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

When I was applying to IAPT trainee and qualified posts (without a driving licence) most adverts said that driving was either essential or desirable. However, I still applied to a quite a few of these posts, explaining that although I didn't drive yet I was willing to travel as required using other ...

Re: The Great Big PhD Tea-Sympathy-and-Celebration Thread

Hi, I'm struggling through my third year, and still not sure what I plan on doing after. I'm definitely tempted by clinical, but think I may need a break from studying. Most of the PhD student I know seem to focus on career plans toward the end/last few months of their PhD. Not sure if that is reass...

Re: Aiming to get onto PWP training next year

Hi purplebear, Sounds like you have great experience, so I'd say go for it. I really enjoyed my training and training year. I ended up leaving after my training year, but mainly because a really exciting opportunity to do a funded PhD came up. The people on my course had really varied experience so ...

Re: Forensic Psychology - Experience

Hi, I can't really comment on the other voluntary options, as I haven't worked in many forensic settings or looked into going down that route. I was a member of the Samaritans Prison Team, a few years ago (although only for a short period of time, as I moved away following graduation). I found the r...

Re: Choosing between trainee PWP posts.

Hi Psyfer First of all well done on the job offer and interviews. I was in a similar situation 2 years ago. A couple of things I asked/looked into at each Trainee PWP interview were about progression (i.e. does the service employ senior PWPs), what are the targets, supervision (who would be supervis...

Re: Average age getting onto PWP training?

I was 23 when I started the course (2013), and again there was a huge age range on the training courses and in the workplace. I know of one person who started just after they graduated from undergrad (who had volunteered in the IAPT service) and I am also aware of people in their 50s doing the cours...

Re: PhD Studentship Interview

Well done on being offered an interview. I had an interview for a PhD studentship in a clinically relevant area and was fortunate to be offered the project I applied for. In terms of interviews everyone seemed to have a really different experience (some people seemed to just have an informal chat an...
