Hiya!

I'm a PBS practitioner at a special needs school and have came the psychology route to education.
I work with a specialist team hired by the council to support children at risk of losing their placements due to behaviour that challenges.

This is also my first year of applying and I hope to meet others too!

I'm hoping to apply to Bristol, UEA and Southampton.

Best wishes to everyone!

Laura

Hi Laura,

Thanks for sharing - sounds like a really interesting role! I'm currently the Assistant SENCO and Deputy Head of Social Sciences at my school. I would quite like to remain in London so looking mainly at UEL, UCL, the IOE and the Tavistock and Portman although I am going to attend the Southampton virtual open evening on 23rd September. Can't believe how quickly everything has come around... applications open on Wednesday!

Gosh you are all so experienced! I've just started a TA role at an SEN in London so I'm hoping to start my 'string' of applications next year or after (string because I suspect getting accepted might be like testing for a driving license... 4th time lucky!). Did you guys get into any of your uni choices? Or have you found out about whether you got into the interview round? I'm wondering if you could give me some advice because my current TA role (although extremely rewarding and possibly full good things to talk about with regards to psychological theory for my PS) I'm worried might not be diverse enough as experience, nor might it be considered proper/relevant teaching experience.I'm just about to start an MSc in child and adolescent mental health- hoping to learn more about relevant theory.... and am working full time at the SEN primary. Also...any thoughts on clinical psychology as an alternate career to psych ed?

Hi Everyone. I'm applying - and like you tiggypage I'm a little intimidated by other applicants' qualifications and experience! I think they accept a pretty diverse range of people into the courses though, so I'm just going to focus on putting my doubts aside and doing my best on the personal statement. I'm an experienced primary teacher with a particular career focus on small group and individual tuition (both in schools and privately). I have worked about equally in classroom teaching and tuition / interventions over the past decade or so. I am a total psychology nerd and it's absolutely embedded in my practice. However, I do not have any additional psych. qualifications, just my BSc 14 years ago and my primary PGCE about 11 years ago. I also haven't held any posts like SENCO etc. It seems like other people have a lot more going for them on paper. So yeah, hoping to shine in the personal statement.The part I'm finding hardest to navigate is choosing a 'academic reference' when I have not engaged in any formal study courses in a long time. I highly doubt that tutors will remember me from so long ago. Even if they did, I'm not the same person I was. My best bet is my NQT supervisor - waiting to hear from her at the moment. Good luck to all!
