About the role

​We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, and knowledgeable Associate Child and Educational Psychologists (ACE-Psychologists) to support the growing demand for Child and Educational Psychology services in Staffordshire and the West Midlands. We support a range of service users and are highly regarded by MATS and educational communities with whom we have long term relationships. As a non-LA service, we do not need to fulfil statutory duties, offering a range of benefits and the support of a very nurturing  team.

About Summit Psychological Services

​The founder of Summit is a Child and Educational Psychologist who increasingly provides specialist psychological support in the field of trauma informed practice and EMDR therapy. Due to increasing demand for specialist support, we are seeking ACE-Psychologists who can join the team to support the service’s capacity.

We are passionate about applying evidence-based practice, therapies, and systemic approaches that make a difference, whether that be at an individual level or supporting the development of educational communities and settings through organisational change processes. As we do not have statutory SEND duties, this frees up professional potential to work creatively with schools to bring about positive change for children and young people.

What we’re looking for

We are looking for Associate Child and Educational Psychologists who use a consultation model of service delivery and who can confidently collaborate with educational communities, parents, and other service users to ensure best outcomes for children and young people.

This would be to work closely with a secondary academy in the largest West Midlands city for one day per week during term time. This is a unique and incredibly exciting opportunity to work creatively and collaboratively with students and staff alike.

There is also the potential to support our large and growing Excellent ELSA community in Staffordshire through training and supervision and skills in this area are highly desirable.
