    i believe both require spelling? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    ok talking police...from what i think, interviewing people comes right up from being a normal PC (police constable or "police woman") if you're the one that was arresting them in the first place

    you're thinking of CID (criminal investigation department - or "coppers in disguise" <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif">) which basically means you deal with differing crimes and dont go out on the beat

    And to get into CID you have to be a regular police woman first. Like MasterDevilish says you don't go on the beat, instead you're investigating specific crimes and you need a lot of experience in the police force before they can trust you to do it.

    well basically to be a councellor you will have to do a undergrad. degree in psychology and then a master specialising in counselling and therepy. first degree is generally not enough to do anything. if u want to do crime thingy then u cud do a degree in psychology and then a masters in criminology or forensic psychology. OR they mite let u in with some police experience but im not sure.

    i was thinking about educational psych. and to do that you need psych undergrad, psych masters and then a few years teaching experience.

    If u wanna do psychology @ uni, make sure the course is BPS approved otherwise it won't be worth much.

    hope that helped! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    There's a girl in my mirror
    I wonder who she is
    Sometimes I think I know her
    Sometimes I really wish I did <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/flowerface.gif"&gt;

    Id love to get into this line of work but unfortunatly dont think Ive got the brains or the qualifications to start with. I also have a nice medical record that Im sure would go down a treat if I ever went for a job in these areas (not lmfao!).

Im lost as to where the fuck I start <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">??? I really wanna do something around social work, or maybe work in a childrens home and stuff like that. Anyone got any ideas what I should do lmfao???
