    Welcome to Placement Providers The members of the teaching team at the University of the West of England thank you for your contribution to the training of Trainee Counselling Psychologists enrolled on the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. Our trainees placements are integral to their professional training and thus to our programme. We appreciate the support you offer to our trainees and to the programme, by offering placements and supervision within your organisation. We hope that your experience in supervising Trainee Counselling Psychologists will be both enjoyable and useful. We would welcome hearing from you about ways in which we can further develop our relationship with placement providers or about how to develop our programme generally. We wish to foster regular and positive contact between teaching team members and the placement organisation. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any suggestions about how we can better ensure our students are well prepared for their placements, ways in which we might improve the planning and delivery of our programme, or any other suggestions that would help us to maintain good contact between supervisors and the teaching team. We view our contact with you as central to ongoing efforts to consolidate and extend the programme. The information contained in this Handbook covers major areas of cooperation between supervisor, the university and the student. We hope you find it useful in clarifying expectations from all parties, including our ongoing commitment to support you. Thank you once again for accepting one of our trainees for placement and supervision.
