Re: Staffordshire - Screening for 2020 intake

Anyone have any idea what the test will entail? We have been given very little information. Any help would be massively appreciated! If you've been given very little information, then that is the same for all candidates. Asking for (or providing) insider information is against our forum rules. I ap...

I have counselling to fall back on so I do have relevant experience to psychology directly
I don't know why you are under this misapprehension, but counselling is not psychology.

Re: Trent Selection Test

If you've been given very little information, then that is the same for all candidates. Asking for (or providing) insider information is against our forum rules. And given that many course staff read our forum, it is quite possible that they will see these attempts to circumvent the fair selection p...

Re: Clinical psychology on Shortage Occupation List

It might be a positive thing for the profession if more CPs from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA with doctoral level training are able to move here and take up employment, and less from Europe where the standards are more variable.

Re: Participants required for an online study

There are two oddly worded questions in this about how long you have used drugs for, as they are phrased to assume if you have ever used drugs you are currently using drugs. I had to assume that it meant the duration for which you did use them in your life (eg if you smoked cannabis for a few months...

Re: UCL PWP Interview(Feb Intakes)

The reason you haven't received any responses is because it is against the rules of the forum to solicit or provide inside information about any interview process. Finding out what questions are asked is a form of cheating. If it isn't in the public domain, then the course/employer don't want it to ...

Hi? What questions were you asked? If you don’t mind me asking.
Well said Alex. We don't much like people trying to use our forum to cheat, especially as their only post.

Re: Edinburgh CAAP 2020

Any advice on interview or what they seemed to focus on this year would be greatly appreciated! That's an attempt to cheat, right? You know that soliciting (or providing) information about interviews is prohibited on the forum? I'm guessing the course won't be too impressed to read that either, esp...

Offer to do some presentations or teaching sessions, to medical students, undergrads at a local university, or to talk about career options at sixth forms?

Re: Postgraduate or experience?

This sounds like you don't really know the basics about the career path, so you might want to read the wiki and some of the pinned threads. There is no compulsory components of the experience you need to gain - you just need to show you can think like a psychologist, with reflective scientist practi...

Re: Clinical Audit assistance

You can talk about it with your supervisor, who will tell you what they want doing. You don't need to go in as an expert. But it is reasonable to know what defines an audit - particularly given we have definitions on this site.

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I feel like Lancaster is the most inclusive of courses - in terms of their minimum criteria so that doesn't surprise me. I know you are very inclusive in terms of experience and academic grades, I just thought that all courses got a share of the applicants that don't meet the requirements for train...

Re: Questions about PWP

I completed a year working essentially as an honorary assistant psychologist (but can't call it that because I didn't have as much direct clinical contact) in an inpatient CAMHS unit. Just to be a pedant, but an AP post is not defined by the level of clinical contact. It is defined by the job title...

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I suspect that figure will vary significantly based on the specific programme. Our rate would be under 1% for example. You think less than 1% of applicants don't have GBC? Or don't have right to live and work in the UK? Or don't have completed qualifications to the standard required? I'd be very su...
