We are looking for an experienced psychological professional (such as a HCPC registered practitioner psychologist; BABCP accredited CBT therapist) to lead a project investigating the supervision requirements for psychological therapies, including those required for post-graduate training programmes, across the region (South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw). Health Education England (HEE) are funding this 6-month fixed term post.
The primary responsibilities for the postholder are to conduct a scoping exercise of existing and required supervision of psychological therapies, consider where pressures exist and explore possible systemic solutions. This work will require working across NHS and higher education systems across the region and to link with parallel work being conducted in regions across the North of England. The postholder will also coordinate additional supervisory arrangements where the need is greatest. This work will also involve an evaluation of the impact of recommendations arising from this work.
Close liaison with local NHS Trusts, University colleagues and other program stakeholders (such as Experts by Experience/ Service Users and Carers) in the South Yorkshire and Bssetlaw region will be necessary to ensure areas for development are identified and met, whilst also ensuring regional and National initiatives are identified and progressed.
You will report to the Department Lead on the project (Professor Gillian Hardy), and liaise with the NHS and other relevant stakeholders).
Further information about the Department and about the team is available on our website at www.shef.ac.uk/psychology.
