Will this be reposted for this years entry? :)
We put up the progress thread on the first day people hear back from a course about interviews. Assessment tests are given to most applicants, so we have never tracked being invited to those.

Re: Emma Kenny, Jo Hemmings and concerns re "Celebrity psychologists"

However, to give them their due credit, ITV are currently recruiting for a HCPC Practitioner Psychologist to oversee risk and care issues. https://www.jobsinpsychology.co.uk/jobs/psychologist-15 Wow, that's a difficult post to take on. And they want a freelancer and give no pay scale. Plus a bit st...

Re: Professional development days 2020

We are ready to go ahead with bookings for 25th February and 5th March at Matlock. There is free parking on site and just outside on the road, but please do try to car-share where possible as I know it is a difficult location for people who don't drive. Please email emma@lifepsychol.co.uk to book yo...

Re: Professional development days 2020

We normally do 9:30am until 5pm, though some people stay later to get one-to-one feedback at the end. I am trying to confirm venue and date for Matlock, then I'll get the booking details up.

Re: Professional development days 2019/2020

If you think there would be a group of 12-16 people interested in Bristol as a venue, I'm happy to look for a date, provided it covers my expenses and raises enough for the charity to justify my time.

Re: Professional development days 2019/2020

We've been able to secure a low cost room in Matlock for 25th Feb and 5th March. So let me know if you are interested, and I'll put up some booking details on Monday.

Re: Professional development days 2019/2020

It looks like I can potentially get a venue in Matlock/Tansley for 25th Feb or 3rd March to do a day with a cost of £36 per head, and I can potentially get the venue in Holburn in London on 5th March, but the cost of the day would be £56 there. But we'd need to know that we'd get 15 people for each ...

Re: Volunteering abroad Post qualification

Apologies, I wasn’t meaning to contradict your experience. Only to say I’d read on their website a specific note that they don’t set up international volunteering routinely. But it does remind me of our wider conversations about voluntourism and the fact that there are many great projects within the...

Re: Professional development days 2019/2020

I've really struggled to get suitable venues at a cost that isn't prohibitive for either location. I can't get two consecutive days in London, which means that the whole of the train fare and hotel costs would have to load on a single day, pushing up the price beyond what I'd like to charge or meani...

Re: Volunteering abroad Post qualification

Freedom from torture specifically say they only take office volunteers in the UK, and use local staff to implement their international work. But a conversation with MSF or colleagues from abroad might yield some helpful connections. I know two of the CAMHS psychiatrists I knew in Northamptonshire we...

Re: Qualified in psychology abroad and want to work in the UK?

Is it possible to update this information in light of the addition of psychologists to the "shortage list" for Tier 2 visas last Fall? If you want to add something, feel free to write it. The website is only the sum of its volunteers, not an official resource that has external funding or represents...

Re: Publishing for the very first time

Dear Miriam, Thank you so much for the advice. I see what you mean, and do admit that it might be very ambitious of me to do this on my own. However, I just have no ideia where to find psychologists who would accept me as a volunteer :/ As I said, you should contact psychologists working in local u...
