Work Experience Program

2018 Work Experience Program OPEN

At the Sydney Cognitive Development Centre we run a work experience program on a 6 months basis. The program combines both research and clinical work experience.

Qualifications: Work experience available for students who are currently (1) in their 2nd year, 3rd year or Honours of an undergraduate psychology program, (2) completing a Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science, or (3) finished Honours and wanting to gain clinical experience for the Master’s program.
Time commitment: Must be able to commit to a minimum of 8 hours a week- flexible days and times (1 day per week, Monday- Saturday)
Role: To help with supporting psychological assessments and therapy processes by helping our numerous psychologists in the background scene. This role will also involve numerous research projects and helping prepare parent handouts and resources for use in the clinic. At times there may be some patient interaction as you may be able to participate in our clinical and training workshops.
Skills: Must be comfortable around young children, have good organisational skills, excellent computer skills, and be highly reliable.

This position is unpaid and voluntary. All training will be provided at no charge. These positions are highly coveted by undergraduate students as work experience is one of the main criteria looked at when applying for Master’s positions and referees are essential.

Interviews: Interviews will take place on the 12th January. Applicants who are shortlisted from the interview may be eligible for clinical training in neurofeedback if the applicant also wants to apply for one of our paid neurotechnican positions.
