Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Surrey Southampton RHUL Oxford Third time applying, and my first ever interview. Really surprised as I felt the interview hadn't gone well. My interview panel looked thoroughly bored. I feel that I can now relax after 6 years of trying to get relevant experience, working for free and doing jobs I h...

Re: Surrey Request for Feedback on Interview Process

I was told in my interview that I would hear by the 29th by letter :shock: :? Maybe they don't even know! I was under the impression that the reason they are not letting people know as quickly as in previous years is that they are in a position this year to give more individual feedback? I thought ...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Anyone else practically jump out of their skin on receiving an email from Surrey today? Turned out just to be interview feedback questionnaires :roll: Yes!

Re: IAPT or Assistant Psychologist route?

This thread has been very enlightening, and helpful in terms of what to expect if I do go into IAPT after graduation. Basically, I am studying psychology after two years of thought and a career change (and huge drop in pay to come...). I could go into business and earn more after graduation, but I ...

Re: IAPT or Assistant Psychologist route?

I also gained a SPWP post less than 2 years after qualifying. I was supervising trainees after just 7 months (with the supervisor training). One of the advantages of a working life that makes half the staff want to leave is that you're soon one of the most experienced around ;) What is it about the...

Re: IAPT or Assistant Psychologist route?

So I assume a great deal of luck would be involved in getting such a post in a short time? As I assume there'd be many others wanting it? Hiya, I was in a good position of having been qualified a year and a half when a post came up in the service I worked for. It was obviously good timing, but at t...

Re: IAPT or Assistant Psychologist route?

Just wanted to add some of my reflections to this post, to help anybody reading it in the future. I worked in IAPT through from being a trainee, to a qualified, to a senior over the course of 3 years. I then left and have been working in an NHS assistant psychologist post for a few months (first AP ...
