Jennie, the Founder of ALIED, qualified from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and is an established Chartered Physiotherapist with some 40 years experience in both the NHS and private practice.
Jennie gained a BSc in Psychology in 1997, an MSc in Acupuncture in 2003, and she was made a Fellow of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy [FCSP] in 2009. She was Chair of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists [AACP] from 2004 to 2009.
Jennie is committed to the use of Acupuncture in Physiotherapy, and the educational development within ALIED in order to maintain high standards for the benefit of the Physiotherapy profession.
Jennie provides a standard of postgraduate education to postgraduate Physiotherapists that meets with University of Hertfordshire [UH] CSP, and Health Care Professions Council [HCPC] requirements. She also provides a mentoring service for Practitioners undertaking Acupuncture training.
The Government's recent decision not to introduce statutory regulation [SR] of Acupuncture has a significant effect on Physiotherapists who wish to use Acupuncture within their clinical practice.
It has also caused tutors at ALIED, along with many other experienced Physiotherapist Acupuncture Tutors, to reappraise our affiliations.
The ALIED Foundation Acupuncture Course is M-Level Accredited to the University of Hertfordshire [UH]and the ALIED Principal, Jennie Longbottom, is a member of the University Staff.
Registration with UH is an option for Foundation Course Students and an outline of the M-Level Accreditation Process is available for students.
