Re: The Struggle in IAPT

Hi Dragonfly123, Following on from the previous post, you are definitely not alone! I felt this way when I was a pwp. I recently got onto hi intensity training after 2.5 years as a pwp. I struggled at various points during my time as a pwp. I felt at times unsupported and overworked too. Hang in the...

Re: High Intensity trainee post TAX free?

Hi Dragonfly123

I found out I am unable to complete the course tax free as I work for a private company. It's only if you will be working for the NHS as far as I know. I completed my PWP training May 2015 :) so I started May 2014.

High Intensity trainee post TAX free?

Hi all, I have been offered a high intensity training position, however, I was wondering if this course/role is tax free? I recently put in a WATS claim from when I did my PWP course and received a pretty big rebate back from my previous trust. However, I wanted to double check if this is the case w...

Re: Assistant Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner - thought

As someone else said in an earlier post, it is pretty much the same as Trainee PWP but without attending university. I had experience for 6 months in 2013 as an Assistant PWP. I was pretty much thrown in at the deep end, so were the others. I initially completed assessments and did reception type du...

Re: WATS refund

I contacted HR in my previous service I did my PWP training and I'm due a refund for national insurance contributions and tax apparently. They didn't have my correct address, so I should have received this cheque by now! I worked for SABP in Walton on Thames, so if you need a contact for HR please m...

Re: WATS refund

Same here (as above).

I trained in 2014-2015 as a PWP. Would I be eligible for a refund do you think? Was either of you successful in getting one?

Many thanks :)

Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

I second PanGirl1984. I applied for qualified positions whilst still a trainee. I had to work as a trainee until my results came through. As I received some information to say I'd passed the course, the service I was working for needed proper proof from the university. I had to contact them and they...
