Psychology and Clinical Skills - Teesside University

**Summary**: This innovative psychology and clinical skills degree is your opportunity to develop specific knowledge of the core psychology curriculum prescribed by the British Psychological Society (BPS) while developing an awareness of the clinical skills needed for practice. **Course details**: You develop your skills as an academic or practitioner psychologist and gain a broad range of transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, organisational skills and personal development planning skills. As a psychology and clinical skills student, you cover all of the core modules included in the BSc (Hons) Psychology programme, in addition to specific modules relevant to developing clinical skills. **After the course**: Although this is an academic course rather than a professional training course, the skills and knowledge developed are particularly suited to prepare you for postgraduate study to begin your journey to become a Chartered Psychologist in any area of psychology. To work towards a career as a chartered psychologist you need to complete BPS and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) recognised qualifications at postgraduate level. You can also enter a broad range of careers including health and social welfare, voluntary organisations and the public sector. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree. Our staff use their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. We also offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third years that equip you with both degree level subject knowledge plus the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits.
