Associate Clinical Tutor - MSc Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice

Location: London

Application Deadline: 25 June 2021 12:00

Vacancy Type: Fixed Term/Part Time

Contract Duration: Fixed-term, one year in the first instance with a view to extend the contract in the future

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice and research, training and promoting awareness of mental health issues. In April 2019, the Centre opened its new Centre of Excellence located in King’s Cross. The Centre collaborates with UCL in offering a unique portfolio of postgraduate programmes in child and adolescent mental health, covering both clinical training and research, ranging from certificate to doctoral levels.

The Centre values diversity and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.

The main purpose of the post is to be a Clinical Tutor and take a lead role, alongside the Programme Director and Deputy Programme Director in developing, monitoring, delivering and reviewing the personal tutor systems and second-year placements in our MSc programme in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice (DPCP). The post-holder will act as Clinical Tutor for up to 20 students on the DPCP course. During the first year, each student has three personal tutor meetings per term, lasting 30 minutes per meeting. In the second year, students are on placement in a CAMHS service or equivalent, so the post-holder will be expected to carry out two placement reviews for any second-year students, as well as one personal tutor meeting at the Centre. The post-holder will also be contributing to other aspects of the programme, such as facilitating webinars, professional skills workshops or journal club forums for students.

The successful candidate will hold a core qualification as a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) professional with experience of working with children and families in a range of settings and track record of providing excellent pastoral care to students and/or trainees. 

The post-holder will be home-based during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; thereafter at the Anna Freud Centre, 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH.
