All places on the programme are NHS funded via the Welsh Government / Llywodraeth Cymru.

There are currently no self-funded places on the programme for either home or overseas fees status applicants.

Trainees are recruited annually, and 29 training places were commissioned by the Welsh Government in 2024. Workforce data for Wales indicates a need for expansion in Clinical Psychology training and the Welsh Government has invested significantly in the infrastructure of the training programme.

Current trainees are employed on NHS Wales agenda for change contracts: Band 6 Trainee Clinical Psychologists.

Travel and necessary accommodation and subsistence expenses are reimbursed according to Agenda for Change rules, and University registration and examination fees are paid.

Each trainee has access to additional funds to support research (£600) and personal development (£800).  Access to these funds is dependent on an appropriate justification being put forward.

Training contracts are for a period of three years and are offered on the strict understanding that applicants will submit themselves for assessments linked to the programme and maintain their registration for the programme.
