HI Trainee funding cut?

Post by hitraineeperson » Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:30 am

Hi, I just found out I've been accepted on as a HI trainee for the October intake! However, I also heard from a manager that HI training funding will be cut from 2018 onwards, meaning staff will have to self-fund in the future. I've been told this won't affect me as I'm in the 2017 intake. I've tried to find out more about whether this is the case or not but can't see much in the news. Does anyone else know about this happening? If so, it's a darned shame.

I haven't heard anything like that. There's speculation about funding for the DClinPsy courses - might this be what your manager was referring to?

No, they seemed pretty confident it was PWP funding but from speaking to colleagues in other services, no one else has heard this is happening so maybe they misheard? Or it's a rumour?
