Education Aims:  This module complements the taught ISO module in the second year with its emphasis on acquiring skill in an EBP approach other than generic CBT. The aim is for students to select a specialist area in which to further their skills, knowledge, and experience. Students on such a placement will develop expertise either in a specialised approach and/or a new area; or with a specialised client group or service setting that they intend to work with once qualified. In addition, this module ensures that students have acquired all the skills and competences needed to complete the requirements for registration with the HCPC and eligibility to be a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. Any remaining gaps in skills and experience will be identified and one of the placements planned to accommodate student needs and to ensure experience meets all the requirements for qualification. The exact components will be personalised for each student incorporating experience in working with individuals across the lifespan and range of abilities and with families, groups, systems and organisations in a range of settings in order to meet all the practical requirements for qualification.

Learning Outcomes:  All learning outcomes are met whilst acting to the highest professional standards consistent with guidelines and codes of practice set by the HCPC, BPS and employing Trusts.

In addition, any Learning Outcomes (knowledge and understanding, intellectual skills, professional and practical skills, and transferable skills) not covered in previous placement modules or not demonstrated with the full range of client groups and service settings.
