Re: Progress thread

Unless one of the other mods beats me to it, I'll do it tomorrow when I've got my laptop out.

Re: Pre-interview tests UEL/Salomons

I believe it's the top x percent that get offered an interview, rather than those who reach a certain cut off.

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

Be assertive and proactive with this, as the only person who loses out is you. Phone the academic reference today, phone clearing house today.

Re: Academic Referee Guidance

I'm pretty sure your application will be significantly hindered without the academic reference, if I'm being honest. However, get on to clearing house ASAP and find out what can be done. Applications will have only just arrived with the course centres, they won't have shortlisted yet, and so you mig...

Re: NHS Lease Cars - While Training

Training is a full time contract, so if that's the only potential issue then you should be fine.

Re: Psychology Degree Advice

... And this is why I got a low 2:1 undergrad degree. Wish I'd followed this advice way back when. Nowhere in mungle's list is "Play lots of computer games into the night" or "Chase after the chess club boys". Probably for a good reason.

Good luck with it all!

Re: Part time training

Go Lancaster. It's about time someone put the effort into working this one out. Can't have been easy to arrange, but it's important and a long time coming.

Re: How long to wait for HR to contact me?

Have you ever worked for the NHS before? This is not surprising or unusual at all. It may be 3 days since you were offered the post, but most of that was the weekend! It may be that the interviewer hasn't let HR know yet. Or they work part time. Or just that HR haven't got round to you on their to d...

Re: Why pay a trainee?

There's two different questions here. Why are trainees paid a band 6 salary? And, why are trainees paid a full time salary? The former can be answered, in my opinion, by the level of work that the trainee CP does. They hold a case load, doing therapy work and other types of clinical work independent...

Re: Awarded lower grade for masters - state why on application?

A merit is a good grade. I think explaining the stuff about submitting a plan instead of a piece of work is not going to show you in the best light (an easy mistake to make, but not necessarily the impression you want to give). You could just say you are appealing the decision, but the courses will ...
