Working as a health psychology apprentice will improve your understanding of what it means to work in health psychology and permit you to develop subject-specific and generic professional skills. Supported by module staff, you will select a suitable psychologist to apprentice with. You will then work with them
one day a week for the entire semester. Your work as an apprentice will help you to develop generic professional skills, along with skills specific to one or more core health psychology domains of research, teaching, consultancy, and interventions. For example, you might assist with intervention development and testing, collaborate on research projects with other members of a research team, and/or act as a trainee teaching assistant. These activities will be agreed between the student and apprenticeship supervisor, and approved by the module co-ordinator, prior to commencement on the module.
