I'm Helen Wingrave, Trainee Clinical Psychologist Manager. I work part time supporting the trainees who are employed by us for their three year fixed term contract.

Applications are managed by two training providers:

  • University of Surrey
  • Salomon's Centre for Applied Psychology (part of Canterbury Christ Church University)

Successful candidates are offered employment by us, funded by Health Education England, and spend some of their time on placement in NHS Trusts, working in partnership with their training provider, and the rest for study or teaching time for the course.

They are employed on a standard 37.5 hour contract but the demands of the course mean they spend longer meeting the requirements of the programme.

I am responsible for approx. 200 trainees. Most pass through the programme with only a few emails and other communications from me, while others who have additional needs, health problems or life events that disrupt their progress may see more of me.
