Anna Freud is a world-leading mental health charity for children, young people and their families. Our mission is to close the gap in wellbeing and mental health by advancing, translating, delivering, and sharing the best science and practice with everyone who impacts the lives of children, young people and their families. More information about Anna Freud is available on our website: www.annafreud.org/about-us/.
We value diversity and aim to have diverse workforce that reflects the community and our service users, in line with our vision, values and inclusion commitments. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.
The Seminar Leader will facilitate weekly term-time work discussion groups (approximately ten discussion groups per term, 30 per academic year), as part of the MSc Early Child Development and Clinical Applications (MSc Early Dev). This two-year MSc provides a comprehensive understanding of early child development (prenatal to 5 years of age), as well as how the early years impact later development. Psychoanalytic thinking is the primary organising approach but other theoretical and clinical perspectives are embedded throughout the teaching.
In Year 2, students attend a clinical placement three days a week from October to June. The placements are all at Anna Freud, NHS clinical services or charities and supervised by Child Psychotherapists or Clinical Psychologists. The Work Discussion Group (WDG) is a weekly space for students to meet and reflect on their learning and development in placements with the Group Facilitator.
The successful candidate will be qualified in a relevant field (please refer to the Job Profile), demonstrate experience in facilitating reflective practice discussions/groups with either staff or students/trainees and will have worked with children and families in early years in a range of settings.
The post-holder will sit in Anna Freud’s successful Education and Training Division and will have the opportunity to attend interesting talks and lectures within Anna Freud. In addition to employment at Anna Freud, the Course Tutor will also have an honorary contract at University College London (UCL), which is consistently ranked as one of the top ten universities in the world and is No. 2 in research power in the Research Excellence Framework 2021. This honorary contract will offer some UCL staff benefits.
