If you’re a graduate, with significant hands-on experience in the mental health field, we recommend joining us on our Advanced Placement for eight weeks, outside of the summer. Here you can utilise your skills in a totally new and challenging environment with other graduates.
You'll split your time between a minimum of six weekly projects, giving you the opportunity to gain 40 + hours of hands-on experience with diverse groups of service users in various settings. This placement is all about showcasing the wealth of abilities you’ve just spent years building, so don't expect any shadowing. This is your time to shine and to use the knowledge and experience you have to conceive and execute sessions to an exacting standard.
