This paper examined the opportunities as well as challenges in relation to the use of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The opportunities include the increased range of mental health conditions and other disorders where CBT (in isolation or with other interventions) could be effective to address them, as well as policies around workforce education and training that support the expansion of psychological therapies, particularly CBT services. The challenges include the urgent need of heightened awareness among the wider platform of health and social care workers about CBT principles, structure, framework, methods of delivery, wider applications, evaluation and appropriate referral of clients, and stepped model of care. In response to such needs, the paper described CBT awareness educational award at the University of Gloucestershire, UK: the Certificate of Professional Studies in Awareness of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies Practice delivered at Level III and M level. The challenges associated with the initiation and running of such educational programmes are highlighted, as well as suggestions for the way forward considering the learners', employers' and educational providers' perspectives.
