I know im not allowed to be supervised by a band 7 ATM, and when I was an AP I could be co-supervised by a band 7, but my main supervisor had to be band 8. That might have been a local policy for AP's though? I understand why you would want a trainee to be supervised by a band 8 tbh, some of the wor...

So newly qualified's don't supervise? Is there are 2 year post-qual rule, similar to CP?

I thought the newly qualifieds were band 5 and then they moved to 6 ( or band 7 for management). I think thought it might be a distinction between inpatinent and community settings, rather than experience?

Im not sure that band 5's from any profession are able to supervise others (for obvious reasons). In CP we are supposed to have at least 2 years experience post-qualification to supervise junior staff (AP's/trainees) - that's at least a band 7, but the majority are band 8's - especially for trainee ...

You don't need loads of research knowledge to do an RA post, the likelihood is you won't be designing research, but rather carrying it (or part of it) out. Posts are competitive, but what isn't!

looking at your experience IMHO I would suggest moving and gaining experience with a diff client group. Have you thought about RA posts? They are often better paid than AP posts?

I don't think it matters - you need a good UG grade and the money to pay them. :-)

Some courses do short interviews, some do day-long interviews, some do half day interviews. It depends on the course and they are all really different. Some have group tasks, some tests, some just interviews, some role-plays, some presentations! I found different interview days a very different expe...
