What is TAPACY?

TAPACY stands forTransactional Analysis Proficiency Award for Children and Young People (TAPACY).

TAPACY aims is to teach transactional analysis (TA) concepts as tools that youngsters can use to increase their self-esteem and social skills.

TAPACY has been designed specifically for children and young people who have learned and applied various TA concepts. This involves producing portfolios of evidence (which will be completed over the course of 7 workshops) and undertaking a process of peer and adult assessment.

TAPACY principles are as follows (words courtesy of the Institute of Developmental Transactional Analysis).

The assessment and accreditation of the TAPA is underpinned by a series of core assumptions: 

  • All people are OK as human beings. 
  • People have an urge to grow and develop themselves. 
  • We make decisions and are therefore responsible for our behaviour. We can influence others and invite certain responses but they decide how to react. 
  • TA is practised as part of a contractual arrangement – in other words students are expected to use the theory to understand themselves better, and to work in partnership with the teacher or educator towards a mutually agreed outcome.  Individuals develop in different ways and have different preferences for demonstrating their potential. 
  • Development takes place within a context that is permission giving and promotes diversity and inclusion so that individual potential can be realised. 

The TAPACY award is being taught by Talent Within You’s founder, Vicky Vaughan FCIM FInstLM, on a voluntary basis. Vicky is a qualified Coach and Mentor (ILM L7) and is currently working towards an MSc in Transactional Analysis. Vicky is continually supervised and assessed on her TA teaching skills. Vicky will be blending TAPACY with her expertise as a Chartered Marketer and will be helping children to create their own personal brand focused on their niche. Vicky is also an associate lecturer in marketing and digital marketing at Chichester College.
