Centrally Held Courses and Bespoke Packages
The Educational Psychology Service is able to support your training needs with regard to a wide range of developmental issues from birth to early adulthood, including special educational needs.
Needs led section:
As a service we recognise that School budgets have been cut and schools are beginning to migrate to local community groups. In response to this we are offering Needs Led training that can be delivered more locally to groups of schools at a much lower cost that our centrally held courses.
We have already had interest in this approach to training with local courses being run that have been designed based upon local needs of the schools and their community.
We are finding that this model of delivery appears more ethically grounded because schools can work together more closely during and after the training to support implementation of new ideas. Schools are then further supported by their visiting Educational Psychologist through individual casework or systems work to further embed the learning. We are also making the training more affordable for schools with lower budgets with two twilight sessions being run for around £50 a delegate.
As a service we have many strengths and the new needs led model utilises the specialist knowledge of EPs within each team, meaning that you have access to a broad and varied set of skills and specialist knowledge. All you simply have to do is identify training needs within your school and we can help make the links with other schools who have similar needs
If you are interested in being involved in the needs led courses within your area then please speak with your Visiting Educational Psychologist.
