Re: Life as a trainee.. What's it like??

I really like being a trainee :D

There is obviously work, but a lot of my friends in other professions work just as hard (esp the teachers!!)

Good luck xx

Hey missm, last year the Liverpool letters (I think it was email actually) came around the 2/3 March. They seem to be quite late even though they are the first course to interview.

they have started shortlisting already though.......

Best of luck

got my liverpool email on the 2nd March, two weeks before they started interviewing. Think I got UCL on the same date, UEL a couple of days later and Holloway was on or near to the deadline

hope that helps, good luck everyone!

What you have suggested would be fine.

Almost everyone on my course turned up in jeans the first day, some more casual than others!!

hiya, I get a forensic lead in my job which is basically due to the higher (perceived) risk in this type of work (let´s not get into a discussion about the risks involved in PIU´s/community etc)

Hows about if you have adapted/developed an intervention to be used in a group setting? Esp if you have used outcome measures pre & post intervention and then gone on to refine the programme and run the group again.....

Not sure if that is any help, good luck

Hiya Firstly, I have got on a course this year with (only!) neuro and forensic posts so I wouldn't worry too much about that. Also I had interviews last year with only neuro experience.

That sounds great! Which mountain? My mum and dad renewed their vows at the top of Bennachie a couple of years ago, it was really lovely!
