Welcome to the College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists (CEDP). We are a professional community of psychologists specialising in evidence based developmental and educational approaches to the wellbeing of the full spectrum of all people across all ages.
Our members can be found wherever there is a need or opportunity to enhance and adapt education across the developmental stages of life through the application of evidence based psychology, in roles and settings such as school psychologists, assessment and treatment clinics for children, disability services, research or teaching at universities, and in private practice etc.
In a market oriented world we know that it is not enough to simply have something of value to offer. 2015 is a year when the College has committed itself to focusing on defining our distinctives and building our ‘brand,’ and then onworking on ways of actively promoting our specialty, how and what we have to offer.
This website offers more information about who we are and what we do. For more information about the skills and qualifications of Educational and Developmental psychologists, please visit the About Educational and Developmental Psychology section. Advice about joining the College (How to Join) and about supervision (College Supervisors Directory) can also be found.
We are proud of our biennial national conference that is scheduled for Friday the 7th of July, 2017 and is themed, “Learning well, living well… throughout life." Register here.
