Membership - Why should I join?


Membership of the AEP is open to qualified educational psychologists who are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC),  trainee educational psychologists who are currently following an approved professional training course in educational psychology and Assistant Educational Psychologists who intend to undertake training to qualify as practitioner EPs. To find out more about training as an educational psychologist, go to the Training  page.

Different categories of membership are available, to meet the needs of members in varying circumstances (for example; trainees and affiliates).

Application for membership must be made on an application form. This is available from the administration office or to download click here. You will also need to complete the Direct Debit mandate.

Applications for admission to membership are considered by the National Executive Committee of the Association.

If you are considering applying for membership and are not certain if you meet all the requirements, please refer to the guidelines in the Application Pack. To download click here .

It is the responsibility of the member to ensure that they are registered with the HCPC.  Failure to do this would result in their membership being void.
