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. The core company values of integrity, freedom and contribution to society run through all aspects of our work, and our company aim is to help create a fairer, more ethical and more inclusive society.
Our educational psychology team is experienced and highly skilled (and many are former course directors, doctoral tutors, principal psychologists and senior EPs). We offer a very high level of EP training and support; regular joint development days; regular and ongoing supervision using a range of models and a variety of EP work across mainstream and specialist schools. We also have a team of Assistant Psychologists (APs) who successfully support the work of our EPs and schools.
We have a waiting list for our school based services, and 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 an educational psychologist
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 (RLDT) 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 EPs to use to keep developing their 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.
