Clinical Education Development and Research (CEDAR)


Cedar degree apprenticeships present a unique opportunity to gain the knowledge and competencies to work as a psychological practitioner, with your training funded by your employer. Apprentices are full-time employees of their organisation, gaining a University of Exeter degree-level apprenticeship alongside work.

You will study within a centre of excellence for training in clinical and psychological therapies under the experienced leadership of Cedar clinical academics, many of whom have done the job. Direct supervision in your workplace will further develop your skills through applying them in the workplace.
