NAPEP Annual Course 2018

'Values in Leadership for Principal Educational Psychologists' - Principled Psychologists?

Friday 11th May 2018 at Hilton York

The purpose of our annual CPD meeting is to:

  • explore the role of values in the leadership of public sector organisations
  • consider how to keep teams engaged in time change and transition
  • consider what fairness and equality mean in systems with core and traded services?
  • Reflect on how we influence without using power
  • What do person centred approaches mean in practice?

Our annual meeting will include inspirational speakers and the opportunity to engage in workshop sessions to apply what we have learned to our own context.


Showcase: EP leadership research
Vikki Jervis, Joint Principal Educational Psychologist at Bristol City EPS

The overall aim of Vikki's research was to understand the experiences and perceptions of promoted post holders in EP services and she answered 4 research questions:

1. Why do EPs apply for promotes posts and what experiences influence their decisions?
2. What are the experiences of starting first promoted posts and how can this inform us of the support necessary for those embarking on a promoted post?
3. How do EPs develop a leadership knowledge base and what is the leadership knowledge base amongst promoted post holders?
4. How can leadership in EP services be improved?

We are working on an exciting and informative programme, more details will be added here shortly.

Registration is now open. If you have any queries please contact us via the event hotline on 01332 224506.
