Current trainees are employed as trainee clinical psychologists on a fixed term training contract for three years. A job description and person specification is available on our website. Under present arrangements, on entry to the programme all trainees are appointed at the start of Band 6 of the NHS AfC pay scale and progress in terms of increments on the basis of NHS terms and conditions which apply at the time. This applies even if trainees have previously been paid at a higher level in the NHS. The employing authority is Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, which is an Equal Opportunities employer.
University and college fees are currently paid in full by the Course. This is a reduced college fee with limited access to university resources. All places on the programme are funded by Health Education England and we do not accept self-funding candidates.

It is expected that there will be around 57 places in our annual intake for 2024. However, this is subject to final confirmation from our local commissioners.

The Isis Education Centre at the Warneford Hospital is normally the designated base. NHS travel expenses policy does not reimburse travel from home to base, however travel to placements is currently reimbursed subject to the NHS policy for mileage in excess of the usual home to base journey
