As well as our main open days and open evening, we are delighted to run a number of events throughout the year which are course specific. These events give you a chance to meet the course team, some current students and ask lots of questions! You can attend as many events as you like - they are all free but booking is essential.
Tuesday 4th of November from 5.30-7.30pm
In addition to the open evening on Thursday 14th of October, the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust are hosting a complementary online event for people who are currently under-represented in Educational Psychology. All communities we serve should have access to Educational Psychologists who come from those communities; for this to be a reality, we need to take positive action to address some of the structural barriers to training.
This event is aimed at individuals interested in training to become an Educational Psychologist (EP) who are currently under-represented. This may include, but is not limited to, those who have faced individual and/or systems challenges either currently or in the past: e.g., because of socio-economic inequity, discrimination on the basis of one or more protected characteristics (e.g., race, sex, disability, age, religion or belief, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, and sexual orientation), etc.
The event is an informal opportunity to hear from current students, alumni, tutors, fieldwork tutors and EPs employed by the Trust. They will share what their training experience in a working mental health trust has been like and their views on the role more generally. Ideally those attending will have also attended the open evening on Thursday 14th of October to get the most from the event.
Join us for a virtual course specific open evening, we have a number of events that you can pick from;
- Monday 15 November 2021 from 6-7pm
- Wednesday 17 November 2021 from 6-7pm
- Tuesday 23 November 2021 from 6-7pm
If you are interested in finding out more about this internationally renowned course that will allow you to qualify as a child and adolescent psychotherapist with eligibility for membership to the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP), then this is the event for you.
These open evenings will take place in the form of a discussion led by members of the M80 tutor team and current trainees who will provide you with an overview of the course, what to expect, and the application process. There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In order to get the most out of the evening we suggest preparing some questions you may want answered on the day.
