Director of Studies PGCertHE in Teaching Counselling and Psychotherapy
This is a small, exciting and pioneering specialist programme, the first dedicated qualification in the teaching of the psychological therapies. Training in counselling, psychotherapy and applications of the psychological therapies requires trainers/ lecturers to have specific, highly specialised, skills in facilitating the development of self-awareness, reflexivity, and the therapeutic use of self in participants in order that they are able to reach the competence requirements for professional practice to work at depth in the therapeutic relationship and therapeutic process. Therefore, a discipline specific training/teaching qualification that addresses the planning, creation and facilitation of curriculums and experiential learning forums to support the development of these skills/ attributes alongside robust theoretical knowledge and ethical professional practice seems a natural development.
We encourage applications from all backgrounds, communities and are committed to having a team that is made up of diverse skills, experience and abilities. We actively encourage BAME applicants to apply as we are committed to equality and diversity as an Institute.
