Re: Applying for qualified posts whilst still a trainee

It shouldn't be too much of an issue as it quite common for trainees to apply to qualified roles before finishing however the employment offer may be conditional upon passing either first time or upon resubmitting.

Re: Do you need to drive for all PWP posts?

Like above, I would still apply as I did this. I was willing to travel and luckily my service made a point of giving me clinics close to where I lived so it worked out well.

Good luck :-)

Re: re PWP post

Agency workers can choose to work anything from 3 days so that might be worth looking in to. I'm not sure how commonly part-time PWP roles are advertised directly from services though.

Re: The PWP role

My experience as a PWP has been mainly positive though comparable. The service I trained in is known for high targets/caseload and though this pace was something new for me, it was the team and supervision they provided which made it possible. I thoroughly enjoyed my training and learning on the job...

Re: PWP Training Now available without a degree

This is not a new route - it has been available for a few years now depending on which university you are looking at. I worked in a service where people did get on to the training without a degree - I must say I did question this and them ask a PWP as there is so much to the role than delivering the...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. The nightmare of the ex-flatmate is still not ending! She has moved but hasn't paid me for bills even though the agency have the meter readings and copies of bills due. At least the council tax is all her. I just want this to be over! 2. I'm really feeling behind with university work - since comi...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

5. I made the rookie mistake of getting a chai latte from Starbucks as opposed to my usual Costa stop as I was in a rush. I've never been so outraged/disappointed with a drink in my life. Completely ruined my day. Lesson learnt though - never again!! :roll: This made me laugh! Glad for you that thi...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. The recent experience of living with someone has just made me even more adamant to continue saving as much as possible to get my own place. This goal has just jumped to the top of my list for next year. 2. I am so grateful for the people around me, they have continued to support me and be my anch...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Doing this CBP course is such a roller-coaster! One minute I am panicking because I have no idea what I am doing and the next, I think I'm ok before going back to having a meltdown all over again! 2. Consequently, I am not sleeping well which isn't helping matters. I am also cold. Damn weather. 3...
