Job Description

Educational Psychologist roles in London

EdPsychs provide educational psychology services to schools across London and beyond. We have been successfully supporting schools since 2008, and we aim to offer a quality first model of service delivery to embed educational psychology across the whole school community. 

Our educational psychology team is experienced and highly skilled (and many are former course directors, doctoral tutors, principal psychologists and senior EPs) and we do everything up to a standard rather than down to a time scale.

At present, we support schools within the mainstream and specialist sector.  

We have a range of employment and consultancy contracts for HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologists working as educational psychologists who:

  • Want to work for an established, forward thinking psychology service who aim to support schools and society
  • Have excellent social skills and the ability to apply psychology across our whole school model
  • Have kept up to date with their CPD around evidence based practice and can complete training, coaching, mentoring and both qualitative and quantitative assessments accurately and fluently
  • Are keen to learn and develop as a psychologist 

We offer a high level of EP training and regular joint development days; regular and ongoing supervision using a variety of models and EP work within carefully selected schools. EPs who supervise and support APs also receive additional and specialist training, and we enrol you on the BPS two day supervision course and provide additional training and support in this area too. 

Our EPs are exceptional and we are a rapidly expanding company. As such, we have the following positions available:

  • 0.4 EP contract
  • 0.6 EP contract
  • 0.8 EP contract
  • 1.0 EP contract

All of these entry level contracts start at £55,000 a year or pro rata thereof with 11 weeks holiday (in school holiday time) and the 0.6 contracts and above may provide future opportunities to work on the EdPsychs Research, Leadership and Development Team which develops our work at a wider level (and RLDT roles start at £62,000 a year and progress up to £70,000 per year (or pro-rata thereof)) with a £2000 a year annual additional training budget which we expect you to use to keep developing your wider psychological skills). All the usual pension and employment benefits apply. 

We also have a range of consultancy opportunities available across London at our usual rates of £450 a day. As we provide so much initial training, supervision and support there is a minimum 60 days per year commitment for consultancy roles.

To be eligible to apply, you must be a HCPC registered Practitioner psychologist with at least three years experience working as an educational psychologist in the UK. To apply, simply send a copy of your CV to Tereza Matysova, Operational Director of EdPsychs at enquiries@edpsychs.com with your answers to the following questions:

  • How would you support an anxious, demotivated Year 7 student who is finding it hard to write?
  • What is the most impactful EP training you have ever delivered and why?
  • When have you made the biggest difference in a school?
  • How would you contribute to EdPsychs?

If your answers are interesting, psychological, evidence based and forward thinking we will invite you to interview. If successful, you will advance to the next stage of the interview process which is completing two practice cases. If you progress through this stage successfully too, we will offer you an employment or a consultancy contract.

You can learn more about some of what we do at www.edpsychs.com.

EdPsychs are an equal opportunities employer. If you require any reasonable adjustments at interview, please let us know in advance.
