Employment rate for graduates
- For people completing NHS training in 2022, of those who returned data 96.7% took up employment as a clinical psychologist (or in an equivalent post) within 12 months of graduating. This is in line with the rates for the previous 9 years which were between 92.0% and 97.0%.
