Recruit to Train 2020 – Information for Applicants

We are pleased to confirm that funding has been approved for Recruit to Train posts across London and the South East for new staff to undertake training on the 2 Year Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) in CYP IAPT Therapy starting January 2020 in the following modalities:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) delivered at KCL
  • Systemic Family Practice (SFP) delivered at KCL
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents (IPT-A) delivered at UCL
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder and Learning Disabilities (ASD/LD) delivered at UCL
  • Infant Mental Health (0-5s) delivered at UCL

Alongside completing the postgraduate training, the staff recruited into these posts will:

  • Increase capacity in services by increasing the workforce
  • Further embed evidence-based practice
  • Have a role as change agents to accelerate transformation in services through use of feedback and outcomes tools and collaborative practice and participation with children, young people and families.

Prospective students will need to make a dual application in order to be considered for these training posts. This means you will have to apply for both a place on the course with either UCL or KCL (depending on the chosen modality) and for one of the corresponding jobs with one of the Trusts/organisations who will be advertising for these training posts. The job and the course go hand-in-hand, and the process of applying for a job and a place on the course happen concurrently. In order to secure a place on the course, prospective students will need to successfully obtain one of these jobs.

To clarify, in order to be successful in recruitment, the respective module leader would need to approve you as suitable for the course based on your application submitted to the University and the service would also have to select you for the corresponding job via their (separate) application process.

If successful, for the duration of the 2 years (from January 2020 onward) you will be working in a Mental Health service for 2.5 days per week while also attending University (at KCL or UCL) completing the PG Dip in CYP IAPT Therapy. 

The university application portals at UCL and KCL are now open and you may begin submitting your application for the PG Dip in CYP IAPT Therapy. Please note that the portals will be open until the first week of December 2019 and you will need to have submitted your application by then AND have applied for the job in order to be considered.

We will be updating this page regularly with the names of services advertising for these training posts as and when their adverts become available.

You will need to make a dual application as follows:

1 Apply for the Recruit to Train role with the Recruiter (application links will be made available once they go live – you will find this link in the column Job Advert LINK as and when these become available). Please check this page regularly AND look up for job adverts on the NHS website or Google the following key words: CYP IAPT, Recruit to Train as sometimes there is a delay in getting the links from recruiting services.

2 Apply for the 2 year Postgraduate Diploma in CYP IAPT with the university delivering the modality you are interested in.  

PLEASE NOTE that the roles advertised by each recruiter are likely to differ in terms of hours/salary
