Re: Second chance from widthdrawn from interview?

I don't know how far you need to travel but what an awful shame. I'm guessing you've already looked at national express coaches, megabus and advance and ticket-splitting on the trains.

Re: 'Why do you want to be a CP' - How honest should I be

Yes your experience is relevant but also show how your interest has developed and been shaped over the years. Such a question also offers your the opportunity to demonstrate you understand what is involved in being a CP. Why a CP and not a MH Nurse, OT, CBT Therapist, Psychoanalyst, Researcher etc.

Re: Masters or AP job

I'd also agree wit taking the AP job. You can always choose to do the masters later or part-time alongside work but it's better experience than a volunteer placement and they pay you rather than the other way round! Seek out opportunities to do an audit, help with service evaluation, even get involv...

Re: As an undergrad, what expectations are realistic regarding my post-grad path (plus should I learn to drive)

Good luck with your studies. It is usually fairly straightforward to get some work but it is unlikely to be AP roles straight away or continuously. Once you do get to the 'highly relevant' pre-training roles you might find you have gaps between contracts but can fill these with agency care/support w...

Re: Advice please:))) - post UG

Congratulations on graduating and achieving a First. AP posts are competitive but this in itself is not a reason to avoid applying for them. Draft a core personal statement that is reflective and with a high standard of writing. Do carefully proof read it!Then ensure you tailor it to each job and cl...

Re: AP vs PWP

1. What would you enjoy the most?
2. Where would you develop the most? (skills, understanding, reflection, knowledge of the profession etc.)
3. What do you want to do in 5 years time and which will help you get there

BABCP accreditation question

I'm hoping to tap into the wisdom on this forum. I've been going through the BABCP accreditation forms this morning to work out what extra experience I'll need to gain. I'm hoping to submit a provisional application within the next year. Does anyone know what can count for CPD/post-core training CPD...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) Having a morning of feeling an inadequate psychologist - it still rears it's head several years after qualifying! 2) On the other hand one thing I love about this profession is I will always be learning and having new reflections until the day I peg out 3) My dog is very grounding...and doesn't s...

In so many ways they are at the forefront. Random youtube videos do not give a high quality psychology degree. YouTube videos should be...

Re: Worried about my disability

I'm wary of sharing too much on a public forum but basically the Uni made life as difficult as possible for me and others with chronic or recurrent conditions. They might have coped better with a consistent and permanent disability. However, I have heard other courses have been more supportive. Hope...
