Membership Criteria for O.D. Consultant
UKAHPP is an equal opportunities organisation. If the procedure for applying for membership is not appropriate to your situation, please let our Administrator know so that we can respond appropriately.
Criteria for Full Membership and Accreditation:
1. Orientation. This must be humanistic, as would normally be
the case. There must be some
2. Training. This may be by apprenticeship within a consultancy organisation in this field: in this case it has to be demonstrated that O. D. projects have been carried out. OR ft may be through an MA or MSc or PhD, preferably in a suitable management field. Anything in this section should include some hands-on work in the field, and not be restricted to organising the activities of other people; but this hands-on part of the work need not be the majority.
3. Experience. If a suitable degree has been obtained, 5 years' experience in the OD field is sufficient, and this need not have been continuous. If no such degree has been obtained, 10 years' experience must be demonstrated, which need not have been continuous.
4. Supervision. If a degree has been obtained, it will be assumed that the work has been done under supervision. If no degree has been obtained, this must be demonstrated. Where humanistic styles of work have been undertaken, it must be demonstrated that some form of supervision or support group has been set up. The point is that humanistic consultancy is more emotionally demanding than other kinds, and that this has to be recognised in some way.
5. Confirmation. There must be some evidence that the applicant is at present acting as an OD Consultant. Suitable evidence may be the word of 2 colleagues. These can be supervisors, members of support groups, co-consultants or other people involved in some way. They should not be people in the pay of the applicant or subordinate to the applicant, or students of the applicant.
6. General. All statements in every section should be supported
by some form of evidence.
7. Equal opportunities. Applicants may present a case for their acceptance in whatever form they find appropriate. This is for people with disabilities for whom other methods of application would be inappropriate. With this exception:
all applications must be made by the application forms which are obtainable from:
