Re: First AP interview - Severe Eating Disorders

This. Congratulations on the interview coming. In terms of general advice for AP posts, you may get some common questions. The general themes of these can be picked up from the wiki link in regards to interview questions. From past experience these generally are risk, use of supervision, team work,...

Re: First AP interview - Severe Eating Disorders

I'd like to second what haymond says, do not focus too much on learning about the specialty lest you forget about preparing the core material, you and your previous experience and how that is relevant to the role. For me knowledge acquisition is a reassurance seeking behaviour but I think it has no...

Re: Does anyone mind having a look over my AP application?

Hi I don't mind looking at it if you think I might be any help at all. I work as a RA at the moment but I had several AP interviews last year so I guess there was something good about my personal statements that got me shortlisted for those jobs :) Can you also send me the job description/person sp...

Re: Looking for unusual advice about my career

Indeed, classroom support posts, work in care homes for older people, children's homes, or groups homes for people with learning disabilities or mental health needs are based in every locality. I'd start with the phone book and google and look for something within walking distance! Thank you, ill c...

Re: Looking for unusual advice about my career

Hi bunnies As someone else without a car (I'm unable to drive for medical reasons) I just wanted to say that I completely understand your concerns and frustrations about poor public transport and the high cost of commuting into London. A few practical ideas: - I lived in nursing accommodation whils...

Does anyone mind having a look over my AP application?

As above, does anyone mind having a look over my AP supporting information?

I've never been able to send it to anyone before so it would be great if someone could have a look :)
Thank you.

Re: Looking for unusual advice about my career

Hi bunnies I would second alexh. I really would look at applying for AP posts. I got my first AP post with only four months relevant experience (It wasn't psychology but it was relevant and pretty unusual experience so it made my application stand out). It's not about how long you have been working...

Re: Looking for unusual advice about my career

Why not apply for AP, RA and trainee PWP posts, you may not get them but you definitely will not if you do not apply. I'm sure I applied for 30 before getting an interview. I couldn't afford to do support work as it wouldn't have covered my childcare costs. If you're considering moving anyway why n...

Looking for unusual advice about my career

I graduated last year with a high 2:1, I was lucky to get a NHS support worker job pretty quickly. I struggled with the hours and knew I didn't want to stay in that environment for long (even though I did learn a lot). On the way to work I was involved in a reasonably bad car crash, it wrote off my ...
