A Clinical Associate in Psychology Apprenticeship Journey – Jessica Delo

28 March, 2024

This week we are introducing you to Jessica Delo, a Clinical Associate Psychologist (CAP) working in Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust. Jessica recently completed a Level 7 Clinical Associate in Psychology (CAP) apprenticeship standard.

Clinical Associates in Psychology (CAP) provide high quality, evidence based psychological interventions to inform practice, with formulations derived from specialist psychological measurement and assessment tools to work with populations across the lifespan from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. They work with specific populations and therefore provide a more proscribed range of activities than HCPC registered practitioner psychologists.

“I think the CAP role has been fantastic in creating another direction for clinical psychology. It has created home grown practitioners who are skilled and confident in their practice, and who can contribute a huge amount to their teams.” Jessica Delo
