Educational psychology training

​Schools can commission bespoke training or development work directly from the Educational Psychology Service (as part of their SLA) or attend centrally organised training.

Educational psychologists can work with you on whole school development and improvement around special educational needs, emotional health and well-being and meeting the needs of vulnerable students.

They can also provide:

  • action-research projects and evaluation
  • support to involve and engage parents and carers and children and young people.
  • support to key staff
  • bespoke problem-solving, coaching and 
  • supervision to support staff well-being.

What training courses are on offer?

What do training courses cost?

Prices for the training course vary but all costs charged are required to achieve ‘full-cost recovery’ for the activity and will be kept to that minimum. Some training is without cost as it is grant-funded.
