Programme Leader - for the Person Centred Diploma/MSc Programme in the Faculty of Psychotherapy and Counselling
The Metanoia Institute wishes to appoint a senior academic with considerable experience in managing academic programmes at post-graduate level. The person appointed must be capable of overseeing the complete student experience from recruitment, teaching, assessment, supervision through to graduation.
The PC MSc programme is a Person Centred Psychotherapy training which equips students to become UKCP Registered Psychotherapists and practitioner researchers, authenticated through the final assessments of a clinical Viva Voce exam and the written submission of a dissertation formulated from a research study, independently conducted by the student in fifth year (Dissertation Module) of the programme.
The research component draws predominantly from the qualitative paradigm commensurate with phenomenological experiencing which underpins the PC approach. Applications are therefore sought from individuals with a broad knowledge of qualitative research methodologies such as Grounded Theory, Moustakas’ Heuristic Research, Phenomenological Research, IPA and Narrative Research. This post involves the review and assessment of students’ applications to the Metanoia Research Ethics Committee and delivery of the dissertation research study days.
The Institute is looking for an academic with particular Person-Centred Psychotherapy experience, who wishes to maintain client involvement in private practice. The Metanoia Institute is at an interesting time in its 30-year history of developing under-graduate and post-graduate courses in Counselling and Psychotherapy and intends to seek in the future its own degree awarding powers and in time University Title.
