Birmingham City Council Educational Psychology Service (Inclusion Support) receives many enquiries about shadowing/information visits from people who are thinking about applying for a place on the 3 year doctoral training programme, or more generally might be considering a career in educational psychology.
As a consequence, the Service has endeavoured to streamline such requests and has decided to put on an 'open afternoon' session again (having organised the first such event for the first time last year) for prospective applicants.
The session will comprise some short informal inputs from a range of perspectives e.g. University Tutor, Head of Service, Trainee EPs and EPs, followed by an opportunity to ask questions and talk with colleagues in more detail.
The event is wholly independent of Birmingham City Council’s recruitment and retention policy, aiming simply to provide an opportunity for prospective applicants to training to find out more about the profession and the requisite postgraduate professional training.
The event will be held at:
Inclusion Support Education Centre
Perry Common Road (on Wilson Stuart School campus site) Erdington
Birmingham B23 7AT
