Re: Starting a post at band 6 before VIVA and HCPC registration

It isn't that common in my experience (certainly more like 10% than 90%), but it is quite a well-trodden path, and if it was offered verbally then that is part of the contract. Have you had a written job offer? If so, they can't retract that. I'd email the supervisor mentioning what was agreed verba...

Re: Rejected from interview due to references. Thoughts...?

That's pretty normal, Redpanda. And it is a very competitive process in which only the top 15% of people gain a place on a course. I've been doing a fair few "post-mortem" reviews of forms for people with similar frustrations. All I can say from my (perhaps more objective position) is that there is ...

Re: 2019 Doctorate Application Progress thread

I have a profile on Academia.edu; whenever someone Google’s my name I get an alert with their location. This was within a week or so submitting the SJT. At the time, I didn’t think much of it other than that they wanted to verify my publications. I think that is a bit mistaken and misleading. You a...

Re: Rejected from interview due to references. Thoughts...?

Hi Psyfer, My response from Edinburgh was slightly different "Your application was not successful due to your scores on our shortlisting factors not meeting our essential minimum criteria." I am pretty confused by this as surely the essential minimum criteria is a 2:1 and a year's work experience. ...

Re: If you want me to review your application form...

I'm repeating this offer for anyone who wants an application "post mortem" to reflect on why they were not successful at securing interviews this year. But if you did secure interviews and want to attend a personal professional development day to prepare for them I have set up some events next week.

Re: Delivery of trauma training

Just to clarify, what I am suggesting feeding back to the BPS is your experience that their use of endorsements of training can then be misrepresented, not anything about the service (the BPS would have no power to address concerns about the service).

Re: Professional development days 2019

I'm afraid these are likely to be it, as I have a really full calendar of other work commitments competing this year, but I appreciate it is quite far to travel and now quite short notice.

Re: Delivery of trauma training

There is a general concern that I have raised about BPS approved training, and this being misrepresented to provide a greater level of competence than it does, so I would encourage you to contact the BPS about this. As to whether there is sufficient competency to deliver a service, that is probably ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Sorry to hear that Geishawife. I hope things work out with as little pain for your sister in law, and as good a prognosis and/or as much time with loved ones as possible for her. 1.

Re: Assistant Practitioner Vs Assistant Psych

It isn't related to an Assistant Psychologist job, nor does it carry that prestige, but if it is paid more and in the same workplace, take it if you are offered it. You are no worse applying for more psychological jobs from an assistant practitioner position than a support worker position.

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

You've reminded me of someone in my maths class in my final year of secondary school who kept showing off and was so cocky that he was the cleverest person ever and way smarter than me. He bet me £1 he'd beat me by a grade or more, and kept going on and on about it. Until the point he got a D and I...
