Also, some of the best CP's I know have 2.2's so it doesnt make you a better psychologist. It does however, make you more likely to pass the course - which is what the Uni are after (obviously), as they are academic institutions. Loads of people get thrown off courses though (I know of 3 people in t...

It's not unfair. If they have more than enough people to fill the course with high 2:1s or above then so be it. It is unfair as: They have moved the goal posts after you can do anything about it It's an arbitrary cut-off as Uni's don't look at a 66% and think...hum we should move them up to 67% - t...

May be practice your presentation skills? As we are now supposed to be leading the NHS and world the courses will be looking out for those kind of skills I would think. I guess they will be wanting a good explanation of why you chose to present what you did so may be consider that (although that wil...

I don't know about them, I know my course have deferred places for pregnancy so it does happen. I guess you have a choice, you could go along and not tell them or contact them now and see what they say? You don't have to give your name.

Also, congratulations! Should have said that first! :-)

Where is your interview? Obviously they can't discriminate as that's the law...but as you wouldn't be able to take up your place when the course starts then I guess they couldn't offer you one? I'd turn up and if I landed a place I'd see if they will defer me. Some courses will, some won't.

BTW, typing like a text is something a lot of people (including me) find quite off-putting, especially in a professional context. I find that quite interesting, from working in the NHS (a professional context) with hard to engage young people I have often used txt's to communicate and make appointm...

I'm wondering why a CP wouldn't tell a client who they're supervisor was?

I'm not sure they would have to tell them, but it's very bad practice not too as they will also be involved in their care.

Isn't supervision from another pwp actually just peer supervision? I think people would need supervision from a senior clinician, especially with some of the quote complex cases pwp's seem to be getting?

Some courses go for less experience (life/career), such as Oxford so think about which courses you have more a chance with if you're young. I have heard the same thing about Cov-they told someone they only interview candidates twice and if they are unsuccesful they won't interview them again. Howeve...

Do you know what a good thing about this process is? You can apply every year. So if you don't get on this year, you can apply next year. A year is not a long time to wait, not a long time in the context of the life-span or working life.

after they train you they want you to stay in IAPT...
It's because it costs money to train you! Why would the NHS train therapists which then leave? That's why there are career paths within IAPT so people can progress.

It's the same for CP, once they train you they want you to work as a CP.
