- Our values based recruitment process takes full account of the six core values and the NHS Constitution and the ten competences model derived by Baron and O’Reilly (Clinical Psychology Forum No 232, April 2012)
- The programme strives to ensure that we uphold the values of equality and inclusivity at all times, including in our selection process. For this reason, our procedure is designed to actively encourage those from diverse backgrounds to apply and is focused on an individual's overall potential to become an outstanding clinical psychologist rather than over-emphasising existing knowledge and skills.
- Applications are also considered on the basis of academic attainment, clinical experience, life experience, reflexivity and critical understanding of the social and cultural context of the profession of clinical psychology and the workplace. Approximately 42 candidates are usually short-listed for interview.
