Director of Studies - PGCertHE (Teaching and Learning in Counselling and Psychotherapy)
The Metanoia Institute wishes to appoint a senior academic with considerable experience in managing academic programmes at post-graduate level. The person appointed must be capable of overseeing the complete student experience from recruitment, teaching, assessment, supervision through to graduation.
This is an exciting and pioneering programme, the first dedicated qualification in the teaching and learning of the psychological therapies. Training in counselling, psychotherapy and applications of the psychological therapies requires trainers/ lecturers to have specific, highly specialised, skills in facilitating the development of self-awareness, reflexivity, and the therapeutic use of self in participants in order that they are able to reach the competence requirements for professional practice to work at depth in the therapeutic relationship and therapeutic process. Therefore, a discipline specific training/teaching qualification that addresses the planning, creation and facilitation of curriculums and experiential learning forums to support the development of these skills/ attributes alongside robust theoretical knowledge and ethical professional practice seems a natural development.
Metanoia Institute has a long-established reputation as a Centre of Excellence in the teaching of counselling, psychotherapy and the psychological therapies and so this innovative new programme is a natural development within this setting. We are seeking a highly motivated and innovative Director of Studies to carry the programme forward.
