The College wishes to recruit Associate Lecturers on a full time, part time or job share basis, although for part time staff we require a minimum of 3 days per week with us. The posts are working in the Clinical Education Development and Research (CEDAR) team with academics in support of the delivery of the Low Intensity Psychological Practice (PWP) programme teaching within one of the leading providers of research-led and research-informed training in low-intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. The post will contribute to the delivery of the new training curriculum for PWPs enhancing competency to work with Adult with anxiety and depression.

These posts are available immediately on a 1 year fixed term contract, with the expectation of being extended, subject to funding. As such we are hoping to recruit staff that are committed to this role rather than wanting a short-term contract.

About the role

The posts will include supporting the student learning experience using a range of approaches and modes of delivery appropriate to the teaching and development of clinical competency in low-intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Specifically, you will work within a wider team to support the delivery of the curriculum associated with the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme for the clinical training of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners. Whilst the main base will be in Exeter, the course is also delivered across the South West in locatons such as Bristol and Taunton and further afield outside of the South West for occasional delivery days.

About you

The successful applicants will already possess an accredited Degree Level 6, PG Cert or above, in Low Intensity CBT (Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner) or a PG Dip in High Intensity CBT.
