There are two types of scholarships available to NHS CAMHS staff applying to this programme:
As part of a strategy to increase psychological education and skills development across disciplines in CAMHS, NHS Education for Scotland (NES) provides funding for CAMHS practitioners working in NHS Scotland, in the form of scholarships.
There is a scholarship fund linked to the PGCert cyCBT. CAMHS practitioners working in NHS Scotland are eligible to apply for this fund towards the cyCBT Supervised Practice course.
The scholarship covers course fees but does not cover any additional supervision costs, which are usuallly met by the student's employer.
Applicants may apply for funding for one or more courses being studied for credit. Applicants for funding will be assessed by a panel who consider both scholarships.
