Anna Freud is a world-leading mental health charity for children, young people and their families. Our mission is to close the gap in wellbeing and mental health by advancing, translating, delivering, and sharing the best science and practice with everyone who impacts the lives of children, young people and their families. More information about Anna Freud is available on our website:

We value diversity and aim to have diverse workforce that reflects the community and our service users, in line with our vision, values and inclusion commitments. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.

The Educational Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) programme is a one-year postgraduate diploma course and is part of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health training programmes (formerly CYP IAPT). The programme trains graduate entry mental health practitioners to work in educational settings offering help for common difficulties in children and young people including anxiety, low mood and behavioural difficulties, primarily with a focus on CBT-informed evidence-based guided self-help interventions.  The programme is a key part of the Green Paper proposals to increase the child mental health workforce.

In collaboration with University College London (UCL) as the degree awarding body, Anna Freud is recruiting a Practice Tutor to support the delivery of the EMHP programme.

The Practice Tutor will be expected to facilitate practice tutor groups, contribute to the training and support EMHP trainees in a variety of ways to develop their learning and practice as EMHPs. The post-holder will also contribute to teaching sessions, undertake marking, personal tutoring and other similar tasks to support the delivery of the programme.

The ideal candidate must have knowledge and experience of delivering CBT or CBT-informed interventions for low mood and anxiety as well evidence-based interventions for behavioural difficulties and have experience in inclusive facilitation of small group learning.

Please email with any job enquiries, or if you require assistance or experience difficulties when applying. Please note that successful candidate(s) will be asked to evidence their Right to Work in the UK post-job offer – we do not hold a sponsor licence therefore we are unable to provide Visa sponsorship.


Hybrid (a mixture of home/onsite working), the delivery of teaching and Practice Tutor Groups facilitation by the post-holder is almost all face-to-face. For face-to-face work, the post-holder will be required to attend in person at our London office (4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH).
