Associate Tutor, Psychology Position at UNIVERSITY OF SURREY
Salary: £35.00 per hour
Post type: Part time
Closing Date: 11.59pm BST on Wednesday 31 August 2022
The University of Surrey PhD in Clinical Psychology is pleased to announce openings for Associate Tutor (Clinical) positions to join the program team. It’s an exciting time to join the Clinical Psychology Training Program, with expanding training locations providing opportunities to develop new ways to deliver high-quality training. Associate (clinical) tutors play a crucial role in contributing to the PsychD clinical psychology training program, overseeing the clinical and professional development of a small group of trainees throughout their three years of the program. This includes holding semi-annual placement meetings with placement supervisors and interns to monitor skill development. End of program meetings are also organized twice a year with the trainees. Associate tutors must provide regular feedback to the program team and are required to attend meetings with the program team at least twice a year. Please note that for the 2022-2023 academic year there may be a hybrid approach, with the majority of meetings held remotely but the possibility of some face-to-face meetings.
It is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional development. Training is provided during the first year of employment and a range of CPD opportunities will be available. The role will specifically be to support a group of six interns during their time on the program. For the first year in this role, this will require approximately 95 hours, increasing to approximately 86 hours for the time remaining in the role (this may vary depending on whether meetings will be face-to-face in the future). There may be the option of supporting a smaller number of interns, with a lower number of hours, if preferred.
The initial appointment will be for a period of one year, but it is expected that successful candidates will be available for at least three years to follow a cohort of trainees throughout the program.
Applications are welcome from clinical and counseling psychologists, with a minimum of two years post-qualification experience in a wide range of areas, including clinical or advisory work within the NHS, third sector or social care organizations, or clinic-related research or policy roles. Candidates should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and an interest in supporting the development of clinical psychologist trainees. Experience supervising trainee clinical psychologists will be an advantage. A flexible approach to work will be required.
The PsychD in Clinical Psychology program is based at the University of Surrey’s School of Psychology, which has an outstanding reputation for professional training and research in applied psychology. The team is a welcoming, innovative and cohesive group, with a wide variety of special interests and training expertise.
