An opportunity has arisen to join this friendly, established service consisting of 30FTE Educational Psychologists within the beautiful county of Derbyshire. Derbyshire has experienced a much lower increase in EHC needs assessments than the national average, allowing us to focus on early intervention and preventative work. EPs are given protected time to work on the service, supporting our commitment to distributed leadership and innovation. We are a strong, supportive service committed to making a difference to children and young people. We have positive and well established links within the local authority and other services and trade with over 90% of schools with whom we maintain good working relationships. We are valued for the impact of the high quality casework, training, therapeutic work and research which we carry out to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and young people.

 We are looking for talented colleagues to bring their enthusiasm and skills to the service and embrace our core values of respect, integrity, collaboration and kindness. Successful candidates will enjoy excellent CPD opportunities, access to regular supervision, dedicated administrative support and good pay progression. The service has excellent links with regional training courses and provides a comprehensive induction process to ensure a warm welcome to all new starters.

Applications are welcome from fully qualified EPs looking for new challenges and those in their final year of training. All qualified candidates must be registered to practice with the Health and Care Professionals Council. We have a 0.6 FTE post available at our Denby office. If you would like to find out more about the service or to arrange a visit to one of the bases please call Deborah Page, PEP on 01629 536850 or Kathryn Pomerantz, DPEP 01629 536856.  

Provisional Interview Date: 5 Feb 2019
