CPD courses and resources

The Educational Psychology Group is firmly committed to the Continuing Professional Development of its staff, students and the profession. This is achieved through:

  • Leading Edge Psychology days. These days are organised on behalf of the four year groups on the DEdPsy programme and open to all EP practitioners. The next LE Day will be held on 19 April 2016 - click here for more information on forthcoming and previously held LE Days.

  • Developing Effective Leadership of Educational Psychology Services. This innovative 8 session CPD programme (3 hour per week) is aimed at Principal and Senior EPs who wish to review and develop their leadership skills and understanding in the fast changing environments in which Services find themselves, and will run for the second time in autumn 2015, further to its first successful run in spring 2015.

  • Mindfulness-Based Approaches for Working with Children and Young People. This 8 week (3 hour per week) part-time CPD course is open to professionals working in children's services, including social care, education and health, and commenced its second successful run in September 2014 but will not be running in 2015.

  • Phonological Awareness Training (PAT). The Educational Psychology Group funded and participated in the research which went into producing this valuable programme produced by Jo Wilson (Educational Psychologist, Buckinghamshire). PAT teaches children to read, spell and write phonically regular single syllable words by making analogies.

  • Autism e-learning CD. This electronic resource has been designed for educational psychologists wishing to develop their professional skills and knowledge when working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

  • Research and practice papers (RAPPs). These were a course component of the MSc Educational Psychology between 1996/7 and 2000/1. The purpose of RAPPs was to to provide an up to date summary for educational psychologist colleagues of a particular area in question which will be of real use in practice. The papers of each cohort are combined in one volume, and is available for purchase.
