The “Guidance for Educational Psychologist (EPs) when preparing reports for children and young people following implementation of The Children and Families Act 2014”
– the publication of this document was requested by many EPs and by the Department for Education (DfE) in order to update and replace the “Guidance to Educational Psychologists (EPs) in preparing Statutory Advice to Children’s Services Authorities”. The previous guidance was used extensively within the EP profession and within the wider Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) field but needed to be updated to take into account the implementation of Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014 (including the SEND Code of Practice 2015 and associated regulations). The  document is of particular relevance to EPs commissioned by Local Authorities (LAs) to provide psychological advice for Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessments.
The production of the new guidance has been a collaborative exercise, undertaken by representatives from the Division of Educational and Child Psychology (DECP), Association of Educational Psychologists (AEP), Programme Directors (EP Initial Training) group and National Association of Principal Educational Psychologists (NAPEP), who are all part of the Joint Professionals’ Liaison Group (JPLG) for our profession. We acknowledge that many SEND pathfinders & colleagues in EPSs throughout the country will have their own specific local guidance, but we hope this document will be of use.
We would like to thank the many colleagues from the 4 groups that comprise the JPLG for all the work they have put into contributing to this guidance.

 Educational Psychology Workforce Survey - Report 2015

 This report highlights:

 •         continuing growing demand for Educational Psychologists
 •         part-time working - continuing to support staff flexibility
 •         bursary approach to fund Year 2 and 3 Trainee EP placements
 •         broad range of areas in which we apply psychology for children, young people and young adults
 •         market diversity with purchasing of services from LA EPSs
 •         significant number of vacancies for educational psychologist positions with Local Authority EPSs  

 PEPs might wish to share this report with Director of Children’s Services to draw attention to the range of our work, demand for EPs and recruitment
 issues.

 Further debate and guidance is required regarding private providers at regional and national level of NAPEP.

 If we are to make this an important source of data to inform Directors of Children’s Services, Local Authorities and Department for Education then let
 us all participate in our next workforce survey in 2016.

 On behalf of Ruth Illman and NAPEP Executive Committee

 With special thanks to Ann Ricketts (PEP Hertfordshire), Julia Hardy (PEP Kingston & Richmond) and Achieving for Children admin team for survey
 development and data report.
