Background and Summary of the Role

We are looking for an experienced qualified tutor/supervisor to work with students on our MA/PGDip Advanced Clinical Practice programme. This course is intended for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who want to update their knowledge, gain a higher-level qualification and reflect in-depth on their clinical practice. The theoretical teaching covers some of the most significant contemporary theories of psychotherapy, including relational psychoanalysis, attachment theory and neuroscience. Alongside increasing their theoretical knowledge, students are facilitated in developing their reflexive capacity in order to make productive and effective use of their own self-awareness and insight into therapeutic process...Students have the option to study for a PgDip or MA validated by Middlesex University.

The role will be to contribute to the teaching of the modules on the course, alongside the Head of Course, and, depending on numbers, to provide supervision, for a small group of students, of their work with a training client.

The course runs from January to December.  Year 1 is delivered in weekend blocks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The post holder will typically deliver one of the morning sessions (Friday or Sunday) and both the supervision sessions (Friday and Sunday afternoons). Saturday mornings are typically (though not always) a guest lecturer. As well as this there are some extra teaching days through the year. The exact teaching load, dates and times can be agreed after discussion at the interview. Year 2 of the course has up to six teaching days.

The role requires a commitment to supporting students who are also qualified practitioners in developing their theoretical understanding and capacity to work at depth.


The salary will be calculated depending on the numbers of hours teaching agreed. It will be based on contact hours and a day rate of £300, plus marking at £4 per 1000 words and attendance at an agreed number of meetings at £25.50 per hour. Pay will be on a PAYE basis, as part of a fixed term, casual contract from January 2020- December 2020.
