Re: Reference concern

Ah thank you so much for clearing that up for me!

Jet lag + hastily scrambling around the clearing house website was not much fun!

Reference concern

Hi everyone, I wondered if anyone could shred some light on a query I have as I'm new to the application process this year! I had contacted my experience and academic referees a few months ago and both agreed however after being out of the country for a few weeks I have come home to realise that my ...

Re: Knew you wanted to be a CP from a young age? How?

When I was younger I had a friend with Asperger’s syndrome. I remember I never really understood what Asperger’s was and he rarely spoke about it. When I was in my early teens I remember googling it and read quite a lot into it - it definitely felt like a eureka moment as I was reading along thinkin...

Re: Pre-training experience in Australia?

Thank you vellen and miriam, that's very useful to know! I am still considering it as I would very much enjoy the break away whilst working out there!

I have since applied for more jobs and had another AP interview here but still no luck :(

Pre-training experience in Australia?

Hi all, I've searched the forum for topics discussing psychology roles in Australia and have found a lot of useful information (thank you)! However I would still like to ask for some slightly more specific (and well needed) advice... I'm toying with the idea of going over to Australia for 12 months ...

Re: Applying for 2015

Thank you Gilly and Enid! I will definitely complete the form regardless then. I'm also lucky in the sense that my supervisor will most likely give me some really detailed feedback on my answers (which would most likely reveal whether it's worth sending off!). Also, as I'm due to be leaving in Janua...

Re: Applying for 2015

I feel as though I have some good experience however not near enough to feel confident about applying! I'm contemplating applying this year as a kind of 'practice' go? Perhaps to familiarise myself with the application process and to maybe help me reflect on what I need to try and do this year to pr...

Re: Brain injury rehab trust AP interview

I would also have some basic knowledge of brain injury i.e. traumatic/non-traumatic and the difficulties an individual may face following a brain injury. How you would communicate and engage with an individual with cognitive limitations/difficulties communicating following a BI? Also be aware of po...

Re: Stuck in an interview rut

Thank you Mikel. I definitely think you are right! I have another interview next week and I'm really going to try and relax and just focus on them getting to know me a little!

Congratulations on qualifying :)

Thank you! I think I needed to hear that because I have tended to make that mistake before.

Re: Stuck in an interview rut

This sounds exactly like me! I am confident when I am writing my application form/ doing written tests but I just seem to lose my thoughts during interviews. Similarly to yourself, I think the reason is that I place SO much importance on every interview I get and I literally spend hours and hours pr...

I generally think that the term "Therapy Technical Instructor" is one of the most bizarre job titles! :lol:

Re: Shortlisting Updates

I am also awaiting a response from the Walsall Community Recovery post. The closing date was the 16/06 so it's been a month now! Have you got any further information? I've e-mailed them today so fingers crossed I will hear something soon! I emailed them last week and they said that they were still ...

Re: Shortlisting Updates

Does anyone know if either of the AP posts at St Andrews in Birmingham or Northampton have been shortlisted? Also whether the AP for NHS Walsall Community Recovery has been shortlisted? Is this the Northampton one with the closing date of 5th June? Yes it could be! I can't remember exactly but it w...
