Re: Do I have enough experience to get onto clinical trainin

Yes courses are all different. However, when talking about entry requirements, you might be forced to look at the more progressive courses regardless of what you want to do.

Absolutely. Clinical Psychology isn't special - you can demonstrate the competencies in lots of ways.

Re: Any successful applicants without CP supervision?

This is really disheartening to hear from Clinical Psychologists. Nor is it by any means true of many programmes around the country who are looking for your potential. If you apply to programmes that match your values and experience then there is no issue here.

The following were just the first few that came up - I've not used them so am not recommending them, just examples. https://www.practiceaptitudetests.com/ https://www...

Re: "Pending Release to Course Centre"

You could do shortlisting tests as the applications are released if you only had your own programme to worry about I suppose. Doesn't sound like much fun though.

Re: Access to equal opportunities information during selecti

I understand some of the London programmes wanted this added so that they could use the data to improve their approach to shortlisting. All I can tell you for sure is that Lancaster don't use this information as part of their selection process.

Re: does my work history look too scatty/indecisive?

Indeed - if you were looking at 'Lancasteresque' programmes then neither work nor academic history is going to be an issue.

Re: does my work history look too scatty/indecisive?

Where were you thinking of applying? The course centres you are interested in will significantly change the nature of the answer to your question.

I agree completely. I would push as hard and as far as you can go with that appeal.
