UK Registered Learning Provider: UKRLP (NHC is a UK Registered Learning Provider (UK-RLP; No. 10093762)
The UK Register of Learning Providers is a ‘one-stop’ portal to be used by government departments, agencies, learners, and employers to share key information about learning providers. The UKRLP allows providers to update their information in only one place and share this across agencies such as, the Learning and Skills Council, the Careers Advice Service, the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and UCAS. Since provider registration opened on 1st August 2005, the UKRLP has grown to over 20,000 providers. Each of these has been verified against a recognised external source and has been allocated a UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN). This is the unique identifier used to share information with the UKRLP partner agencies.

About British Board of Art Therapy - BBAT

Our members work together to help develop and shape the art therapy profession and help support each other in professional development.


What we do?

We are the professional board for art therapists in the UK. We work to promote art therapy and provide professional support and advice to our members. We represent art therapy to commissioners, policy-makers and opinion-formers and work to ensure that the wider public understands what art therapy is and how it can help transform lives.


Our vision is of a society where the arts and arts therapies are recognised as an essential and integral part of supporting and improving wellbeing and mental health; a society where art therapy is accessible and widely available in health and social care, educational and other settings, in order to help people to achieve good mental health and reach their full potential.

I had so much benefit… real lasting benefits that I’ve been able to carry on with on my own, like a new way of doing things and different methods of coping. I think I got more from it than I ever thought possible.
