We are seeking to appoint a number of HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologists to the post of Clinical Lecturer to join our newly establishing Master of Science Clinical Associate in Psychology Degree Apprenticeship (CAP) programme. You will join a supportive and enthusiastic group of research-oriented academics and clinicians in the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Therapies (CPPT) within Norwich Medical School which is located within the Faculty of Medicine and Health (FMH). The CAP programme forms one part of overall departmental activity, which includes the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, extensive provision for IAPT including High-Intensity Training, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner training, and Long-Term Conditions, and, since January 2020, the Educational Mental Healthcare Practitioner programme (EMHP). The department also has strong research and academic delivery with a number of active clinical researchers with a range of clinical research interests. Research is conducted alongside multidisciplinary colleagues within the University and partners in the NHS.
As an HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist the post-holder will support our newly establishing Master of Science Clinical Associate in Psychology Degree Apprenticeship (CAP) programme. This Programme seeks to train Clinical Associates in Psychology to work in local NHS services. The cohort will focus on Adult Mental Health, but this will include adults from across the lifespan, and so we would encourage applicants from Practitioner Psychologists working in those areas.
The post-holder may be asked to contribute to all elements of the programme which will include the teaching, advising and examining of Trainee Clinical Associates in Psychology along with liaison with CAP employers and recruitment of future trainees. As the CAP Programme will be housed in the Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Therapy, there are opportunities for the post-holder to become involved in the Department’s developing clinical research, training and enterprise agenda.
The precise duties will be agreed in discussion with the CAP Programme Director and the Head of Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Therapies.
The posts are available immediately on a part or full-time indefinite basis and will be subject to a criminal record check at Enhanced level from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Part-time and job share arrangements will be considered.
