Fixed term contract and maternity

Hi, Does anyone know what happens if you get pregnant while on a one year fixed term iapt contract? I'm not currently pregnant but I am considering it as it seems like a good timing - apart from the fixed term contract that is. Would they be obliged to extend it? Or would they just keep paying mater...

Re: Next intake for UCL PWP course?

Hi, I believe it will be on the website when it's time for the next intake - applications for the September one opened at some point in May when I was applying a couple of years ago. I can't imagine UCL stopping the PWP training but there must be an email for enquiries. UCL posts will not be on the ...

Re: Private CBT training - what do I need to know?

I completed my PGDip privately, in Oxford. I was working in a talking therapies service as a PWP at the time, and was allowed to see high intensity clients as a trainee, so was paid still as part of my current role. I know some people on my cohort were lucky enough to have a similar arrangement, al...

Re: Private CBT training - what do I need to know?

Hi hawke, Thank you for your response, that's helpful! I was thinking the roles are unpaid, I have heard it from others and it doesn't sound like paid placements are available for privately funded courses. I didn't know getting an NHS role could be a problem, definitely something to look into! I'll ...

Private CBT training - what do I need to know?

Hi,

I'm a PWP looking to complete CBT training privately.
I'm looking for some information regarding the placements. Are they paid/unpaid? Can I change services half-way through the training?
Any information basically will be helpful :)

Re: Facilitator intervention jobs

Thank you, this is helpful. I don't know about the other roles people are referring to but the one I found is through NOMS, high security male prison. Job description barely says anything, only that there will be group or 1-2-1 interventions. I emailed to ask for more information but HR replied sayi...

Re: Facilitator intervention jobs

Hi, I would also like to ask for some information on this role. Does anyone know what kind of interventions would the post holder be facilitating? It sounds as though it is around addiction treatment? And are they formal treatment interventions? And also, as the job does not require a qualification ...

Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

Thank you both, this is very helpful! This is my anxiety speaking, but I have to ask: obviously I will wait until all work is signed off supervisor but there are assignments still due end of June (that is when clinical logs etc are due too). So realistically I can go to another service in July but w...

Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

I would like to ask the same question. I am in the same situation and would really like to know! I would like to move to a different city and obviously have to go to another service as well. As far as I know, some(if not all?) services are happy to hire pwp's who have not received their qualificatio...

Re: London Trainee PWP - problem with experience or applicat

First of all, sorry to hear you were unsuccessful. But please do not let that disappoint you! This intake is a lot smaller and this isn't a reflection of your unsuitability for the course! Regarding experience, it sounds like you already have a few things under your belt. There are a couple of peopl...

Re: Leaving IAPT before completing PWP training?

OK, so you're a few months in as opposed to a few weeks, so that's good! Certain iapt services, like the one I'm in, is a lot less typical of pure iapt. All our work is face to face, unless someone wants a phone appointment, and we have upto 45 minutes at step 2, and I only do 1 workshop a week, an...

Re: Leaving IAPT before completing PWP training?

I know of a fee people who dropped out of the course in the first few weeks, however I'm not sure of the circumstances around this. How far into it are you, and what parts of the role are you struggling with/not enjoying? Personally, as it's less than a year's course, I would stick it out, just so ...
