Re: maternity leave discrimination?

Are there other benefits to taking it? I suppose having acted up will stand you well when applying for substantive posts. Is it competitive? if, as must be tempting, you decline, will they easily fill the post anyway? Personally I think it's a petty scam and you should decline to do band 8 work and ...

Re: Objective advice sought

There's no dilemma here if you want to do a dclinpsy. One masters is totally relevant and improves your chances. The other is barely relevant, possibly even slightly harmful to your chances. I expect the selectors for the anatomy masters would be equally bewildered if you told them you intend to do ...

Re: What are your values?

Do a value clarification exercise. Reflect on the choices you have made in life and try to unearth the values that underpin those choices. You could complete the VIA Survey of Character Strengths - https://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/testcenter and refelct on the results. I agree with hawke...

Re: Living abroad

It's not primarily about nationality, it's about being 'ordinarily resident' and 'settled' according to specific legal definitions for immigration purposes. The fact that you've moved within the EEA is important in that EEA and UK citizens should be treated the same (at the present time) for establi...

Re: Let's talk about money

I know it is a side issue to the thread but I am confused about the idea that research assistants require a PhD. Could it be a confusion between assistants and research associates?

Re: European citizens

Places and funding for each cohort are agreed and allocated by the Health Education Regions for the three years, not on a continuing year by year basis. It would be impossible to run any course if funding was in doubt each year. Trainees are given a three year contract. The guarantee linked to by cl...

Re: Interventions Facilitator HMPPS Interview

I don't know much about this but would guess one aspect to consider is about carrots and sticks.

That is to say mandatory attendance is a stick forcing people to go. The carrots are the positive factors, probably many are the same as for other groups or treatment more generally.

I don't understand why you switched to a spouse visa. Wouldn't you be in a better position if you hadn't?

Re: Private sector and negotiating pay

Calculate your value to them (eg billable hours a year, work brought in, etc) minus the overheads and costs and any value they add to you, and bear this figure in mind when negotiating.

Re: Your advice about my career - strange situation

Isn't the most sensible thing to do to apply for recognition via the reciprocal arrangements? That is using the European union (recognition of professional qualifications) regulations 2015, SI 2015/2059. Maybe the European federation of psychologists http://www.efpa.eu or http://www.europsy-efpa.eu ...
