Vacancy: CYP-CWP Clinical Practice Tutor

Hours: 364 hours across the contract duration, to include 24 days teaching (on Fridays in term time).

Salary: £38,000 to £49,000 per annum FTE depending on experience, plus 6% contributory pension scheme

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice, research, training, and promoting mental health awareness.

The Child Wellbeing Practitioner (CWP) role is part of the Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP-IAPT) programme. The CWP postgraduate certificate course trains practitioners in the delivery of low-intensity interventions (e.g. guided self-help) for children and adolescents. It is a key part of the Future in Mind proposals to increase the workforce set out by the government in 2015. The students are recruited by partnerships (e.g. NHS, local authorities, & third sector organisations) within the CYP-IAPT Collaborative and are employees of these partnerships. The students graduate with a University College London (UCL) qualification on successful completion of the course.

The Clinical Practice Tutor role involves delivering lectures and facilitating practice tutor groups of approximately 10 students. All teaching takes place on Fridays at the Centre. On non-teaching days, practice tutors mark papers, support students, and develop teaching resources. The content of the course is guided by a national curriculum group chaired by the National Advisor for CYP IAPT and Child Mental Health. The three common presentations that students are trained to work with include anxiety, low mood, and behaviour problems. We strongly encourage applicants who have an excellent understanding of CBT principles and behavioural parent training. Experience delivering guided self-help or low-intensity CBT within the context of child and adolescent work is also desirable.

We are looking to appoint a Clinical Practice Tutor starting from 18th January 2019. The post holder will be based at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, 12 Maresfield Gardens, London NW3 5SU. Teaching will move to our new King’s Cross campus at 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH, in May 2019.

The Centre values diversity and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.
