Course summary

This course gives you an excellent grounding in essential knowledge and skills for working in the field of children and young people’s mental health. Combining academic study with a clinical placement, you’ll gain direct experience of delivering cognitive-behavioural interventions to young people in NHS and/or school settings. You don’t need experience in the field of mental health to take this course.

The Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner Pathway is linked to a national initiative. Its aim are to:

  • increase access to psychological therapies
  • create a new children and young people’s mental health workforce.

This may result in some ‘recruit-to-train’ posts, where you’re employed by a local mental health service, with a salary and a fully funded place on the course as part of your employment. Any such posts will be advertised on NHS Jobs.

This course is offered in partnership with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, providing a range of mental health services across the South of England.

CAREERS

On this course, you’ll gain the right balance of knowledge, skills and clinical experience to secure employment within the mental health field.

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have created a Graduate Mental Health Worker job description specifically for graduates from the course. Increasingly, graduates are being recruited into Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner posts within the NHS.

We have strong links with child and adolescent mental health services providers across the South of England and are regularly approached to promote job opportunities to our students.
