Course content

This course will equip you to work as an educational psychologist in local authority children’s services, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), voluntary agencies or independently.

It meets both the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) standards and the Division of Educational and Child Psychology – British Psychological Society (DECP) criteria for three-year training.

We are driven by our determination to work towards social justice for vulnerable young people and their families and for children with special educational needs, and to advocate for their rightful place in society.

We are looking for mature psychology graduates who are seeking to extend their love of and use of psychology, with a minimum of two years’ experience working with children or young people in paid employment.

In recent years, around half of our students have previously trained as teachers, while other professions represented have included classroom assistants, mental health and clinical practitioners, youth workers and social workers.
