Blue Smile uses an arts based therapeutic model to help children and young people to regulate their emotions and organise their thoughts.
Ideally, we look for applicants who are in at least the second year of a level 6 course (or equivalent) in counselling or therapy with children.
However, we do consider applicants at an earlier stage of training but who have significant therapeutic experience of working with children in relevant settings.
A Blue Smile therapist clinical placement offers:
• Experience of working as part of a team in a school
• Clinical hours
• Training and continuing professional development
• Contribution towards supervision
School clinical leads will provide on-going support and guidance throughout the placement.
Therapist clinical placement volunteers will be required to have an interview, enhanced DBS (criminal record) check, references and an induction.
Our placements involve a minimum of half a day once a week in term time, ideally for a commitment of at least one academic year. The work may be both short and long term, depending on an assessment of need on referral.
We make a contribution towards your individual supervision, as well as training and career development opportunities.
