The DECAP Programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to train Educational Psychologists.
The first three years of work, post qualification, must be spent (see above) in the EA EPS within Northern Ireland.
"One of the real strengths of the DECAP programme, apart from the breadth of the training provided through teaching and placement opportunities, stems from the close, positive, practical and pastoral support given by the tutor team, all of whom are practitioner EPs themselves. This has been highlighted as a real strength of the programme by all of its External Examiners."DECAP Graduate
The Programme confers a professional qualification to work as an Educational Psychologist. Graduates register with the HCPC, which qualifies them to work anywhere within the UK and in those countries which recognise UK qualifications. The DECAP Programme is the only educational psychology training programme in Northern Ireland and almost all of the appointments of EPs to the EA EPS are recruited from the programme.
