Due to increasing demand for our traded and local authority work Warwickshire County Council are looking to recruit more educational psychologists.

Warwickshire Educational Psychology Service (EPS) is a community focussed service, which strives for inclusion by removing barriers. We have continued to grow and further develop our offer and have maintained our well-founded reputation for supporting settings and other services.

We are a large, vibrant, and strong service of over forty EPs. Each team is led by a Senior Educational Psychologist. The breadth and range of work undertaken across the service is hugely varied. We contribute and take a lead in a range of strategic initiatives within the Local Authority such as:

Senior Mental Health Lead Training
Attachment Aware and Trauma Informed Schools Projects
Emotional Based School Avoidance Pathway
Building Inclusive Schools Project
Literacy for All Project

We have very successfully developed a range of flexible working practices and all EPs are issued with a Surface Pro to support this.
