Improving employability: summary of current initiatives

A recent article summarising current initiatives in the area of employment and employability.

Dr Maureen McIntosh (Chair Elect) and Dr Helen Nicholas (Chair) have written an article summarising current initiatives to address member concerns in the area of employment and employability.

Much of the hard work occurs at the policy level but has a direct effect on the employment opportunities of members (eg listing NHS jobs by competency so that all applied psychologists can apply for roles). More details can be found in their article entitled "Dispelling the myths about Counselling Psychologists and challenging discrimination".
