Hi all!

I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me bit of info on the Surrey course because I'm thinking of applying? Are there any trainees on it at the moment or who have gone through it? i suppose what I want to know is if there is good support in place and just generally what the team is like.

Thanks in advance :D

Have you had a look at the alternative handbook yet? There's some information about course support and so on (:

Hi, I'm a current trainee on the course. My experience of the team is that they are supportive. The course has recently moved to be more systemic oriented and are seeking to get systemic accreditation at introductary level embedded within the course. Having said that, the course does teach a range of other therapeutic models. There are a range of support on the course. These include being paired with a buddy from the year above, being paired with a clinical tutor on the course, being paired with a mentor who is independent from the uni and the trust that employs you, there's personal and professional development groups, and the other trainee's on the course. I imagine many of these support will be similar on other courses. Something to add is that we get 2 hrs of weekly supervision on placement, which I'm not sure how typical this is of other courses. Hope this helps, but feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.
