You can find the very latest acupuncturist jobs and vacancies right here, so take a look below at the latest opportunities. Acupuncturists practice an ancient Chinese medicine whose roots go back over 3000 years. Practitioners believe that life energy (chi) flows along invisible channels in the body known as meridians. Acupuncturists insert very fine stainless steel needles into these channels to regulate their patients' healing process and help restore health.
This is a well-regulated field, with a clear path of training and certification. For acupuncturist jobs you will need a minimum of five GCSEs, though some colleges require at least two A levels, including at least one science subject.
Late entry to courses is common, with mature applicants welcome. Many indeed have training or experience in medically related areas, which may allow them to be accepted without the usual academic qualifications. Those with recognized medical qualifications may also be exempt from parts of the exam.
All training is monitored by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board, a part of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). Recognized courses include bio-medical training, and extensive clinical and supervised practical work. They typically last at least three years full-time, or the part-time equivalent.
The BAcC has information on colleges and universities which offer courses leading to professional membership. Successful graduates carry the letters MBAcC after their name.
