Basically, the academic part was by a relevant college course. At the time
degrees in computing were new and many of us came in from other disciplines.
(I trained as a mathematician. I believe my boss, a much better computer
scientist than I could ever pretend to be, trained in foreign languages.)

The practical had to be under a Fellow. I can't say anything useful about
this as I was "grandfathered" and didn't train anybody before I came to
Canada, where British Computer Society qualifications were, at the time, of
only academic interest.
