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

1. Despite my best efforts to start the year with clarity, peace and stability, life had other plans for me. Although not as terrible as last year, I found myself feeling quite sad and I couldn't identify why when generally most things in my life had been going well. 2. The one thing that did come t...

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

1. Culturally adapted BA training successfully delivered in Turkey :D We got really good feedback, useful insight in to region specific issues around mental health and therapy as well as a potential to go back next year. 2. The only downside to above was that they were 5 packed days so instead of a ...

Slightly confused by the weather. Still and...

Re: PWP Contractual obligation

I've heard similar, 6 months - 2 years but I'm not sure how often this is enforced.

In my current service, a PWP working for a consortium partner applied for a trainee high intensity after a year and bit of qualifying. They were successful and the condition of paying back was not enforced.

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

1. I really need to get on top of my planning for work! I didn't realise I would be bombarded with so many opportunities so soon after qualifying. Don't get me wrong - I am feeling very blessed and very grateful but it is clashing with my original idea of staying still, focusing on the role and my l...

Re: core professions

It is good to check if it has changed but I also think that for the core profession criteria, it is to be registered with a governing body like Victoriomantic has said.

But if not, you definitively have enough experience for the KSA route.

Re: PWP payment

I think it depends on when the cut off mark is for payroll compared with when you start but generally I have been paid at the end of the month (for the 2 weeks that I have worked). I did work for a charity once that had their payday on the 15th so it meant you got paid for the month (2 weeks worked ...

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

I did lingua! I hope you're feeling better and rested. 1. I still don't think it has fully hit me that all the studying is over. I find myself with time for the first time in so many years.
