Applications for our Associate Tutor Programme are now open

Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy is delighted to continue the scheme for UKCP registered or BACP Accredited counsellors and psychotherapists who are who wish to gain experience as a tutor and potentially work with Matrix in the future. This is an opportunity to learn skills and gain experience in group management, training adult learners, consolidating and teaching counselling theory and supporting students to develop their integrative framework. By participating in this programme you will gain CPD hours.

Anyone interested is asked to apply and selection will be by interview. Successful applicants will observe and assist in two-day weekend or weekday teaching units with group exercises as well as directly supporting students with feedback and guidance during experiential elements of learning; specifically during triads. There will be opportunities to work with different tutors across different year groups. Tutors will retain responsibility for all teaching elements and group training, as well as any decisions about the group or individual students. Tutors will work in collaboration with the associate tutor and aim over time to build their skills and experience to work independently. Associate tutors will need time to liaise with the tutor before and after each training unit and allow time to familiarise themselves with the weekend material. Attendance at meetings is not required.

Associate tutors will observe teaching on either the Year 1, 2 or 3 weekday and weekend teaching programme in Wymondham. Weekday teaching will be on Thursday and Friday between 9:30 – 5:15pm and weekend teaching will be on Saturday and Sunday between 9:30 – 5:15pm. Associate tutors are required to arrive 30 mins before the teaching begins. Please make clear on your application if you are unable to fulfil any aspect of the training programme.

Successful applicants will need to agree to comply with all relevant policies, procedures and guidelines of Matrix College.

Requirements include:

  •  A sound theoretical knowledge of relational integration
  •  A commitment to become familiar with the material of each module
  •  The ability to apply theory to learning about clinical practice
  •  Readiness to contribute to student and tutor discussions
  •  A willingness to familiarise yourself with the Programme Handbook
  •  The ability to work in a team and foster good working relationships.
