Educational Psychology Service

Applications are welcome from colleagues wishing to work either full time or part time.

Two of our most recently appointed Educational Psychologists have said that they enjoy working in Newcastle because…
• “I have the flexibility and freedom to use a variety of psychological approaches across my work and opportunities to develop specific interests and skills”.
• “It’s a really friendly and eclectic team who have a broad range of experience and skills and who are always approachable and supportive”.
• “There is a diversity of work across different settings and lots of opportunities for traded and systemic work”
• “There is support and encouragement from management and peers to develop my practice, ethically, psychologically and meaningfully”.

If this sounds like a service you would like to join, then we invite you to apply for the posts below…

These posts will involve a range of work, both at a statutory level and at preventative and early intervention levels. The service is highly valued by schools and settings and has a very high level of requests for traded work. These posts represent an increase in service capacity, which will allow us to further develop our non – statutory offer to children, young people, families and schools.

Applications are welcome from both fully qualified colleagues and doctoral trainee Educational Psychologists who are due to finish their training course in the summer 2020.

Successful candidates will join a highly regarded team, currently consisting of 12.4 FTE EPs. The Service is currently developing an action plan based on a PATH analysis of our strengths and aims for the future. The plan is focused on widening the potential impact of educational psychology within the People Directorate and has given greater scope for all EPs to focus on an area of personal interest. The Service has good links with Newcastle University and currently hosts two doctoral trainees.

Applicants must be professionally qualified and registered with the HCPC
