CYP IAPT Trainee – CBT
Full time post (12-month fixed term)
Noa Girls is a charity supporting adolescent girls in the Orthodox Jewish Community
We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic mental health practitioner to join our team as a Recruit to Train Trainee, part of the NHS England (NHSE) funded Recruit to Train Programme in partnership with the Anna Freud Centre and University College London. You will be training on the Children & Young People Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) Therapy Course and carrying out clinical work in our service to complement your studies and use your developed skills in order to receive your Post Graduate Diploma in CYP IAPT Therapy. The training post will equip you to provide interventions for children, young people or families using evidence-based intervention consistent with the course you are attending.
The successful candidate will receive a full-time salary whilst undertaking two days of training and working at least 2.5 days of working clinically at Noa Girls each week.
The salary is commensurate with a band 6 NHS salary (up to mid-point). Your university fees are fully funded.
The training placement includes supervision by clinicians specialising in CBT as well as in-house support by a clinical psychologist.
This role will be best suited for applicants that are able to balance a very busy work and study schedule. You will be an employee at Noa Girls but also enrolled on a Postgraduate Diploma course. As this is a Postgraduate level training, you will be required to study and perform at academic level. Applicants must be prepared to work towards their studies outside of protected study time (such as on weekends and after work). Protected study time or teaching days are typically two days a week during term (with possibility of extra university days near start) and will be a mixture of in person and online sessions. Applicants must be willing to travel into London to attend their lectures.
You will need to be available to start by the 9th of January at the latest (with the course starting on the 15th January.)
