Applications particularly welcomed from candidates who specialise in low intensity supervision who are keen to contribute to the implementation of the senior practitioner curriculum.
Working with our Psychology team you will be primarily responsible for the delivery of teaching, module leadership and supervision on the PG Diploma in Low Intensity Supervision Training and Senior Practice. The post will also require you to contribute to other CYP IAPT programmes such as the Wellbeing Practitioner in Children and Young People and the Education Mental Health Practitioner programmes. The post may also provide the opportunity to teach a limited amount on some of our other offerings such as the MSc Child and Adolescent Mental Health and MSc Counselling Children and Young People. The successful applicant will also contribute to our Personal Academic Tutor role and other related activities as required.
As an academic you will also be able to contribute to the research and scholarly output of the subject area and work collegiately with other researchers in Psychology and Counselling. This is supported through our research centres and twenty-five days of annual scholarly activity.
You should be a team player and a highly motivated individual. You will have a relevant degree and appropriate supervisory training such as IAPT PG Cert in Supervision or other relevant qualification in supervisory training with a focus on supervision theory. Additionally, you should be accredited or eligible to work towards accreditation with relevant professional bodies such as the BABCP or UKCP. You will preferably have substantial clinical experience delivering supervision, and ideally working in mental health and/or counselling contexts with children, young people and families.
Experience in at least one of these areas is highly desirable: experience of teaching in higher or further education, experience of facilitating supervision of supervisors, experience of leadership and managing teams.
The Psychology Subject Area at the University of Northampton is a large, collegiate, and supportive department with a strong culture of student focused teaching and high impact research. We deliver an extensive portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate awards and are in a period of growth. Our current portfolio consists of a suite of BPS accredited undergraduate and postgraduate conversion Psychology programmes, while our strengths at postgraduate level lie in the areas of Counselling, Children and Young People and Child and Adolescent Mental Health. We also deliver various programmes on Health Education England’s Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) initiative, as part of the Midlands IAPT Collaborative.
