If you are looking for an exciting and fulfilling role as an Educational Psychologist then look no further than Summit Psychology Services! We are an independent and multidisciplinary team, dedicated to holistically supporting children, young people, families, schools, virtual schools, social care, and other agencies in Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent, and surrounding areas.

At Summit Psychology Services, we firmly believe that every child and young person can be empowered and supported to accomplish whatever they desire to achieve. The inclusion, achievement, growth, wellbeing, and happiness of children and young people is at the heart of everything that we do.

As an HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist with eligibility for, or already achieving chartered status (CPsychol) with the British Psychological Society (BPS), you will play a key role in providing consultation services to designated schools, working with a team of experienced, passionate Educational Psychologists, trauma and play therapists, and a systemic behaviour consultant.

You will have the opportunity to draw from a range of paradigms, theory, evidence bases, and consultation models to support and guide educational communities and parents, individual children, and young people through a process of change. You will need fantastic interpersonal skills, be able to exercise integrity, and be able to autonomously deliver psychological services that meet the needs of service users.

In addition to flexible working hours, attractive rates of pay, autonomy in your practice, and opportunities to contribute to service development, we offer no expectation to work weekends or over school holidays. We provide peer supervision, CPD opportunities, onsite training and supervision facilities open to all of the team to use, office space, administrative support, and the opportunity to work in a warm and supportive multidisciplinary team. As an independent service we are not required to fulfil statutory duties releasing you to reach your full potential.

If you have skills, knowledge, and applied practice in supporting ACE’s, SEMH, and care experienced children and young people, we would love to hear from you as these are areas of specialism that the team has. Additional qualifications as Registered Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS) with the BPS are also highly desirable skills.

 

We have a strong training record, and this role is likely to include Excellent ELSA training, supervision, and other training packages. Consequently dynamic and inspiring practitioners are sought to enable the continued support and growth of our training and research communities.

If you can start working with us part-time and flexibly in the Summer and Autumn Term 2023, or beyond, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please email support@summitpsychologyservices.co.uk, including your contact details and a current CV. For an informal conversation, email support and we will schedule time to talk with you. Help us to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people in our educational communities!
