Educational Psychology training

A wide range of training and development opportunities are available to schools and other organisations as part of the overall CPD strategy. See our educational psychology services brochure.

Some of this training is brokered by the Local Authority and is delivered through conferences or local events. Additionally, many schools use time from the Educational Psychology service as part of the Service Level Agreement to meet their own training and development needs.

Training is always negotiated and tailored to specific needs. We also provide follow up work with a view to helping new initiatives become embedded in practice.
