Do you need to have a HCPC for an assistant psychologist/research assistant role?
No. Also, job adverts will usually say if some sort of registration is required.

Re: Will I be asked to engage with a statistical task at interview?

Could be either.

Love the phrase 'engage with a statistical test'. Suggests you'd find it particularly unpleasant. (On a serious note, if you are feeling unsure about your statistics abilities, there are lots of suggestions on the forum about how to improve your skills)

Good luck with the interview!

Re: Reference from a Counselling Psychologist

I don't know for sure, but I don't think it would make a difference, as han10 says, it's the understanding of the training that is important. Also worth noting that clinical psychology training courses often use counselling psychologists as supervisors for trainee placements.

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

Its the odds, the ratio between applicants and places. So the worst odds are from the 500 applicants for the 10 places at Coventry and Warwick (50:1). The best odds are from Salomans where they have almost the same number of applicants for 34 places (15:1). Ah, cool, thanks. On my phone it looked l...

Here you go, I made a ready-reckoner for you
Curiosity got the better of me. But I don't understand what the numbers mean. Surely it's not a case of 50% of applicants to Cov and Warwick got a place there?

Do I have enough experience to apply for an Assistant Psychologist post?

Have you got a few months experience working with people with mental health difficulties, in any position, paid or unpaid? Then yes, you have enough experience to apply. But if you are focusing purely on what experience you have and not what you've actually learned from it, or how the clients have e...

Re: Fixed term contract and pregnancy

I have no idea what on earth what that means. My advice would be to contact your Trust HR and get some clarity on this. Seeing as you're not pregnant it won't change anything in your employment, and I don't think they would be able to tell your manager that you'd asked or anything like that. Maybe a...

Re: NHS Recruitment System

It might be worth contacting the person who interviewed/offered job, as they will likely be wanting you to start soon as well. If you can let them know that you have done everything your end and you are just waiting for HR, then they may be able to chase it up a bit.

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

Focus your energy and time on things you can change, rather than things you can't (e.g. where you live if you have roots put down).

Re: Should I apply for the next intake - Part II

I think there is a debate on the whole “close to base” issue as some courses give points for being local to the area, putting applicants who live further away at a disadvantage. With the current funding issues and experience of the types of areas with difficulty employing a rounded psychological wo...
