Main Responsibilities

We are looking for post holders to contribute to the academic curriculum as Academic Tutor and/or the clinical experience placement provision as Clinical Tutor , however there is an expectation of involvement with all areas of the programme, to ensure good synchronisation between the three major strands of training: academic, clinical and research. We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants with a strong research background and experience. We are especially keen on recruiting individuals with clinical backgrounds in adult mental health, learning disabilities and older adults to add to the profile of the existing course staff team. Additional training in CBT, systemic therapies or third wave therapies would also be beneficial, but not essential.

Successful applicants will have a clinical psychology qualification, be registered with the Health and Care Professions' Council and have up-to-date knowledge of clinical psychology practice. Applicants should have substantial experience of working post-qualification (minimum of two years) and have an enthusiasm for training. Previous experience of working on a clinical psychology training programme and a track record of publications would be advantageous.

We benefit from superb purpose-built facilities in a £30 million Science Centre, and we work across the region with several organisations and agencies, including NHS, third sector, social enterprise and charitable organisations. Putting the students first is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing an excellent student experience through exciting and innovative programmes and research and practice informed teaching at every level.

Programme staff are employed by Staffordshire University and are responsible to the Course Lead. We will also consider secondment arrangements with existing employers.
