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

2. Feel the need to buy stationary (this is a common theme when I feel overwhelmed- if the massive to do list is written in a new notebook with a new pen it doesn’t seem quite as bad...) Sorry, but the "Grammar Nazi"/pedant in me just has to point out that this should read stationEry not stationAry...

Re: Any advice on a shorter route?

I think you should consider casting your net a bit wider and applying for jobs other than Assistant Psychologist. You already have some pretty good experience, but what seems lacking is familiarity with the UK health services and supervision from a CP. There are many different roles you can undertak...

Re: Can I make it?

Have your support worker jobs been full time or part time? If part time, you need to work out what their WTE is to see whether they add up to the minimum experience most courses ask for. But that aside, there are a couple of points that I think are worth reiterating. Firstly, it has been pointed out...

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

Hi Best advice, I can give you is to make use of the youtube and resources outside of the university as they can be a bit "behind" the times and keep active in the forums. I would be VERY wary of relying on Youtube! Whilst I would fully support the notion of reading widely and adding to "set texts"...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

"But I guess it depends on the course, and area in terms of whether they struggle to recruit for CPs, I don't know about the regional variation in this" There are certainly areas of the UK that struggle to recruit qualified staff in all disciplines. Whether you live in one of those areas or not I c...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

Direct quote from the Clearing House: International experience It is a good idea to have experience of how services operate in the UK if you are applying for NHS places. (People currently training as clinical psychologists are employed by the NHS. Taken from the "International Students" section of t...

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

I'm sorry Miriam, from what you're saying it looks like that the doctoral programme prefers uk candidates. This information is clearly not stated anywhere, there is no mention at all about the criteria of being familiar with the British culture and NHS, or being British only. Do you have any offici...

Re: Participants wanted - unusual experiences and social learning

Can you please state that your study has ethical approval (and who from) and who your supervisor/s is/are? These things are needed to recruit from this site.

Re: Residential Children’s Care role

Support worker roles are usually a very good starting point for gaining experience, so, yes, this could be an ideal entry level role. But I think it's worth reiterating a couple of things. First of all, don't get caught up in the whole "must have an AP job" rigmerole. AP posts are excellent experien...

Re: Reserve list for places 2019

Anyone else declined a place at Plymouth? I was wondering if the list is moving. I am 11th on the reserve, have I got a chance??? (it seems unrealistic that 11 people will decline!) I asked the admin staff if they could let me know if the list has moved at all, and they are not allowed to. I was th...

Yours is what we call a concise argument. :) Why expend two hundred words when you can say it in two?

Re: Am I doing the right thing ?

I think only you can know if spending the next few years pursuing CP is worth it. There are several threads on the site describing the journey people have taken, so have a browse at them to get feel for whether it's right for you. If you do feel that it is a career you really want and you will enjoy...
