At Sussex Partnership we offer a range of support to our Psychological Professions to help them progress their career with us. The Psychological Professions includes a large number of different professions, and a number of new roles. It can be very confusing to know what the difference is between each of them. For further info please see the columns below.

The Psychological Professions Network (PPN) also have a career map which can be found here.

Hear from Louisa Bravery, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, about what it was like for her when she joined the Trust during the pandemic...

Meet Michael Rolt, Clinical Psychologist. Here Michael talks about what inspired him when looking at joining the Trust, and how our values aligned with his own...

'I remember being on placement  in SPFT and finding the teams I worked with so friendly, compassionate, and always going the extra mile to support me when I needed it. When I was thinking about where to work returning to SPFT was therefore a no-brainer for me as I always felt so supported and valued by the people I worked with. It also didn't hurt that Sussex is a lovely part of the country to live in with lots of green space, sea, and so much going on!"

- Robin, Clinical Psychologist

People having a break


At Sussex Partnership, we are committed to providing ongoing training and CPD to ensure our staff are continually learning and developing their careers. This takes a variety of forms, including mandatory training, professional training and clinical skills. A variety of course lengths are available, as well as a range of formats – courses may involve workshops, webinars and/or university training courses.

Some of our training is appropriate for those already registered as a Practitioner Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Psychological Therapist; other training can be undertaken by those in pre-registration, or for those developing skills to work as a Practitioner Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Psychological Therapist.

We spoke with Victoria Bonnet, Clinical Psychologist, about her CPD experience at Sussex Partnership...


Newly Qualified

We understand that working as a psychological professional means lifelong learning, and a particularly important period of learning and consolidation happens immediately after you qualify. When entering a new role, you may need to develop new skills – such as managing a full caseload, or supervising others. We will support you to learn these skills by providing you with regular professional supervision and development opportunities, including in house or regional conferences, or events relevant to your role. 

Within your first 18 months in a role with us, we also aim to provide you with training to become a supervisor. You will also be offered free membership to the Psychological Professions Network across Kent, Surrey and Sussex, which provides continuing professional development events and can connect practitioners with similar interests.
