You do not have to answer this but just wondering what qualifications people have to teach psychology? Are we all first degree holders in the subject or what? The reason I ask is because I am a bit down. I didnt apply for a couple - three in fact - posts last year because I thought I wouldnt be good enough. Now I am looking at who got the jobs. One school employed a bloke whose only psych qualification appears to be a diploma in hynotherapy. Another a woman who I have met before in a different incarnation and she was a " humanist" then because she couldnt do research methods and stats ( I taiught her psych and she was not good!) and the third is a woman with a cert ed and a counselling certificate. I have a Ph.D in psychology. I am a clinically trained psych. I have a first degree in psychology. So why am I unemployed , cant get a job and they have jobs?
