"Since becoming a Principal Educational Psychologist, I have been struck by the way that PEPs are so generous in giving their time, support and friendship. This may well be because we are good at recognising a need and responding as well as we can - and I see that as one of the hallmarks of educational psychology.  I am looking forward to helping to ensure that NAPEP helps us to communicate, to share good practice and to support each other during the next two years."

Mark Hancock, May 2013

Our Purpose


NAPEP seeks to support, advise and influence the leadership of educational psychology services and supports the continuing development of our profession in order to achieve the most positive, inclusive outcomes for children, young people and their families.

Our Membership


An eligible principal educational psychologist is defined as: “the most senior qualified and registered Educational Psychologist actively managing a team of EPs - who are commissioned to work within a local authority - as all of or a part of their substantive role”. The title of the role is not a qualifying criterion.

There are no formal membership arrangements or subscriptions. All PEPs are entitled to involvement with and support from NAPEP as a community of peers and to have access to our email communication list, NAPEP-L.
