Many clinical psychology training programmes are considering developing contextual recruitment processes, and we have recently circulated a survey on their behalf to everyone who applied for the 2021 intake. This is based on evidence that contextualising individuals’ achievements using additional information about their educational, social and economic background can lead to fairer and more inclusive selection processes. In particular, this information could help course centres to recognise individuals with strong potential for success at doctoral level and within the profession, who otherwise might not have been identified. For more information about the survey please see the Data Protection and Privacy section of this website.
Our Board of Management have spent considerable time in the last year or so discussing the rates of our fees. The Board was in full agreement to increase our application processing fees in 2020, both to applicants and to course centres. We have now agreed to maintain our fees at the same rate in 2021. We are aware that any consideration of the fees charged to applicants is sensitive given the important context of widening and increasing access to the profession of clinical psychology.
The Clearing House is a charitable institution which continues to face significant financial challenges and the Board of Management has a responsibility to secure the viability of the institution for the future. We as a Board are committed to keeping the costs to all parties as low as possible. We will continue to review the fees each year to ensure that these are kept as low as we can maintain them, whilst ensuring the viability of the charity, but also ensuring we can take new work forward. For further information, please see our Processing Fee page.
