Accreditation Officer Vacancy

The BAAB is an independent, highly regarded accreditation body which works closely with the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). Accreditation Officers play a key role in supporting individual institutions in their ongoing educational development, and in providing the profession and the general public with confidence in the standards of new entrants to the BAcC.

This interesting and rewarding role enables you to work from home, supported by a small team, under the guidance of the Lead Accreditation Officer. You will support up to 6 named teaching institutions and contribute to their continuing development, as well as contributing more generally to the work of the Board. The person appointed will have extensive experience of higher education, and ideally some experience of Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

BAAB Strategic Plan 2017-19

The City College of Acupuncture’s 3 year, full-time and part-time Professional Licentiate in Acupuncture (Lic.Ac) achieved full accreditation (subject to periodic major review) at the July Board meeting.
The visiting panel commended the course for ten areas of effective practice:
1. Strong business and management support from The City College.
2. The confidence of final year students in theory and clinical skills.
3. The provision of a graduate clinic to support transition into practice.
4. A strong and committed teaching team.
5. The long term vision for the growth of the acupuncture programme and clinic.
6. Design of the curriculum with clear learning outcomes and relevant assessment strategy, and modules which link together helping students progress towards an understanding of complexity.
7. The level of support offered to students from their first contact with the College.
8. Free access for teachers to achieve an in-house BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
9. A well designed clinic facility with flexibility for a variety of teaching situations.
10. Use of a guest examiner in final year examination to bring in elements of externality.
