Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we’ve developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.
We’re one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space and rapid transport connections into the heart of the City.
Redbridge Educational Psychology Service (EPS) is looking to recruit talented and enthusiastic Assistant Educational Psychologists (AEPs) to work in our dynamic and supportive team. We are a consultation service who promote evidence based models with a relational approach. We are a well-established team of Educational Psychologists (EPs) who are committed to achieving positive outcomes for children and young people in diverse and often challenging situations.
Successful applicants will benefit from the support of a friendly, supportive, well-established team who meet regularly to share practice and enable whole team development. Applicants will receive an induction programme tailored to their needs, supportive peer and individual supervision, and an annual service CPD programme.
In the second year of this post, there is opportunity for progression to a senior AEP role, which includes opportunities to lead projects, be involved in action research and to have areas of responsibility, as well as dedicated support for applying for the doctorate EP course.
Redbridge is situated in the North East of London offering the advantages of rapid transport to Central London and easy access to the M11. Our office is based in a newly built Children’s Resource Centre in a scenic location, west of the borough. This is close to a Central Line tube station. We are a well-resourced EPS and EPs in Redbridge have the use of laptops with internet connection when out of the office.
The team promotes working in a range of different ways to apply psychology through consultation, assessment, evidence-based intervention, systemic work and training. In Redbridge we believe that we are an innovative service that responds directly to our local needs. We have all collaborated on a number of projects surrounding our response to the Coronavirus pandemic and continue to adapt our ways of working.
All of our AEPs work across both the EPS as well as in our specialist team, Redbridge Educational Wellbeing Team (REWT), which supports emotional wellbeing and mental health across the Local Authority. The REWT team also hosts a Mental Health Support Team (MHST) and we all work closely together as sub teams within the EPS.
Interview dates to be confirmed.
Please note interviews will take place face to face in a Redbridge location.
Ambitious for Redbridge
