Applying for mental health or support work roles in educationWatch
At the moment I looking to apply for mental health and/or student support roles within the education sector (whether it is part of student support services within university or primary/secondary schools).
I have a BSc in Psychology, a Level 2 in Counselling Skills and a Level 3 in Counselling Studies. In the future I plan to continue my training and qualify by doing the Level 4 Diploma.
Can anybody advise me what kind of qualifications schools, universities or student unions look for/require for people applying for these sorts of roles?
A lot of schools are also slashing their support staff budgets due to funding cuts.
It might also be worth contacting student support at the uni you're at now and asking them for some careers advice and what they look for when recruiting.
Are you applying for jobs at the moment?
