The Faculty of Life Sciences and Education is seeking to appoint a Lecture to join the School of Psychology and Therapeutic Studies. The successful applicant will primarily teach at postgraduate level on Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy training courses. We would like to hear from you if you could:

  • contribute to teaching of Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy skills and theory, using a CBTapproach
  • contribute to teaching of professional practice issues
  • lead modules on the postgraduate MSc/PG Diploma Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy
  • support and supervise Masters dissertation projects
  • engage in research, scholarly activity and/ or external training

This is an opportunity to join a vibrant and enthusiastic team, which encompasses a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy approaches. This job may suit you, if you are an experienced therapist with up-to-date knowledge of the subject area and a commitment to training new therapists in best practice. You will be accredited as a therapist by BABCP (or equivalent), or eligible to apply for accreditation. Experience of teaching in Higher or Further Education is preferred. Interest in developing a research profile is a strong advantage.

The course is based at our light and modern Newport City Centre Campus, which has excellent public transport links. Students benefit from placements in our in-house counselling services and a purpose built counselling clinic used by both courses and services.

The terms and conditions of the post (including grade and salary) will be those of the University of South Wales.
