Re: Audio-books/podcasts for the car

I like listening to chatty, fun stuff completely unrelated to psychology in the car :D Recently I've been obsessed with Good Job, Brain!, which is quite a fun trivia podcast. You can learn all sorts of weird and wonderful facts... I also like Stuff You Should Know, Pop Culture Happy Hour and B**ch R...

Re: UCL 2015

Ahh, hello! I've accepted my place too. Can't wait to start and to meet everyone, but I'm also feeling pretty nervous now that it's all happening! I'm from North London but have been living in Cambridge so will be house hunting for September. Which days did you guys interview? I wonder if we've bump...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

And that's it! 2015 UCL >> UCL UEA UEL Essex I can't really believe it yet. First time applying last year, no interviews. Two AP posts since then and ended up with one this year. It really does just take one sometimes! I thought the UCL interview was really fair, if completely impossible to prepare ...

Re: Mental Health Studies - IoP at Kings College

Hello! Congrats on the place on the course! I did it 2012-2013 and thought the teaching was top quality. Hours-wise most of us had all our lectures on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the Denmark Hill campus. Some managed to get their module choices to fit in one very long Tuesday. In total I think it's a...

Re: Hello: Introduce yourself here!

Hi everyone. I've been a member (lurker) of Clinpsy for years but have only recently started hanging around more, so thought it was about time to say hello! Bit about me: I'm currently finishing up an AP post in community learning disabilities and am heading off to start another post in forensics. I...

Re: AP jobs - how long; from application to start date?

I think it really depends on how quickly they need you to start too. I applied for my current role at the end of October, interviewed mid-November, found out the next day and started exactly a month later. I think my supervisor was chasing things up with HR quite often so she probably hurried things...

Re: Stuck in a rut

Pinkcrocodile, good luck on those applications! It's really frustrating when you don't hear back, but it's a matter of tweaking the content until the interviews start flooding in! (Well, maybe it's more like a not-so-steady trickle...) And until then, we're all here to help :)

Re: Stuck in a rut

Pinkcrocodile, I just wanted to say: there is hope, I promise! I recently got my first NHS AP post and before that I was in the same position as you and was a support worker for adults with LD and Autism. I was starting to feel like there wasn't much for me to develop anymore in that role but at the...
