HIEP Training

Education psychology training

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Educational Psychology (HIEP) provide training and workshop sessions delivered in schools and at central locations in the community, which can be purchased through a schools service level agreement or for a specified cost. Training offered by HiEP is divided into three key categories in order to support school staff and other interested service users to identify the courses that can best meet their needs and interests.

Introduces essential knowledge which will be helpful for all members of staff in all schools and many other practitioners working directly with children and young people.

Builds on existing knowledge. These courses are more detailed and are particularly useful for specific roles.


Focuses on children with complex needs and will be useful for specific circumstances.


HIEP also delivers a number of centre-based courses for Hampshire County Council Workforce Development Team (WDT). These courses are free of charge to staff in Children’s Services, and can be paid for by school staff. Some courses have pre-requisite requirements, for example completion of an introductory course.  Also, some courses are only available to people in specific job roles, for example designated teachers.

All our training is designed to lead to better outcomes for children and young people. We draw inspiration from the knowledge that learning and development depends upon a range of factors that work together. For instance, we know that happy children are happy learners. Our training is informed by the latest evidence and is refined in conjunction with feedback from course participants.

Ultimately, we share a common goal: to create better outcomes.

The list is not exhaustive of the training we offer but does represent training that is available across Hampshire.
