We have a vacancy for a full-time post; however, we are very happy to discuss a range of part time options.
We are seeking to expand our CBT team within the School of Health and Social Work, at the University of Hertfordshire. We deliver highly successful BABCP accredited programmes, including IAPT, with both part time and full-time routes. Currently, most of our delivery is online and will be for 2023/24. Our School has a long-established reputation as a centre for excellence for healthcare education. Our vision is to transform lives through our education, research and community engagement activities. The provision of high-quality mental health related programmes, including CBT and IAPT, is central to this vision.
You will work within the mental health team of the Department of Nursing, Health & Wellbeing, to undertake planning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of programmes of learning related to CBT, including IAPT.
We will provide full training, funding and support in relation to teaching and learning in a university setting. This will equip you to teach and develop the CBT curriculum within designated modules as well as having the potential to contribute to our short courses. You will perform administrative and quality assurance duties and will contribute to Programme Development teams, examination boards and the monitoring and review panels as appropriate. In addition to this, where appropriate, you will be able to represent CBT/mental health both locally and nationally and will have opportunities to contribute to departmental activities and national networks. You will be committed to our policy of equal opportunities and participate in other academic activities within the School and University.
You will have proven experience of delivering high quality CBT approaches as an accredited BABCP Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. You will also have experience of providing supervision related to CBT. You will have complex interpersonal skills, particularly in written and verbal communication. You will also have a high standard of negotiation and facilitation skills.
You will hold Masters degree (or equivalent) in a subject relevant to mental health. You will be accredited with BABCP as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.
Our commitment to the University’s Safeguarding Policy, requires that the recruitment of staff in this area, will need to undertake the minimum of a Basic DBS Check. In the course of our work and University-led activities, there may be external or other contractual obligations where a further Enhanced Check is required. DBS Checks may require renewal in line with policy.
Successful applicants who have lived outside the UK, for 12 months or more (whether continuously or in total), in the last 10 years, will be required to produce a ‘Certificate of Good Character/Conduct’ from each of those countries.
