Hampshire and Isle of Wight Educational Psychology (HIEP) provide training and workshop sessions that can be delivered in schools and other education settings, at central locations in the community, and virtually. These can be purchased through a school or setting's Service Level Agreement (SLA) or for a specified cost.
If you would like more information about what is available in your area, please contact your local HIEP office or speak to your SLA link Educational Psychologist. Information about new courses can also be found on our Twitter page.
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.
Here are details of some training sessions that are currently available:
- Five ways to wellbeing for staff in education settings
- Understanding and managing worries and anxiety
- Supporting children who have experienced trauma
- Loss and bereavement
The list is not exhaustive of the training we offer but does represent training that is available across Hampshire.
