Come and work with us
The Educational Psychology Service here in Devon is a well-established, lively and thriving EP community! We’re made up of EPs at all stages of our career who have a passion for using and applying psychology to make a difference in educational contexts. We enjoy working together and strive to serve our learning communities better at all time.
One other important thing that we have in common is that we all love and appreciate the beautiful county of Devon - and living in the varied warm hearted communities to be found here.
Recently we’ve been joined by EPs who have re-evaluated their working and home lives through the Covid-19 pandemic and have been re-invigorated by the changes they’ve been able to make by living and working in Devon.
So if you are thinking of making a move - or don’t want to miss out on working as part of a vibrant EPS with plans to do more - here’s some comments from EPs made at our recent service day in answer to the question: “Why come and work with us?”
