Time off NHS job for DClin interviews

I have had a search of the forum but cant find a specific answer, I was wondering if NHS employers generally (either by policy or managers discretion) allow time off for DClin interviews? I have an interview that requires me to travel and stay over night due to the distance of the course centre- but...

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

Has anybody accessed the practice tests for this through the CEB website yet? I had to register and do a short questionnaire regarding demographics. It then took me to a page which invited me to start my evaluation; however there was no mention of a practice test here and it looked very formal. I j...

Re: Verbal and numerical reasoning tests

I haven't had any luck getting onto the test page today either. I appreciate their advice about getting it completed earlier than the deadline date, but surely they should be able to run the website with enough power for the server not to go down completely like this the day before. What time is the...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

JSV1990 and Endedupageek, how did you find out from Plymouth? Did they call? I am impatiently waiting and have only received a silly email from them about the verification tests! Starting to think the worst now as its so late in the day.

'second job tax' if two part time posts in same trust?

Does anyone know whether I would get taxed at the higher rate if I changed from one full time post to two part time posts in the same trust? I know that in regular employment laws you get taxed at a higher rate on any additional jobs on top of your original one, but I am not sure how that would appl...

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

1. My neck hurts. Really hurts. I wonder if I can justify having a massage so soon after the expense of Christmas? 2. I cant believe that out of a full day of appointments, most of them have cancelled. There is only so much admin you can fill the time with. 3. In between the rain, it really is a bea...

comparing PWP and DClinPsy training courses

Hi all, I have recently completed my PWP training course which I have enjoyed, but found rather stressful trying to juggle everything, in particular the fact that my training was a good 120 miles away from my base so i was staying away from home 2 nights every other week and had a severe lack of rou...

Re: Can't find submit button, all sections ticked off??

Maybe its the final test of our intelligence and/ or ability to keep our cool in stressful situations! Only those who can calmly bring themselves to log out at the last minute win the prize of finding the SUBMIT button... just a theory :roll:

Where IS the submit button?

Im also having problems with mine, I have managed to add two documents but trying to upload a third one and there are simply no buttons on there now to allow me to upload/ post any further documents. Doesn't make any sense?!

Re: Trainee Therapeutic Parent or Support Worker

I just want to add, I had a support worker position for two years which was largely based in the community with some supported living work mixed in, and I found that I learnt so much more from working in the community as I had to act on my feet, deal with an awful lot in terms of complex cases, and ...
