COSCA Certificate Trainer Recruitment New


The Department of Psychology at Glasgow Caledonian University is seeking to recruit trainers to deliver the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills. Prospective candidates should have experience of running the COSCA certificate course and hold, or be working towards, trainer accreditation. They will work under the supervision of the programme leaders. We are also inviting expressions of interests from people wishing to assist on the programme with the goal of progressing to future trainer accreditation.


The programme runs a number of times each academic year and, in the first instance, we are looking for trainers who can deliver from February 2019. The delivery format includes evening sessions (one weekday evening per week) and some Saturday daytimes. There is some flexibility in the scheduling.


This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a vibrant multi-cultural modern university in the centre of Glasgow. The programme is part of our University’s commitment to the Common Good and core values of integrity, creativity, responsibility and confidence. The Department of Psychology is an ambitious and growing academic unit. Alongside the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills, we deliver a number of high quality programmes in applied psychology. These include the BPS accredited BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology, MSc Forensic Psychology and three BPS accredited/HCPC approved Doctorates in Counselling Psychology, Health Psychology and Sport and Exercise Psychology. 


As the University for the Common Good, we are committed to embedding equality and diversity, as well as our values in everything that we do.  As such, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates who demonstrate the GCU Values of Integrity, Creativity, Responsibility and Confidence.
