Re: How long it takes for the NHS to send conditional offer

After a verbal offer, the person who recruited you normally informs HR, and they then send you something in writing plus forms to complete for occupational health and DBS checks. I imagine lots of Trusts send everything electronically now (my last post did), so check your email and junk folder. Bear...

Re: Technology/Apps etc whilst training

I'd probably hold off purchasing any referencing software before you start training. Some courses might have recommended software they suggest/require you to use (my course permits nothing but EndNote referencing for submitted work!). You can also often get software free or heavily discounted throug...

Re: comparing PWP and DClinPsy training courses

I did PWP training in 2009 and am now a trainee CP. Much depends on other variables, as you are aware, but here are some thoughts on how I would compare the two... Similarities: * Working part-time + learning part-time= full time commitment. * Limited allocated study time, so assignments often have ...

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

1. Have seriously neglected clinpsy lately. Sincere apologies, I'm a bad fledgling for not returning to visit the nest :oops: 2. Missed the news about baby-Ell- congratulations!! 3. Saw my first client as a solo trainee today! Think it went ok, but not looking forward to listening to the recording.....

Re: Doubts on references

Yup I did the same last year. I'd only been in my job since Sept so asked my previous supervisor for a reference and just explained in the additional info section that my current employer wasn't able to comment fully on the questions as I'd only been in post a short time. Courses can always request ...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

I think Bubbly is referring to the relevant experience (work history) section, not the statement about how their experience has made them a better candidate...? Bubbly, I don't see why you need to omit any of the jobs- I imagine most applicants will have had a number of short term and voluntary post...

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

1. Just finished a day of teaching on one of my favourite topics. Delivered by an international expert on said topic. Who happens to be my course director. And...I was being paid to be there! Loving this :D . 2. Moved my flat around this evening so I have somewhere proper to work- feels much better....

Re: OMG - dangerous change to CRB rules?

This is very concerning and I too would be happy to sign a petition if one is started. Admin staff, cleaners etc., have access to huge amounts of very sensitive information. Where would e.g. research staff fall, who are not 'providing care' but might be alone conducting interviews with vulnerable pe...

If this sets the precedent for all course birthdays, there will be much cake to be scoffed over the next three years :) . 3. Already so much work to do. Must not freak out! :pale...

Re: PWP supervising Trainee PWP?

Just because they are a PWP it doesn't mean they haven't received training in supervision...do you know for sure this is the case? If so, then I would definitely raise your concern, for their sake as much as yours. It is quite common now for PWPs to be supervised by more experience PWPs- they are us...

Re: Publication/dissemination section of application

I'm a bit confused as to how involved one has to be in a project to write under this heading - if I had been involved in data collection for a large scale trial but had no involvement with anything beyond this this wouldn't be appropriate to put in this section? Data collection does not count as di...

Re: HCA question

When I worked as a support worker it was definitely casual jeans/t-shirt kind of wear, but then this was a community setting... My rule in any new job if I'm not sure is to go for something in the middle- smartish trousers and flat shoes (not jeans/trainers), and a sweater/cardy (not a suit jacket!)...
