Re: Experience/Application Advice

To reiterate all my posts on the subject, the expectations of different courses in terms of access to 'experience' vary hugely and start at none at all. People do not need clinical experience, postgraduate training, published papers, or experience in research to get a place on a DClinPsy. I'd look a...

Re: NHS Lease Cars - While Training

You'd probably be better looking at the trust websites for the appropriate employing trusts rather than the universities - they are the ones that will be running the schemes. For example the Lancashire Care FT site says their scheme is run via GMP (https://gmpdrivercare.com).

Re: Part time training

Until we have finalised the details with the university and stakeholders, I can't give precise details. However, it will be a set FTE which can be compressed into a short number of days per week to allow for portfolio working or spread out over a full week to allow for reduced hours per day. The ful...

Re: Part time training

For those not aware, Lancaster will be offering a formalised part time route commencing in 2020. Although we currently support trainees in flexible working, we feel that the dedicated route will provide a structure that gives people taking this option more support. Our hope is that it will also enco...

Re: European citizens

You will get a contract to sign from your employing trust. The university doesn't pay your wages so it's understandable that they would be vague in this area.

Re: Lancaster 2018

I'll be confirming with you all individually that you are happy to share your personal email with the rest of the cohort and will give that to you as a group once the 24 of you are all finalised. It makes the early chats about setting up groups and housing etc a lot easier.

Re: Lancaster Interview

Long answer taken from our website: Our selection event looks at the competencies an individual holds, not their knowledge and skills. As we [explain on our website], for a variety of reasons not all applicants are fortunate enough to have the same access to education and employment. We focus on th...

Yes, they have outstanding test-retest reliability. The evidence base is why we use them. The statistical data on the tests is freely available online.

Re: Staffordshire Selection Test 2018

Re: Numerical Reasoning test problems

Yes, tests need to be reset by the administrator. If you have emailed me then I will have done this. If you have contacted one of the programmes then email me and I'll reset the test as soon as I have a chance. Our advice not to wait until the last few days to do the tests is to try to help you avoi...
