Experiential Group Leader - MA Music Therapy

Call for Expressions of Interest – Experiential group leader MA Music Therapy Anglia Ruskin University.We are looking for an experiential group leader for the MA Music Therapy course at Anglia Ruskin University for the academic year 2022-2023.


This is an experiential training group, not group therapy. However, it is confidential and information is not shared with the course staff, unless there are exceptional safety concerns. There is no specific approach or model for this group. A range of approaches is possible, however it does need to be congruent with the theoretical foundations of the training, i.e. based on psychodynamic, developmental and neuroscience theories.


In normal circumstances this work takes place fortnightly on Mondays usually between 4.00 – 6.00pm with the whole cohort of second year music therapy trainees (18 for 2022-23). The location is the Jerome Booth Centre at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. There will be six fortnightly sessions between mid-September to mid December 2022 and seven sessions between mid-January to mid-May 2023. The group leader needs to be available at these times.


Pay is 2 hours per group at the hourly paid Associate Lecturer rate, which is £44.45 an hour, plus three hours per year at the meeting rate (£17.78). Please note we are unable to pay any weekly travel costs for Associate Lecturers. The hours are for one academic year in the first instance.

Application: Please submit:

1. A letter of application, maximum 2 sides A4, which should include:

  • How you see the experiential group contributing to the training, the purpose of the group,
  • Proposed model for running the group,
  • Any relevant training undertaken specific to groups etc.

2. A CV

Please also confirm that you are available at the required times.
