Many thanks if so

Re: Birmingham AP Group

Did you find one Jack? I'm not aware of anything current.

I have a few APs who would probably be interested in starting something up if not, although they work in the black country.

Re: How long did you stay in first qualified post?

I agree with Ruthie! I have moved around a little; I did 4-6 weeks in my very first post but this was temporary (supposed to be 6 months). I got offered a permanent post before I started that first post so I told them as soon as I could and stayed as long as I could without seriously irritating the ...

Also had a lovely work plan meeting re: my new principal CP post, and looking forward to that, despite the very inherent challenges! 3. I found out 2 weeks ago that...

Re: Mileage Tax Relief - Temporary Workplace Relief for Trai

Hi Ben, do you know how far you can backdate? (2010-2013?) not sure how accurate my mileage records will be but they may be on payslips?

Thanks!

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

Mine's a bit of a mix! I took A level psychology, sociology and english lit, so I was never destined for medicine! At the end I worked out that I was equally "alright" at all of these subjects but wasn't so keen on Sociology (sorry Campino :P) so wanted to take Eng lit and psychology further. Weighi...

Re: Applying for jobs before graduation?

You could definitely apply for healthcare assistant/support worker roles and possibly honorary AP work! I got a few interviews while I was waiting for my classification but that was 6 years ago now and times may have changed. You could try applying for AP posts to fine tune your application form for...

Re: Positive behaviour support

Re: How do you dress for work?
