Nottingham City Educational Psychology Service is a dynamic, forward thinking service which delivers high quality psychology to support settings and CYP in our city.  Due to the success of our traded model and commissioning of project work, we are expanding our service and looking to recruit additional Educational Psychologists. 
                
We are a passionate team of EPs who take pride in what we do and care deeply about the children and young people in Nottingham City.  We use our psychological knowledge, training and skills to promote the best outcomes for all.
             
The majority of schools in the city purchase time from our highly valued service.  Our model of service delivery enables us to engage in a great deal of systemic and preventative work in schools.  We are fortunate to have fantastic opportunities to work with schools to employ an effective graduated response through city-wide initiatives such as our successful 'Routes to Inclusion (R2i)' project as well as ongoing training offerings such as the Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) training.  Our EPs value the wide ranging opportunities to work on and lead on these and other projects and initiatives.
         
As a team, we are committed to supporting citizens, schools and settings.  Psychology is at the heart of all we do and we believe that psychology can enable positive change.  We are focused on working towards thre inclusion and using our skills to bring people and ideas together.
      
Our psychologists are reflective practitioners who use creative problem solving to improve the lives of children and young people in Nottingham.  We are a warm and friendly team who value the contribution of all EPs in shaping the service.
          
Strengths of the Service:
1. We operate a consultation model of service delivery with a clear emphasis of creative problem solving.  However, EPs are also given the freedom to negotiate their use of psychology to best suit the context.
2. We use psychology in creative and dynamic ways.  We employ a range of psychological processes in our work such as PATHs/MAPs, Circle of Adults, Dynamic Assessment and more.
3. EPs are encouraged to develop areas of interest that are relevant to the service and contribute to the development of the service.
4. We have supportive systems in place for CPD, including delivery through team meetings.
5. Our supervision structure includes regular 1:1 supervision and peer supervision.
