We are building our Educational Psychology Service.

It is an exciting time to join our team and lead the development of services in Solihull. You will be working in a vibrant, positive local authority where young people, schools and families value the contribution that Educational Psychologists make to outcomes for young people. We are at the beginning of our trading relationship with schools and are the primary provider of psychology in the Borough. As the Principal Educational Psychologist, you will have opportunities to develop the team in line with a socially inclusive agenda. There are opportunities to engage in many high profile projects, both nationally and across the borough. These include projects such as PREVENT, CSE and the exploration or the development of the use of WIKI sites for Solihull young people.

In addition to the opportunity to work in a supportive, integrated service that values professional autonomy and cutting edge practice, you will also benefit from our generous terms and conditions.

We are committed to promoting professional development at all levels. We value research and we will support colleagues to work towards publication of their research and professional practice.

Solihull SEND 0-25 Service is a friendly and highly supportive service where collaboration and peer supervision are actively encouraged.

You will have a post graduate qualification in Educational Psychology (or equivalent) and be HCPC registered with significant experience, including management experience, of working at a senior level in an Educational Psychology service.

For an informal discussion please contact Liz Egginton, Team Manager StART Team on or Ann Lowe Head of SEND on 01217046690
