Training as a mental health professional

As a University Trust linked to Brighton and Sussex Medical School we provide medical study that is accompanied by broad clinical experience. We also partner with Brighton, Sussex, Surrey, Canterbury Christ Church, Southampton,  Chichester, and other Universities to deliver placement experiences for student nurses, occupational therapists and social workers, trainee psychologists, psychological therapists and others. In many cases we teach on the university courses, or have joint appointments of academic staff who work in both the Trust and the university.

We offer vocational qualifications, foundation training and internship programmes to support the development of careers in health and social care. For example, we offer work experience, the Certificate in Fundamental Care for health care assistants, placements and internships for psychology students and graduates.
