About the role

Babcock Learning and Development Partnership is seeking skilled, creative and enthusiastic Educational Psychologists to join our large and friendly service. We are expanding our teams due to high demand from Devon County Council and the success of our traded work.

We work in close partnership with Devon County Council to provide psychological services to all schools in Devon through specialist consultation, advice and support. Most schools in the county also commission us to provide traded services.

In addition, Devon County Council commissions a range of specialist work from us, for example to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and young people, including Children in Care, adopted children and their families. There are a number of initiatives in place to support the emotional health and wellbeing agenda and all EPs in the service have the opportunity to be involved in specialist areas of work. 

Having successfully been outsourced through a Joint Venture Partnership the contract is returning to Devon County Council in July 2022. The EPs will have an opportunity to be part of the wider conversations about the future of SEND and Inclusion in Devon and how we continue to improve outcomes for children through effective multi-agency working. 

Why should you come and work for us?

•    You will join a supportive and welcoming team, with access to high quality supervision
•    We have a reputation for innovative practice, with every EP having opportunities to be involved in specialist and project work
•    The service is very well regarded by schools as reflected in high levels of traded buy-in
•    Close links with the Doctoral training course at Exeter University
•    You will have access to CPD opportunities
•    We offer a competitive salary with a clear progression structure* 
•    IT support is excellent allowing remote and paperless working
•    Flexible working and home working is part of normal practice
•    Annual leave can be taken throughout the year
