Access to a car?

Hi everyone, I have been looking through the requirements of the courses, and the majority of them expect applicants to have a valid drivers license when they are interviewed. They also say that access to a car is essential, but I am not sure I understand at which point access to a car is needed - w...

Re: Did the training but never went on to work as a PWP

Hello MindfulPsych,

You are right, I got confused! - It is BAP accredited, not BABCP. That is very helpful, thank you for clarifying :)

Bachelor degree completed in a second language as a justification for lower mark?

I got a mid 2:1 in my undergraduate degree and while this is definitely not the end of the world I cannot help feeling frustrated about this because I don't think it reflects my academic ability at all.

My job will consist of calling people currently on a CMHT waiting list in order to do a welfare check, disc...

Re: NHS Recruitment System

Hi kbarys! What you described sounds like the common experience when starting a job in the NHS. In my case I waited for 2-3 months after accepting a verbal offer until I was contacted about a start date. Perhaps it is worth contacting them again at the end of the month if you haven't heard from them...
