Catalyse is a not-for-profit social enterprise offering training, therapy and consultancy through a network of experienced therapists and trainers based across the North of England. We have developed as an organisation through a core group of colleagues working together for over twenty years since setting up the first North of England CAT Practitioner course. Catalyse functions in an open and accountable way and is overseen by an Executive Committee who agree direction and priorities, and co-ordinate Catalyse activities, on which particular Executive members lead. In addition, a larger network of Catalyse Associates provide services.
We need a CAT trained therapist to lead and develop the organisation of our CPD programme of events across the North.
Key aspects of the CPD lead role include:
- liaising with the CAT community to generate needs and ideas;
- including strategic thinking with the course team for a programme of consolidation events for post practitioner training;
- liaising with presenters and carrying through the planning, costing, advertising, delivery and evaluation of the programme with administrative support.
