailed to by 5 pm on Friday 7 January 2022.
