Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Course overview: This course includes an integrated foundation year, ideal if you don’t have the appropriate subjects and/or grades to go straight into year one. The course provides you with an opportunity to develop specific knowledge of the core psychology curriculum prescribed by the British Psychological Society (BPS) while developing an awareness of the clinical skills needed for practice. Designed and developed by qualified clinical and chartered psychologists, the course includes an introduction to the four key areas of clinical psychology; adult, child, older adult and learning disability. You practice clinical skills around assessment and formulation and complete a number of work-related initiatives, designed for the role of assistant psychologists, psychological wellbeing practitioners and other junior psychologist roles. Alongside the clinically-relevant aspects of your work, you develop your skills as an academic psychologist and gain transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, organisational skills and personal development planning.
Please note this course does not qualify you to work independently as a clinical or practitioner psychologist.
After the course: Although this is an academic course rather than a professional training course, the skills and knowledge developed are particularly suited to prepare you for postgraduate study to begin your journey to become a Chartered Psychologist in any area of psychology. To work towards a career as a chartered psychologist you need to complete BPS and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) recognised qualifications at postgraduate level. You can also enter a broad range of careers including health and social welfare, voluntary organisations and the public sector.
All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree. Our staff use their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. We also offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third years that equip you with both degree level subject knowledge plus the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits.
