Oops...a follow up question!

Does anyone know if the application is the generic application form on NHS jobs website or if it is a different form?

Again...thanks.

Hey Qwerty,

The PWP posts for London are usually advertised on the NHS jobs site around May/June time. They use the same form as usual, but you may have to write certain things in the personal statement section such as your preferences of where you would like to train.

Good luck!

I have seen a PWP trainee position advertised where you attend an " intensive version of the Postgraduate Certificate in Low Intensity Interventions ". It is a four month course. Does anyone know how this compares to the regular trainee positions?

^I've applied for that but found it a little bit strange myself...
I always thought that the regular courses can take up to a year and you attend training part-time once or twice a week while also working part-time using your new skills while you learn them. I think that there is a wiki about this but I'll have to check again as it's been a while since I looked into that section of the forum! If it is there I'm sure that it will answer most our questions.

I think what's good about this is that the advert states that you still get paid for your training and once you qualify you're still eligible to apply for band 5 posts. Doing the intensive version of the course would mean that you would qualify quicker, right?
What's also good is that they are looking to appoint 20 trainees so I guess that increases people's chances although I don't believe that I will get on myself as I haven't got as much experience as other people. Still there's no harm in applying i guess :).

Good luck to you if you applied!

Hi

I applied for the intensive London PWP positions too.
Saw it closed early on the 10th. Was wondering if anyone had heard anything yet? :)

I had a look at the IAPT trainee post that offers an intensive training. If I remembered correctly, it was from a North east london trust (?), and once qualified you will only be able to work for that trust.

It seems that the London recruitment for PWP's starting this autumn is not going through NHS jobs.

Apply direct to UCL: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-studen ... ppsyslcb01

Closes on the 27th of May.

Good luck!

Hello,

I have been looking through the handbook for the London trainee PWP posts. Am I right in thinking that the salary is £18,838 + Inner/Outer/Fringe London Weighting, depending on where you are based?

Qwerty.
