Training with us

Why Plymouth?

The Plymouth course is known for its values of inclusion and social justice, systemic perspective, and community-focused approach. As a team our approach is supportive, and strengths based. We are also fortunate to be located in Britain’s Ocean City in the heart of one of the most beautiful parts of the country, which is only a three-hour train journey from London. Although our cohort size has increased it is still one of the most compact with approximately 24 places which means teaching sessions can be highly interactive and trainees get to know each other well.

Don’t take our word for it though, read what our trainees say in the BPS Alternative Handbook;

“I feel Plymouth take the approach of trying to develop you as an individual into the best clinician you can be, rather than attempting to mould everyone into the same type of clinician" (2022)""I feel lucky to have trained at Plymouth – with a qualitative focus, focus on inequalities, social justice and community psychology – this is a course that suits me" (2021)

"The staff are supportive, teaching is great, life outside psychology and individuality are valued, and the South West is a brilliant place to live" (2020)

"Lots of laughter and warmth" (2020)
