Foreword from our Dean
I am delighted that you are joining us in helping people to transform their lives for the better.
Thank you for choosing to embark on a journey of discovery at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. I hope it will challenge and inspire you and enrich your understanding and practice.
At the Trust you will be studying in an innovative and world-leading institution for mental health, social care, education and psychological therapies (to name a few), with tutors and other colleagues who are dedicated to this field and have a wealth of knowledge and experience at your disposal.
We can only continue our world-leading reputation with your help, through your research and practice and I am excited to continue our mission with you.
Brian Rock, Director of Education and Training, and Dean of Postgraduate Studies
from our Chief Executive
I’d like to extend a warm welcome to you all.
I hope you find your first week with us helpful and informative; I encourage you to make the most of the opportunity to meet fellow students.
We are committed to making a measurable difference to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. By training with us, you are supporting this mission.
Our students are a vital part of our work and you are joining a growing cohort of professionals who share a common purpose.
Our training is provided by highly skilled tutors who draw on their own clinical experience to help you to develop the skills you need. Wherever you are in your career, I hope you use your time with us to learn and train but also as a space to think and reflect.
We’re privileged to have you join us on your training journey and I am sure you will be able to apply the training, learning and skills to help you wherever you are in your career. I truly hope you enjoy being part of an excellent learning environment.
Paul Jenkins OBE, Chief Executive
