The Doctorate in Educational Psychology (EdPsyD) is a full-time postgraduate training programme that is three years in length. Upon completion, you will hold the recognised qualification in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to become an Educational Psychologist.
Based in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning, this doctoral training programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Upon successful completion of this three-year, full-time programme, trainees will be eligible to apply for HCPC registration and, upon admittance to the Register, practise as an Educational Psychologist. Trainees will also be eligible to apply for Chartered Membership of the BPS.
The newest of only 13 programmes in England, this Department for Education funded programme was established to meet demand for qualified Educational Psychologists in the East of England. Upon competition of this rigorous initial training, you will have the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver high quality, evidence-based psychological services to children and young people from birth to 25-years-old within education, community and Children’s Services systems.
Trainees will be exposed to a broad range of psychological theory which is framed within the principles of critical psychology, critical pedagogy and social justice. The programme places an importance on equality and diversity and promotes inclusion and anti-discriminatory practices to serve the needs of children, young people and their families. Upon completion of your training you will be able to critically analyse and synthesise complex psychological and educational information and, through the application of consultative, intervention and assessment models, have a positive impact on the lives of children, young people and their families.
The Doctorate in Educational Psychology (EdPsyD) provides an integration of theory, research and practice. We achieve this through a mixture of taught sessions, experiential groups, problem-based learning, discussion, debates, professional practice placements and research projects.
